Marvel Wants Ava DuVernay

Ava DuVernay

Marvel has begun courting Ava DuVernay to direct one of its forthcoming "diverse movies," the Wrap reports. The comic-book studio apparently has her in mind for either Black Panther (their first movie with a lead superhero who isn't White) or Captain Marvel (their first movie with a lead superhero who isn't a man) — the former of which is supposed to be the more likely option, according to the Wrap's sources. If such a deal were to go through, DuVernay would not only be Marvel's first female director (after Patty Jenkins was taken off Thor: The Dark World), she'd also be the studio's first African-American helmer. Black Panther is set for 2018, and Captain Marvel is slated for 2019.
