DCEU getting reworked following disappointment of Justice League

"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.

As of this writing, "Justice League" continues to be a box-office disappointment at the domestic box-office as, three weeks after the movie was released, it has only earned $200,264,849 based on the records of Box-Office Mojo. The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson. Warner Bros. released a statement to Variety and other media outlets saying Berg's role shift had been discussed within the studio well before the release of Justice League.

It's noted both Jon Berg and Geoff Johns were intimately involved in the production of Justice League.

Wagner is fairly clear about this in an interview with Inverse, responding to a question regarding whether or not scenes were shot involving the black suit with a simple answer: "There were".

The Canadian government has denied taking actions to prop up the industry to the detriment of the US industry. It has long argued Canadian lumber should be subject to a tariff to offset the subsidy.

Berg is said to be segueing into a role as producer for Warner Bros., working alongside The Lego Movie and It producer Roy Lee.

Justice League hasn't been performing well at its domestic box office, the high profile superhero blockbuster is now tracking $100 million behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and over $50 million behind the DCEU's lowest grosser, Man of Steel (via box office mojo). While hecklers and observers opine that the studio could have earned $6 billion had "Justice League" performed well, there is no denying that the movie has still made a contribution to its studio.

Time Warner is also said to be unhappy with those that made the decision to keep Zack Snyder on following Batman vs. Superman, and they are upset that each DCEU movie has made less money than the one that preceeded it, except for Wonder Woman.

It's not clear whether, or how, that move could affect in-development DC projects like Aquaman, Wonder Woman 2, and full-length features based on Captain Marvel (Shazam!) and The Flash.
