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

Deathstroke Joe Manganiello

Johns is expected to remain as DC's chief creative officer, reporting to DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson. No word yet on who will replace Jon Berg at the helm of DC Films, but WB will likely want to name his successor sooner rather than later - particularly with Aquaman on the horizon.

Variety reports that veteran producer Jon Berg, who previous year was appointed alongside DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns to supervise the slate of films based on DC Comics properties, will step aside, and instead work as a production partner of Roy Lee (The LEGO Movie).

What should comes as no surprise, it's being reported Warner Bros.is giving the DCEU an overhaul following the disappointment of Justice League. Though the over-$800-million worldwide gross for "Batman v Superman" cushioned the blow for Warner Bros., Variety reported that the studio was concerned by the dark tone of the "Justice League" script and was hoping for something lighter. Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich is reportedly weighing the idea of shifting the DC Films structure altogether, integrating DC's film operations into the studio's main movie arm instead of keeping them in a separate building. "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".

Berg, who ran point on DC movies and was credited as a producer on "Justice League", has been an executive at the studio for about a decade.

According to a statement from Warner Bros.

Variety says there are no immediate plans for Snyder to direct another DC movie, and the outlet notes that Time Warner-Warner Bros.' parent company-"is said to be frustrated that Warner Bros. leaders continued to bring the director back".

WB reportedly doesn't consider Justice League a failure, however, as it successfully introduced audiences to Ezra Miller's The Flash and Jason Momoa's Aquaman, both of which have their own films in the works.

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. The studio is "still developing a standalone Flash feature".
