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 unbelievable woman she is for espnW. In this article, he goes in depth about what makes Ava stand out among her peers, Coogler being one of them. "It's why I feel privileged to call her my big sister", Coogler wrote in a letter pubished on ESPN.

Ava is a pioneer.

The director recalled how DuVernay, a publicist-turned-director, was "already one of (his) heroes" before he met her.

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time", an epic adventure based on Madeleine L'Engle's timeless classic that takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light, good versus evil and, ultimately, the triumph of love.

Ava opened A Wrinkle in Time in the U.S. yesterday, and Ryan penned an "ode" to the director of the film starring Oprah Winfrey, calling her a "pioneer" for "inclusion, equity and representation". She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality, ' Coogler wrote.

Ryan Coogler, whose film "Black Panther" took the No. 1 spot to DuVernay's No. 2 film this weekend, was one of the first to congratulate DuVernay and acknowledge her influence.

While Ava DuVernay's "A Wrinkle in Time" came in second place at the box office this weekend, the Disney release only opened to $33.3 million against a reported $103 million budget.

Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon play the three supernatural beings who help guide Meg Murry (Storm Reid), a 13-year-old who loves physics, in a search for her missing father that involves saving the universe from impending evil.

Much like "Black Panther", "A Wrinkle in Time" has been highly anticipated in part because of its portrayal of women and girls of color.
