“Black Panther” News, Ava DuVernay Will Not Direct

Ava DuVernay has decided not to work with Marvel Studios and she will not be directing Black Panther, according to an interview with Essence.

“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,” said Ava DuVernay.

“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,” said Ava DuVernay.

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman and scheduled to hit theaters on November 3, 2017.
