A Disastrous Justice League Sends Warner Bros

Word is Berg never wanted to oversee the entire division for Warner Bros., and approached the studio about adopting a producer role nearly six months ago. Jon Berg and Geoff Johns were tapped to co-run DC Films.

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.

Here's the official word from Toby Emmerich, president of Warner Bros.

In addition, it's suggested further changes include that both Jon Berg and Geoff Johns will not be receiving full producer credits on future DCEU movies like they did with Justice League.

Johns will remain chief creative officer for DC, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing private information.

There looks to be major shifts at Warner Bros. with its DC Comics movies, and not even its top creatives are safe. Warner Bros. reportedly believes that there is only one redeeming quality of Justice League: the introduction of the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) to the silver screen.

"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 outlet also reports that Warner Bros.is considering moving their DC films under their main production arm, making it no longer a separate division of the studio, similar to how the X-Men films are set up at 20th Century Fox and unlike Marvel Studios at Disney.

Further, Variety reports that Ben Affleck is expected to reprise his role as Batman in the upcoming Flashpoint film, though The Batman director Matt Reeves is said to be eyeing "fresh talent" to take the role in his film. Someone at Warner Bros. has to realize that most of us don't want to see CGI villains like Steppenwolf, who means nothing to a majority of the audience. So while Snyder maintains a production deal with the studio as he develops The Last Photograph, I wouldn't necessarily expect him to return to the DCEU anytime soon. On a purely storytelling level, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and especially Suicide Squad were just ghastly and embarrassing.
