Before Wings of Fire, Duvernay canceled another big project
DC Films and Warner Bros. announced some unpleasant news for DC film fans. They revealed that two interesting projects that were under development but then led to the cancellation. The first is James Wan’s Aquaman spinoff of The Trench and Ava DuVernay’s New Gods project. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the decision was breaking down because DC Films President Walter Hamada and other studio executives decided that the comic book film project currently in development for the DC Extended Universe was not a “natural place” for the next few years. . Therefore, they chose to close those projects for now.
The New Gods tell about the natives of the twin planets from New Genesis and Apokolips. New Genesis is a very beautiful planet ruled by the Highfather, while Apokolips is a dystopian planet full of machines and fire pits and ruled by a tyrant named Darkseid. They call themselves gods, living outside the normal spacetime in the realm known as the Fourth World.
Although the news about the cancellation of the two projects is quite disappointing, the future of DC comic films is still packed with many interesting projects, such as The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, the upcoming The Suicide Squad, and its spinoff series Peacemaker, Block Adam, and Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Blue Beetle, Supergirl, Batgirl, The Flash, Green Lantern Corps, Zatanna, Wonder Woman 3, and its spin-off about DC TE P-Type here to search
