Warner Bros. are to make big changes to its DC Comics film department after the disappointment of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns will now co-run a dedicated film division with current Warner Bros. Pictures executive VP Jon Berg.

The reports says that the “course correction” is being made because of Batman v Superman’s below-expectations performance at the box-office.

The film did take in almost $900 million worldwide but that’s still lower than what was expected and has already been eclipsed by Captain America: Civil War. And it also never hit the heights of Fox’s R-rated Deadpool.

Geoff Johns served as executive producer on Batman v Superman. But will now team up with Jon Berg as producers on the Justice League films.

Berg’s bigger role in DC movies going forward will start with post-production on Suicide Squad as “the studio is working to smooth out the third act”

Berg will also co-write with Ben Affleck for the next Batman movie.
