Selma director, Ava DuVernay has become one of the most sought after directors in Hollywood and now there are reports that Marvel wants to get their hands on the Los Angeles native.

According to The Wrap, Marvel wants DuVernay to direct Black Panther or Captain Marvel, both set to release in 2018. Ava, who was the first black female director to be nominated for a Golden Globe, would be the first black and woman to direct a major superhero movie if she joins the Marvel team.

Back in February, Netflix asked DuVernay if she’d ever be open to directing a major Marvel film and she respond: “I’m not a big comic book fan, but I know I love to deconstruct heroes, deconstruct myths. I probably want to do some origin story.”

“Everything is possible,” she added.

Black Panther, set to star Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa is slated to release in July 2018. Captain Marvel, which “follows a woman named Carol Danvers who receives powers after encountering an alien from the Kree Empire” is expected to release in November 2018.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
