Hot shot director Ava DuVernay decides not to direct the Marvel movie due to creative differences.
Before, DuVernay didn’t shot down reports that Marvel is courting her to direct ‘Black Panther’ (also ‘Captain Marvel’), but this time it is official that she won’t be directing the film.
“I’m not signing on to direct Black Panther. I think I’ll just say we had different ideas about what the story would be. Marvel has a certain way of doing things and I think they’re fantastic and a lot of people love what they do. I loved that they reached out to me.”
Marvel and DuVernay had their negotiations and other talks pretty far since the director met Chadwick Boseman and Marvel’s team of writers.
“I loved meeting Chadwick and writers and all the Marvel execs. In the end, it comes down to story and perspective. And we just didn’t see eye to eye. Better for me to realize that now than cite creative differences later.”
She joins the list of directors that passed on offers from Marvel due to the same reasons. Those were Joss Whedon, Edgar Wright and Michelle MacLaren.
Ava DuVernay received accolades for his civil rights film and is one of the hottest and sought after directors of today. She’s making a Hurricane Katrina movie with David Oyelowo and directed the CBS pilot For Justice.
