Tom King is set to co-write DC’s New Gods film with director Ava DuVernay. The Wrap reports that King, who is the current writer on the bi-monthly Batman comic, will co-write the film with Duvernay. He comes with New Gods credentials, having written an acclaimed 12-issue Mister Miracle limited series that delved into the New Gods mythology.

Duvernay is set to direct the film, which will focus on the New Genesis/Apokolips cosmic settings. The New Gods first appeared in 1971 and are are natives of the twin planets of New Genesis and Apokolips. New Genesis is an idyllic planet ruled by the Highfather, while Apokolips is a dystopia filled with machinery and fire pits ruled by the tyrant Darkseid. New Genesis and Apokolips call themselves gods, living outside of normal time and space in a realm known as the Fourth World.
