After the unsatisfactory results of ‘ Justice League ‘ at the box office, Warner Bros. is carrying out a restructuring within its DC division. Jon Berg and Geoff Johns , currently in charge of the DC films, will be replaced by Walter Hamada , the well-known producer of the studio’s outstanding horror films such as ‘ It ‘, ‘ Warren Record ‘ or ‘ Never turn off the light ‘.
Walter Hamada joins the DC Universe
Hamada, after having achieved numerous successes within the horror genre working as a producer in New Line Cinema, will be in charge from now on to supervise all the films produced within DC , working together with Geoff Johns, who will continue within the division as creative director of DC Entertaiment as well as consultant for film projects at Warner Bros.
Hamada was already working in DC in the development of ‘ Shazam ‘ , one of the upcoming films of the company that was being developed by New Line Cinema, another of the divisions of the Time Warner group. Everything indicates that Hamada’s work in this film has been the trigger for Warner’s decision to put him at the head of the extended DC Universe .
In a statement sent to the media, Toby Emmerich, president of Warner Bros, has offered the following words about Walter Hamada: “Walter is creative, witty and his commitment is excellent and will bring those qualities to supervise our superhero films . “ For his part, Geoff Johns, has also welcomed DC through his Twitter account:
“Welcome aboard Walter! Nice to work with you! It’s been an explosion in ‘Shazam!’ Now it’s for the rest of DC! (And make an account on Twitter!)”
The next DC movies
After ‘League of Justice’, this 2018 we will reach theaters the first solo movie of ‘ Aquaman ‘, directed by James Wan , while soon to be released the sequels of ‘ Wonder Woman ‘ and ‘ Suicide Squad ‘ as well like ‘ Flashpoint ‘, ‘ The League of Dark Justice ‘, ‘Shazam,’ Batgirl ‘,’ The Batman ‘or’ Green Lantern Corps ‘. However, after this restructuring suffered in DC with the incorporation of Walter Hamada, it is possible that the company’s plans may be modified again.
