DC is still trying to get their film operation where they want it to be. According to a new report from Variety, Warner Bros. will be restructuring and revamp their approach to their comic properties.
Word of the studio’s superhero make-over arrives alongside the news that co-chairman of DC Films Jon Berg is leaving his job with the search for a replacement underway. Variety reports that the underwhelming performance of Justice League is the reason for reevaluation, which ranked as another film under the production company that was not a hit with critics or the box office titan it was projected to be.
The DC overhaul is expected to take place in January with Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich said to be considering placing these films under the studio’s “main movie arm.” That potential news would obviously change the way Warner Bros. handles their DC properties and eliminate the current level of separation between the two entities.
Warner Bros. changing their DC film projects will bring up a lot of speculation and rumors. It’s not like previous DC movies have not gone under studio intervention, but how fans will respond to this adjustment remains to be seen.
