In this article, he goes in depth about what makes Ava stand out among her peers, Coogler being one of them.

Coogler, who recently directed the Marvel hit Black Panther showed some serious love for DuVernay on the opening day of her film A Wrinkle In Time, writing a heartfelt ode to their friendship and the awesome woman she is for espnW. I met her in 2013, but she's one of those people who you feel like you've always known.

A film that depicts a black protagonist-in all her fury, pain, and love-is especially radical, Ford explains, because America has continually "sought to conscript. black [women] into a toolbox for the country's deliverance".

"It's why I feel privileged to call her my big sister", the Black Panther director raved on ESPN on Friday.

Duvernay, whose lack of nomination for Best Director Oscar for Selma in 2015 contributed to the #OscarsSoWhite movement, is the first African-American woman to direct a film with a budget of $100 million dollars. "Ava is inclusion, equity and representation", wrote Coogler.

The Disney film, directed by Ava DuVernay, boasts an incredible cast - including Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon - but a negative reception from critics risked denting its returns in cinemas. She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality, ' Coogler wrote.

Now it looks like the overall weekend will be a photo finish: Wrinkle In Time's estimates are at around $40 million - with Black Panther thought to be cruising towards $37 million.

The weekend box office saw "A Wrinkle in Time" flattened by "Black Panther", which remained in the No. 1 spot for the fourth weekend in a row. She's quickly become someone to watch in Hollywood, and she's just released her newest film, A Wrinkle in Time, a major Disney property that is essentially about a "little black girl with glasses".
