Justice League Failure Causes a Major Shake-Up at DC Films

Warner Bros. is in the middle of reconfiguring the DCEU after the less than stellar performance of Justice League at the box office, according to a new report from Variety. The report also goes on to say that it’s inevitable that Ben Affleck will be leaving Matt Reeves’ The Batman and that the director has already been talking to new actors to take over the role, which has been previously reported. There had been rumors before that Warner Bros. was aiming for Justice League to be a homerun and if it wasn’t, restructuring would occur to make up for Batman v Superman.

Variety reports that Jon Berg will leave his post as the head of the DC Films division. Berg will apparently become a production partner with Roy Lee, the producer of IT and The LEGO Movie and Warner Bros.

Is reportedly currently looking for a replacement for Berg. The changeover is expected to start right after the new year. Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich had this to say about the situation.

“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. I first met Jon when, as a producer, he brought Elf to New Line, which remains one of the best and most evergreen titles in the library. 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.”

Geoff Johns, who has partnered with Jon Berg on much of the creative direction of the DCEU movies, is expected to continue serving as DC Entertainment’s chief creative officer, but may stay on as more of an advisor to new projects.
