DC Shake Up in the Works After 'Justice League' Stumbles

DC Shake Up in the Works After 'Justice League' Stumbles

After Justice League stumbled not only critically but, crucially, at the box office as well, Johns and Berg are reportedly out-and Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, et.al. are once again a group of heroes in search of a leader.

The first step in the so-called "shake-up" regards Jon Berg, who now heads up the production division of the DC Extended Universe. Johns will stay as a chief creative officer with DC Entertainment, but his work on the films could be reduced to an advisory role.

Berg is said to be segueing into a role as producer for Warner Bros., working alongside The Lego Movie and It producer Roy Lee. Neither Johns nor Berg, who received Producer credits on Justice League, are expected to receive similar credits on upcoming films such as Aquaman or Wonder Woman 2, though director Zack Snyder, who departed Justice League before Joss Whedon was brought in for reshoots, could serve as a producer on future films.

Does this indicate a positive turn of events in the DCEU, or are you anxious that Warner Bros. might dilute a brand that's already having an identity crisis by shifting it under a single WB production banner?

Naturally, hearing this from Hecker will only increase fans' desires for a Snyder cut, which could result in Warner Bros. putting out a new version of the film down the line.

Homelessness among families with children decreased by 15.2 percent ( or 700 ) across the state since 2016. Soaring rents is found to be one major reason for the increase, especially in the western United States.

Emmerich is said to be considering folding the DC Films venture back into the main Warner Bros. film wing, and not with its own division. With the Man of Steel having perished in the film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", many fans thought that Superman's return in "Justice League" would also see him wear a black "recovery suit" of some kind.

It's reported Zack Snyder will not be directing another DC movie, but is still involved as a producer and executive producer on several DC films. Up to this point, DC Films has mostly worked autonomously from the larger WB umbrella - not unlike how Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm work at Disney - but that could change by January as well.

The only positives you can take from Variety's report is that it's believed Warner Bros. are happy to continue with the Flashpoint movie, stating that it could well be Ben Affleck's final outing as the Dark Knight, what with Matt Reeves wanting to measure up someone else for the cape and cowl for his standalone Batman movie.
