The antagonists for the upcoming New Gods film from A Wrinkle in Time director Ava Duvernay have been revealed according to a report from GeeksWorldWide.
Granny Goodness and the Female Furies will serve as the antagonists while Mister Miracle and Big Barda will be the protagonists according to numerous inside sources with knowledge of the Warner Bros./DC project. However, the film is still currently in the process of being written so the protagonists and antagonists could change later on before pre-production starts.

It is possible that other notable New Gods characters such as Orion could appear in the film and take the lead due to the character’s familial ties to long-time Justice League rogue, Darkseid. Whether this film is connected to Warner’s commercially successful DC Extended Universe is presently unknown, but there is a possibility that it may be. In 2017, Zack Snyder’s Justice League gave mainstream audiences an introduction into the lore of the New Gods with inclusion of parademons, Steppenwolf, and motherboxes.
Created by comics legend Jack Kirby, The New Gods was a vast, cosmic space opera mixing sci-fi with mythology, and was sometimes also referred to as “The Fourth World.” It was Kirby’s first work for DC Comics after departing from Marvel Comics after spending nearly a decade of collaboration with fellow Golden Age legend Stan Lee who helped him create the Marvel Universe into the way we know it today.
