DC FILMS Staff Shake-Up Following JUSTICE LEAGUE Performance

Justice-League-Dark

Change is 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).

This DC "overhaul" is expected to happen by January, and while there's no guarantee the DC Films arm will be integrated, the fact that Emmerich is considering this as an option speaks to the degree to which WB is unhappy with its DC output so far. It was too late for them to entirely course correct on Suicide Squad, which was just as ravaged by critics as Batman v. Superman had been-but after the unalloyed success of Wonder Woman this summer, a Variety lede proclaimed: "Jon Berg and Geoff Johns are riding high".

The film was meant to be the studio's answer to Marvel's The Avengers, but as a comparable superhero pic Justice League has been grossing far less at the box office than WB had hoped, and reviews have been unkind. Berg is stepping down from his role to become a production partner with The Lego Movie and It producer Roy Lee. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich is considering integrating the DC films into the main Warner Bros. movie division as the DCEU presently is separate on the lot. "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".

Another way to determine the effectiveness of a company's distributions is by looking at the Shareholder yield (Mebane Faber). The VC1 is calculated using the price to book value, price to sales, EBITDA to EV, price to cash flow, and price to earnings.

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.

A year and a half ago, after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice performed terribly with critics, Warner Bros. reacted swiftly. "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". However, the outlet notes that Johns' involvement with DC films "may evolve" moving forward, and "could be more advisory in nature". The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson. It's said Justice League was expected to be the answer to Marvel's The Avengers, which made $1.5 billion back in 2012.

The decision for restructuring comes after Justice League has brought in just $572 million worldwide, making it the lowest grossing film in the DCEU by nearly $100 million. The studio is "still developing a standalone Flash feature".
