Ava DuVernay bringing DC’s Naomi to The CW

December 5th, 2020 by Marc Comments

While it’s been well over two years since we heard Ava DuVernay was directing a New Gods movie at DC Comics (here), it seems she’s still setting her sights on DC properties.

News has come out that DuVernay is working with The CW in developing a series based on DC’s Naomi comic.

Written by Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker, “Naomi follows a young woman on her unique hero’s journey. The CW take, which is being written and exec produced by DuVernay and Blankenship, follows a teen girl’s journey from her small northwestern town to the heights of the multiverse. When a supernatural event rattles her hometown, Naomi sets out to uncover its origins. What she discovers will challenge everything people believe about superheroes.”

The series comes over to The CW as Supergirl and Black Lightning begin on their final seasons, and word is The CW is looking to rejuvenate their DC catalogue of shows. Although no word so far if this will actually be part of The Arrowverse or if, like Star Girl, it will be (mostly) its own series.

It will also be the first DC property on the network not produced by Greg Berlanti.

We’re not sure if DuVernay’s New Gods movie is still happening but at least she’s still in the DC universe. what do you all think?

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
