Will Darkseid finish what Steppenwolf started? | New DC Movie

The future of the DC Live-action movies seems a little more secure than ever before. The success of standalone films like Wonder Woman and Aquaman revived the DCEU. Wonder Woman 1984 starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine is slated to be out soon. Birds of Prey starring Margot Robbie will begin filming this month.

There are other movies in the pipeline but our latest update is on the Ava DuVernay New Gods movie. Ava DuVernay is an extremely talented director with movies such as ” Selma” and ” Middle of Nowhere” on her resumé. DC hired her in March 2018, and since then there have been no updates on the movie until now. Now according to the sources, the villain in the New Gods movie will be Darkseid, Granny Goodness, and The Female Furies.

Big Barda is expected to be the Super-heroine and Tom King and AvaDuVerney will be writing the script. Ava has recently been active on Twitter with the following.

The New Gods

The New Gods appeared in DC comics after the death of Old Gods. The creation belongs to Jack Kirby and first appeared in 1971. They are the citizens of the planets New Genesis and Apokolips. Collectively they are called the Fourth World. New Gods are beings of Superhuman powers and are far more evolved than humans in terms of mental and physical abilities.

Who is Darkseid?

Darkseid is the tyrant ruler of the planet Apokolips. He is one of the most powerful villains in the DC universe and the antagonist in several Superman stories. The live-action Justice League movie mentioned the Evil New Gods and Darkseid. Darkseid was initially expected to appear in the film, but he was cut off, which disappointed the fans. The appearance of the new characters like Big Barda and Female Furies is a plus point.

For now, the DCEU is not what we expected a few years ago. Justice Leauge and Batman vs Superman disappointed fans. Finally, Wonder Woman and Aquaman gave us some hope. We expect Ava to do what Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. failed to do with New gods and give us some exceptional movies.
