DC Films Shake-Up Coming After Justice League Failure

Green-Lantern-Corps-Comic

Variety reports that veteran producer Jon Berg, who previous year was appointed alongside DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns to supervise the slate of films based on DC Comics properties, will step aside, and instead work as a production partner of Roy Lee (The LEGO Movie). As a result, Warner Bros.is changing things up at the executive level and considering a few other changes to help get the DCEU on track.

"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", Emmerich said in a statement. The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson. Berg will instead be working alongside producer Roy Lee of films like The Lego Movie and It. "We're thrilled that Jon is partnering with Roy and anticipate their company being a valuable source of movies for Warner Bros. and New Line".

Zack Snyder, who directed and produced Justice League before he had to step down due to a family tragedy, will stay on as producer and exec producer of Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2.

SEE ALSO: Where does Warner Bros. go next with its DC properties after Justice League? Picture Group President Toby Emmerich reportedly considering more fully integrating DC film operations into the larger studio.

"Justice League" has underperformed at the box office, grossing $572 million worldwide since its release in mid-November. While hecklers and observers opine that the studio could have earned $6 billion had "Justice League" performed well, there is no denying that the movie has still made a contribution to its studio.

One of the criticisms levied against Justice League was that the film felt incomplete, or that too much was obviously cut from the finished product after Joss Whedon took over the director's chair from Zack Snyder. That said, Time Warner is reportedly frustrated by the studio's decision to continue have him direct DC movies, especially after the negative critical reception garnered by Batman v Superman.
