Justice League's Underperformance leads to shake-up for future DC Films

Justice League's Underperformance leads to shake-up for future DC Films

The report suggests that Warner Bros. are reportedly planning to either announce a replacement for Johns and Berg in January, or perhaps more concerning is the idea that they'll absorb control of DC Films into the studio's larger filmmaking operation.

Variety is reporting that the first casualty will be Jon Berg, who was ushered in along with Geoff Johns to oversee the the DCEU in the wake of the perceived failure of Suicide Squad and BvS. "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".

Some diehard fans are convinced that if only director Zack Snyder's director's cut could be released, the film would be seen in its originally-intended glory - without the contributions of Joss Whedon, who stepped in to direct reshoots after Snyder left the project due to a family tragedy.

Variety reports DCEU co-runner Jon Berg will step away from his duties and will now be a producer for Warner Bros.

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

3 dead, 15 hurt in New Mexico high school shooting
The Bloomfield Police Department is asking parents to stay away from the school until further notice. As the noise got louder and closer, school officials issued a warning over the loud speaker.

Another part of the revamp is rumored to be a future investment in the DC film studio from producer Roland Emmerich, who is responsible for such films as both Independence Day films, Godzilla (1998), and The Day After Tomorrow.

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. Well, Marvel's Avengers might end up grossing more domestically ($623 million) than Justice League does worldwide - and worldwide Marvel's Avengers grossed an incredible $1.5 billion.

It's reported Zack Snyder will not be directing another DC movie, but is still involved as a producer and executive producer on several DC films. Snyder will still have producer/executive producer credits for next year's Aquaman and 2019's Wonder Woman 2, so there is some hope in seeing him return. He still has a production deal with the studio so he could direct other films in the future. That would entail putting the divisions under the same roof rather than having DC remain in a separate building on the lot, sources say. Other films in development include Wonder Woman 2 and Shazam!

As far as changes to the cast, Ben Affleck is now expected to appear as Batman in "The Flash" movie alongside Ezra Miller but all signs are pointing towards director Matt Reeves going with a younger star to play the role in his movie "The Batman".
