The DC Universe has taken its next huge “risky” step for its upcoming movie lineup. The studio has decided to end its long-standing relationship with producer Charles Roven, as he is “no longer producing certain DC movies.”
Roven has produced and will produce the Dark Knight trilogy, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman. While some would consider this a hasty move by the studio, according to IGN, DC has appointed Geoff Johns and Jon Berg to take charge of the upcoming movies.
Roven will still continue to work on Justice League: Part One; however, further titles like The Flash and Aquaman will be lead by Johns and Berg. Moreover, The Hollywood Reported said, “Warners now has sent Berg to also oversee the day-to-day production of that movie.”
THR also reported that “Talks are underway to have Roven … segue to a different role going forward, likely that of an executive producer who is not involved in day-to-day production. However, he potentially could continue to be a producer on some sequels to the movies he’s currently producing.”
Since Johns is onboard, we can expect Justice League: Part One to be more interesting, as it’s highly likely that he would involve his comic adaption into the movie.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice turned out to be a massive letdown from the studio. The movie was ripped apart by reviewers and could only provide mediocre satisfaction to fans. While DC still struggles to stand up against Marvel, its recent move could perhaps correct its flaws.
