DCEU getting reworked following disappointment of Justice League

Share

"Justice League" opened below forecasts with $93.8 million on its debut weekend on November 15-17 in the seventh-largest domestic launch of 2017.

Jon Berg, who has been running the DC Comic Films with Geoff Johns, is stepping down from his role, according to the trade.

This would be the Google-owned company's third attempt to successfully compete with industry-leaders Spotify and Apple. YouTube has reached out to artists to seek their help in promoting the new service, one of the people said.

"This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio", Warner Bros. The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson.

Warner Bros will still count on Justice League to have a good run in these regions till this Friday, when Star Wars: The Last Jedi is all set for a massive opening. Though the over-$800-million worldwide gross for "Batman v Superman" cushioned the blow for Warner Bros., Variety reported that the studio was concerned by the dark tone of the "Justice League" script and was hoping for something lighter.

A vehicle jumped the curb and struck three pedestrians on a sidewalk in Lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon, police said. There conditions were not immediately known but they were not believed to be life-threatening injuries.

Warner Bros. sure have reason enough to cheer. 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. 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 higher-ups are said to be upset with the performance of Justice League, with Variety reporting that it alarmed studio executives early on when they saw Zack Snyder's vision for the film. It's been the lowest performer among the five films in the DC Extended Universe, with "Wonder Woman" grossing $285.3 million in its first 19 days in June and "Suicide Squad" taking in $267.3 million in its first 19 days previous year.

The execs are said to be happy with how Justice League introduced both Ezra Miller's The Flash and Jason Momoa's Aquaman. "But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions".
