The New Gods will have a similar budget, and now "there is no connection to the [studio's] other DC worlds". They inhabited two planets, New Genesis and Apokolips and war ensued between the two. Their populations became known as the New Gods, the immortal denizens of the cosmos who existed outside the constraints of earthly time and space.

It gives DuVernay the creative freedom to tell the story she wants rather than worry about what's happening with Batman or Superman or any other superhero property.

One very popular New God in DC Comics right now is Mister Miracle.

Also of note, Deadline's report hints that The New Gods bears no affiliation with the other DC-related projects percolating at Warner Bros., so perhaps Ava DuVernay's blockbuster will be able to stand on its own two feet?

Crude oil lower despite strong Chinese growth and API data
US bank Goldman Sachs said in a note that there was a "potentially large increase in (U.S.) drilling activity in coming weeks". Output has been helped by the 25% rise in oil prices over the past year, along with improvements in efficiency and technology.

They have a 6-0 mark in Charlotte with first- and second-round wins there in 2005 and '11 and two regional wins there '08. The Cyclones enter this year's tournament as the No. 10 seed and will need to prevail again to keep playing next week.

Richard Sherman to visit with the Lions
It also might convince defensive end Julius Peppers, who's weighing his future, to decide to play another season. This year's market has some solid young cornerbacks, but none of them are as decorated as Richard Sherman .

One of the hottest names in Hollywood to direct a big budget superhero movie has been Ava DuVernay. For example, the New Gods of Earth Prime are the same New Gods of Earth-2. New Genesis is an idyllic planet ruled by the Highfather, while Apokolips is a dystopia filled with machinery and fire pits - ruled by the tyrant Darkseid. She just released a movie with the Mouse House (A Wrinkle In Time), further strengthening her relationship with them and making her an even more fan-favorite choice to join a mega-universe.

In addition to Kirby's original titles, the Fourth World Saga has continued through a number of DC comic book series across the past four decades, as well as forming the basis for storylines in animated series and DC's recent live-action movies; the villain Steppenwolf and the Mother Box from last year's Justice League are both Kirby creations from the Fourth World Saga.

We'll keep you posted on more about The New Gods as soon as we hear it, but for now, my head is still reeling about this news. With her deal closing, they will now look to find a screenwriter to help bring DuVernay's vision to life.
