Justice League performance leads to huge DC restructure at Warner Bros

Justice League has become the highest-grossing DC film in China 'Justice League' Cinematographer Says Black Superman Costume Exists, Was Cut From Film

Since Justice League has only managed to earn $573 million at the global box office so far, it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros.is planning a big overhaul of DC Films, which will include a restructuring of the superhero movie branch as well as new people in charge of the DCEU, with a shakeup coming as soon as January.

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

Standing president and chief creative officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns, who has teamed up with Berg and has had a hand in the creative direction of many DC movies, will remain in his position.

Berg is said to be segueing into a role as producer for Warner Bros., working alongside The Lego Movie and It producer Roy Lee.

Berg, who ran point on DC movies and was credited as a producer on "Justice League", has been an executive at the studio for about a decade. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich, this shift in personnel isn't entirely a reaction to the disappointing numbers from Justice League. "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".

Emmerich is said to be considering folding the DC Films venture back into the main Warner Bros. film wing, and not with its own division. In those issues, Superman was killed by Doomsday, much as he was in last year's movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and returned with a dramatic new look. Warner Bros. reportedly believes that there is only one redeeming quality of Justice League: the introduction of the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) to the silver screen. An early version, directed by Zack Snyder, alarmed studio executives with its dark tone. It appears Warner Bros. share the same opinion, and the studio has begun a huge shake-up a mere twenty days after the film hit cinema screens.

In an interview with Inverse, Wagner revealed that the footage was amongst several scenes filmed by original director Zack Snyder that were ultimately cut.
