Fans are well aware of the backlash that BvS received after not living up to its expectations. This has caused DC Comics’ CCO to climb on board to help take the DCCU into the direction that fans want to see it go in. Here are some of the details released thus far by The Hollywood Reporter:
“The Burbank-based studio is making changes to the way it handles its DC Entertainment-centered films, giving oversight of the feature projects to a pair of executives and creating a dedicated division for the films. Current exec vp Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, DC’s CCO who successfully launched the comics label’s foray into television, will co-run DC Films, according to multiple sources. Warner Bros. declined to comment.
With Berg and Johns, Warners is attempting to unify the disparate elements of the DC movies with a seasoned film exec and a comics veteran that together can hopefully emulate the way Marvel Studios has produced its films under the vision of president Kevin Feige. But sources also say Warners still wants to remain filmmaker-driven. As part of the new job, Berg and Johns will become producers on the Justice League movies.”
The Hollywood Reporter also stated that the reshoots made for Suicide Squad are the reason Johns came aboard, and being involved in the film’s post-production development is his first contribution to the DC Cinematic Universe.
There is bound to be more news following this, so be on the look out for updates and development!
