DC Films To Undergo Major Shake-Up In Light Of Justice League Failure

Justice League disappointed fans

Berg will step down from the studio's executive ranks and become a producer on the lot, the company said Thursday. Berg and Johns may be hardcore fanboys who know these DC properties inside and out, but sometimes that can pose a problem, since these films are trying to appeal to all audiences, not just fans of the comics.

WB's parent company, Time Warner, is said to have supported the moves as the corporate leaders are unhappy with the financial performance of Justice League (current box office at $572 million), which hada budget of around $300 million. Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich is reportedly weighing the idea of shifting the DC Films structure altogether, integrating DC's film operations into the studio's main movie arm instead of keeping them in a separate building. Geoff Johns, the other head of DC Films, is expected to remain in his position as Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment, though the trade also says his role in Warner Bros.' film wing may lessen to an "advisory" capacity.

According to a statement from Warner Bros.

"This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio", Warner Bros.

"Justice League" was a letdown after Warner turned out a hit in June with "Wonder Woman", which generated $822 million worldwide, with about half coming from the US and Canada.

Further changes include that it's likely Ben Affleck's last appearance as Batman will be in the upcoming movie for The Flash, with it also said Matt Reeves wants to cast the new Batman with fresh talent as well for his solo flick. Reportedly Snyder's vision for the villain Steppenwolf was recognized as "faulty" by studio executives, but only so much could be fixed during the reshoots overseen by Joss Whedon.

Up next for the DCEU is James Wan's Aquaman for December 2018; Shazam! is in development for an April 2019 release, the Wonder Woman sequel has a November 2019 release, and a movie for The Flash (said to be Flashpoint) is in development. Although it should be pointed out that Batman v Superman hit theaters mere weeks before Justice League began filming, so it's not like Warner Bros.re-hired Snyder after all the BvS backlash erupted-he was already deep into Justice League at that time.
