Update: So, after reviewing the tape, we acknowledge there is some room for interpretation here. The exact quote he gave was “I did Mister Miracle which is being turned into a movie w Ava Duvernay.” Given the character’s involvement in New Gods, it is possible that he could be saying the character would be in that film, which Ava DuVernay is attached to, but we initially read it as a reveal of a new standalone film.
We still don’t know, and this may or may not be the case. LRM Online apologizes if this is incorrect, but I figured I’d update the piece to avoid any confusion.
Who says nothing big drops at random panels? LRM Online’s own Fox and Jill Troilo were in attendance at the DC Nation panel at New York Comic Con where Tom King was in attendance. For those who don’t know, King is kind of a big deal in the world of comics, especially for his work on Mister Miracle, and it’s actually regarding that property we have news about.
During the panel, he rattled off a bunch of upcoming projects, and happened to drop that Mister Miracle was being made into a movie from filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who’s known for films like Selma and A Wrinkle in Time.
Also notable is that she is directing New Gods for DC and that King is working on it with her as writer. Clearly, it sounds like the two have enjoyed working with one another and are extending that relationship to yet another film that will take the character from New Gods.
Sadly, the moderator moved the discussion quickly and no further details were given, but that’s pretty exciting!
What do you think of Mister Miracle leading his own film? Let us know down below!
