Ava DuVernay Will NOT Be Directing Black Panther After All

July 4, 2015  |  

Ava DuVernay exclusively confirmed to the Huffington Post that she will not be directing the Black Panther movie. The director stated,

It wasn’t for me,” DuVernay told HuffPost at the 21st annual Essence Music Festival. “I loved exploring it, I loved the character, I love that they called me about it, but ultimately, when I delved into it, it wasn’t a good match, so I wish them luck.”

Fans of DuVernay are definitely disappointed but we’re sure they understand.We would rather see Ava shine as a director for a film she truly loved and felt confident with. The Marvel film will star Chadwick Boseman and is scheduled to be released late 2018.
