'Ava DuVernay to direct Marvel's first black superhero film'

IN HIGH DEMAND: Will Ava DuVernay ben venturing into the realm of superheros?

SELMA DIRECTOR Ava DuVernay will reportedly become the first black female director to take charge of a Marvel superhero film.

According to rumours last night (Jun22), DuVernay has been chosen to direct Marvel's first black-lead superhero movie, Black Panther.

Black Panther, which stars Chadwick Boseman – who played James Brown in last year's biopic Get On Up – in the lead role, is set for release in 2018.


BLACK SUPERHERO: If the rumours are true, DuVernay will be directing Chadwick Boseman in his role as Black Panther

Yesterday, MCU Exchange exclusively reported (thanks to our sources) that DuVernay had been hired by Marvel Studios to direct the upcoming Black Panther film. Neither Marvel or the director have confirmed.

DuVernay would be the first black female director to helm a Marvel film.

Black Panther was the first ever black superhero, appearing in the 60s as a supporting character in the Avengers comics before his back story in the fictional African nation of Wakanda was expanded in the 200-page Panther’s Rage.
