Earlier this year, Tom King was announced as the co-writer for director Ava DuVernay's upcoming New Gods film. Now, the Batman writer has revealed when he'll start to working on the project.

During a panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, King was asked by a fan what it's like for him to collaborate with DuVernay, who's also co-writing the script.

"How do you answer that?," replied King. "It's a f-cking joy, she's amazing. She doesn't have an ego, she invited me out and asked what team I wanted to bring. She wanted to assemble people who knew [Jack] Kirby. And next week, I get to go off and work with her."

King himself is no stranger to the world of the New Gods, having written the 12-issue Mister Miracle maxiseries that took a much darker approach at the popular character.

Created by comic icon Jack Kirby during his tenure at DC Comics in 1971, the New Gods are an extraterrestrial race who inhabit two worlds: the peaceful New Genesis, ruled over by the wise Highfather, and the hellish Apokalips, ruled over by the wicked Darkseid. Outside of their roles in the comics and the DC Extended Universe, the New Gods have appeared in other forms of media, such as Superman: The Animated Series and Young Justice.

Directed by Ava DuVernay with a script by DuVernay and Tom King, New Gods currently has no release date or cast announced.
