Snyder’s League led to “New Gods” scrap?

Full trailer Zack Snyders Justice League

For a few years there, director Ava DuVernay was linked to a film adaptation of Jack Kirby’s classic DC Comics title “New Gods”, which oversaw the creation of the famous DC villain Darkseid.

Then back in April, she revealed that the project had been scrapped along with James Van’s “The Trench” movie. The other day, DuVernay spoke with
Radio Andy on SiriusXM (via The Playlist) and offered insight into what happened.

In the clip, she seems to suggest that the launch of the new “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” back in March caused a conflict in the studio and led to Warners passing on “New Gods”:

“The studio decided that they did not want to pursue a certain part of that comic book world based on some thing going on with another movie in that world. So before I was even able to finish my script with Tom King, they abolished it. . “

Snyder’s re – cut film included the characters Darkseid and Granny Goodness from the comic book “New Gods” in his narrative, which is seen as a potential source of confusion for the new film, which Duvernay should have directed and co-written with comic book author Tom King.

DuVurnay is still working with WarnerMedia on other comic book titles, including “DMZ” and “Naomi”.
