Ava DuVernay said there is a strong chance of seeing a cast member of Netflix’s When They See Us in DC’s New Gods film.
In May 2019, Netflix released a miniseries titled When They See Us that explored the lives of the men who were wrongfully convicted in the 1989 Central Park jogger case. Produced, co-written, and directed by Ava DuVernay, When They See Us featured an ensemble cast that included Michael K. Williams, Vera Farmiga, John Leguizamo, Felicity Huffman, Niecy Nash, Blair Underwood, Christopher Jackson, Joshua Jackson, Omar Dorsey, and many more.
Now, Ava DuVernay is hard at work penning the script for New Gods with award-winning comic book writer Tom King and a curious Twitter user asked the filmmaker if any cast members of When They See Us will appear in the DC film. In response, Ava DuVernay noted that each of her narrative works since the film I Will Follow has featured a cast member from the last project she made, meaning there is a “99.9%” chance fans will see a When They See Us cast member join the team on New Gods.

In each of my narrative projects since my first film entitled I WILL FOLLOW, I bring over an actor from the last project I made. So, yes, there is a 99.9% chance this will happen again. https://t.co/BGNvouyNDJ

The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
