A Disastrous Justice League Sends Warner Bros

'Justice League' Cinematographer Says Black Superman Costume Exists, Was Cut From Film

'Justice League' Cinematographer Says Black Superman Costume Exists, Was Cut From Film

"Justice League" was a letdown after Warner turned out a hit in June with "Wonder Woman", which generated $822 million worldwide, with about half coming from the US and Canada. Warner Bros.is reportedly planning to either announce a replacement for Johns and Berg as early as January, or simply absorb the leadership of DC Films into the studio's larger filmmaking operation.

Johns will remain chief creative officer for DC, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. Warner Bros.is on the hunt to replace Berg and is expected to tap someone new to run point on the DC Films sector to aid Johns in his work. 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.

"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", Emmerich said in a statement.

Naturally, hearing this from Hecker will only increase fans' desires for a Snyder cut, which could result in Warner Bros. putting out a new version of the film down the line. Marvel, which is owned by Disney, does operate its comic book film division autonomously, but other studios, such as Fox and Sony, produce their superhero films under the studio's banner. Director Zack Snyder stepped down during production because of the death of his daughter.

What should comes as no surprise, it's being reported Warner Bros.is giving the DCEU an overhaul following the disappointment of Justice League.

Further changes include that it's likely Ben Affleck's last appearance as Batman will be in the upcoming movie for The Flash, with it also said Matt Reeves wants to cast the new Batman with fresh talent as well for his solo flick. Time Warner is said to be frustrated that Warner Bros. leaders continued to bring the director back, especially after "Batman v Superman" was excoriated by critics even though it made money. A solo "Aquaman" is due out in 2018 and Warners is still developing a standalone Flash adventure.
