Chris Evangelista reporting for /Film.
I’m stoked for this news. I haven’t actually read the stuff Tom King is most famous for (Vision, and The Sheriff of Babylon, which I need to correct), but I’ve loved his stuff on Batman. He seems like he has the perfect sensibilities to work on New Gods.
I’m also pretty ignorant of Ava DuVernay’s work, not having seen Selma or A Wrinkle in Time, but I plan on watching When They See Us as soon as it drops on Netflix May 31. Based on the trailers I have seen, the eye is definitely there.
Hopefully the two of them can craft something really spectacular together.
