A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay took to Twitter for a recent Q&A with her fans when one of them asked her to reveal her favorite superhero. Surprisingly, DuVernay’s answer was a deep cut, going with DC Comics’ Big Barda.
For those who may not be familiar with the character, Big Barda is a Jack Kirby creation, a member of the New Gods and the wife of Mister Miracle. Possessing superhuman strength, Big Barda has been around for over 40 years, appearing in several animated series including Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
