After Justice League Failure, Head Of DC Films Jon Berg To Vacate Position

Justice League wasn't the hit DC Warner Bros. was expecting.

It took Justice League 19 days to cross the $200 million mark domestically. In comparison, Man of Steel, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman all did it in 10, while Batman v Superman did it in 6. Adjusted for inflation, this makes Justice League the second-lowest live-action Batman movie behind Batman & Robin.

Following that failure, DC Films is restructuring with the head of the division Jon Berg leaving his position. Warner Bros. is expected to name a new person as the head of the division. Berg will become a production partner with Roy Lee, the producer of The Lego Movie and It. Meanwhile, Geoff Johns will stay as DC Entertainment's chief creative officer. 

Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich is weighing the option of integrating DC's film division under the studio's main movie arm. If it occurs, this is expected to take place in January.

The studio, and fans everywhere, are frustrated with Zack Snyder's involvement with DC's films, citing diminishing returns.
