Even though it made more money than any of us will see in our lifetime, the lackluster performance of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was enough for Warner Bros. to reorganize and put Geoff Johns and Jon Berg in charge of DC Films.

geoffjohnsWhy Geoff Johns? Apparently, he is the one being credited for the huge success of the DC properties on the television side (with Greg Berlanti of course), and of course with the big Rebirth event kicking off next week, the Chief Creative Officer seems like the best choice for the DC Films side…

This announcement comes on the heals that Ben Affleck has taken on an executive producer role for Justice League Part One, and directing the upcoming stand alone Batman movie.

The move is part of an evolution of the executive structure at Warner Bros., which has been attempting to rev up its output of movies based on the DC characters, including Aquaman, Wonder Woman and The Flash.

According to the trade magazine, Warner Bros. is streamlining the entire studio side including placing Courtenay Valenti, who will oversee all LEGO Movie projects as well as the Harry Potter line.

Though both THR and Variety are reporting on the news (using inside sources), nothing has been publicly announced from the studio.
