Ava DuVernay Declines Marvel’s Offer To Direct “Black Panther” Movie

We should have known it was too good to be true…

Yesterday, at the ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans, BOSSIP spoke to director Ava DuVernay about her potential involvement in Marvel’s new African superhero flick “Black Panther”. While we were thrilled to speak to her, she revealed to us some sad news…

We’d be a damn lie to tell you we’re not terribly disappointed, but hopefully Marvel finds another black director with whom they can see eye-to-eye.

What do you think of Marvel’s recent attempts to integrate more African-American characters into their films?
