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

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

The first step in the so-called "shake-up" regards Jon Berg, who now heads up the production division of the DC Extended Universe.

Variety reports that veteran producer Jon Berg, who a year ago 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). Berg is stepping down from his role to become a production partner with The Lego Movie and It producer Roy Lee.

Studio executives Jon Berg and Geoff Johns will no longer lead Warner's DC Comics films, a year after they were put in charge of the franchise.

Berg oversaw the studio's DC feature, along with DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns, who also runs point on the studio's DC television offerings. Toby Emmerich, president of Warner Bros. "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".

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".

Indeed, Emmerich is said to be mulling over the idea of uprooting the DC Films structure altogether so that it's integrated into the main Warner Bros. arm, as opposed to keeping it in a separate building.

Should this prove true, Justice League will truly be remembered as a defining sea change for the DC Extended Universe - but not as we initially thought. Troubles on Justice League first began as an early cut of the film by Zack Snyder was screened for studio executives (which we now know DID feature the famous black suit for Superman) who were reportedly alarmed by its dark tone, which had been a major criticism of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The reorganization is expected to take place by January, with Warner Bros.

Further changes include that it's likely Ben Affleck's last appearance as Batman will be in the upcoming movie for The Flash, with it also said Matt Reeves wants to cast the new Batman with fresh talent as well for his solo flick.
