After Justice League Failure DC Plans Revamp

The corporate leaders at Time Warner are not too pleased with how Justice League performed at the box office, and as such are reportedly in favor of the reorganization. Jon Berg, who had been running the DC film production, will leave that job to work with Roy Lee (The Lego Movie, IT) as a production partner. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich said in a statement.

However, this is as much WB's own failure to recognize the kind of film it wanted Justice League to be, regardless of Snyder's specific brand of "arty" (or boring, depending on who you ask) darkness. I don't know. But the timing is certainly suspicious.

Justice League is the first live-action based on the team that is older than Marvel's Avengers.

Though Snyder won't be directing another DC movie, his production deal will stay intact and he will still be executive producer on upcoming DC titles for Warner Bros., "Wonder Woman 2" and "Aquaman". Whedon helmed the movie's reshoots throughout the summer and oversaw editing on the final cut that ended up in theaters, but that version removed many of Snyder's scenes and gave audiences something tonally different than what they expected from a Snyder movie.

While Berg's ongoing relationship with Warner Bros. demonstrates the amicable nature of the change, it follows on the heels of a mixed year for the DCEU on the big screen.

The Warner Bros. film executive in charge of production on the studios' DC superhero films is stepping down after the under-performance of Justice League at the box office.

Think of today's news like ripping off a Band-Aid. There's talk that DC films will be combined into the studio's regular production/development department.

The report also mentions Warner Bros.

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.

This is on the heels of his last two DC movies, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League", both getting hammered by the critics. As of now, there are no plans for Snyder to return to direct any future DC movies. This seems rather obvious after the success of Wonder Woman, but WB should instead play to these iconic characters' strengths and focus a lot more on honing relatable stories. It's now unknown who will step in to handle directorial duties on the previously-announced sequel to Justice League. Other films in development include Wonder Woman 2 and Shazam!

The execs are said to be happy with how Justice League introduced both Ezra Miller's The Flash and Jason Momoa's Aquaman.
