DC FILMS Staff Shake-Up Following JUSTICE LEAGUE Performance

Berg will instead be working alongside producer Roy Lee of films like The Lego Movie and It.

It sounds like Warner Bros. may need a whole separate disc containing Deleted Scenes when it comes to the Bonus Material that could be included in the Blu-ray release of the "Justice League" movie. 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. Johns will stay as a chief creative officer with DC Entertainment, but his work on the films could be reduced to an advisory role. The DC unit will get a new leader and will be folded into the motion-picture division led by Toby Emmerich, a person familiar with the matter said. In those issues, Superman was killed by Doomsday, much as he was in last year's movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and returned with a dramatic new look. Marvel, which is owned by Disney, does operate its comic book film division autonomously, but other studios, such as Fox and Sony, produce their superhero films under the studio's banner.

Justice League is now playing. The studio was concerned that each subsequent film was making less money than its predecessor, and they'd noticed that the Man of Steel director was persisting with an overtly dark tone. Studio executives recognized early on that Snyder's decision to have Steppenwolf, a god-like, all CGI creation, as the principal antagonist was faulty.

According to a statement from Warner Bros.

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.

The execs are said to be happy with how Justice League introduced both Ezra Miller's The Flash and Jason Momoa's Aquaman. Going forward, Warner Bros.is planning a sequel to "Wonder Woman" that's believed to be set in the Cold War, and New Line has greenlit a "Shazaam" feature.
