DC Movie Producer Jon Berg Exits Warner Bros., Joins Roy Lee Banner

DC Movie Producer Jon Berg Exits Warner Bros., Joins Roy Lee Banner

Variety reported Thursday that there were no immediate plans for Zack Snyder, director of numerous DC Comics titles for the studio including "Justice League", to direct another DC movie.

Standing president and chief creative officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns, who has teamed up with Berg and has had a hand in the creative direction of many DC movies, will remain in his position.

Emmerich, the former head of New Line Cinema, a year ago replaced Greg Silverman to improve the performance of Warner's movie studio.

Variety also reports that director Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, Justice League) might be out for good as a director, even if he stays on in some capacity as a producer.

Unfortunately, "Justice League" has been a flop by comparison drawing just $570 million worldwide on a $300 million budget that could ultimately cost the studio money when it's all said and done.

On day 20, Justice League sits at a measly $201 million.

Emmerich is also reportedly considering further integration of the DC Films operation into the studio's main production arm.

Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield wins the Heisman Trophy
Jackson finished the 2017 regular season with 3,489 passing yards, 25 touchdowns, 1,443 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. The Austin, Texas, native now leads the nation in passing efficiency, completion percentage and yards per pass attempt.

Whedon attempted to salvage the film by adding some lighter and more humorous moments to "Justice League" including several very expensive reshoots but so much of the movie had already been shot that it was almost impossible to cram his vision on top of what Snyder had already completed.

It also notes, as an aside, that there are now no plans for Zack Snyder to direct another DC movie.

While the film isn't faring well domestically, new reports suggest that it is performing better overseas, particularly in China, where the film has already grossed $98 million.

In the first three weeks, Justice League racked up a disappointing global gross of $573 million, compared to the first Avengers film which made $1.5 billion. The changes to DC are expected to be made by next month. 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. There are also unhappy that each new DC film earns less than the one before it, with the exception of Wonder Woman.

With Aquaman next year and both Shazam and Wonder Woman 2 coming next year, there are more DC films coming.

Meanwhile, as for the DC films themselves, it's safe to say we'll see Ben Affleck playing Batman at least once more in the planned Flashpoint movie, but Variety confirms the Internet scuttlebutt that Matt Reeves is looking to recast the role for his upcoming standalone film.
