The GL film was a disaster, but not a career killer. It didn't stop Johns from writing scripts for Arrow last season.
I find it hard to believe that Johns would put his Hollywood dreams on hold forever just to be a DC exec.
I didn't say Johns's career in Hollywood is dead, just that it's not his primary area of employ, as you were claiming. He's a comics writer that does some work in Hollywood.
Now if you wanted to get into hardcore comics comparisons, you might have some ground to stand on. Johns is nowhere near the same levels of "comic book" creator as John Byrne, Kurt Busiek, Alan Moore, etc. but he's getting closer each day (for good and bad, lol).
