Earlier today Bleeding Cool ran the following story about Geoff Johns being recently promoted to President of DC Entertainment as well as Chief Creative Officer…
Apparently, this promotion happened a few months ago when his responsibilities were extended to co-running the DC film slate with Warner Bros studio’s Jon Berg, during the Batman V Superman fallout.
They just didn’t think to tell anyone.
He’s still listed as Chief Creative Officer on DC Comics’ indicia, including comic books out tomorrow
You can see the current movie direction for Justice League and Wonder Woman as seen at San Diego Comic-Con as directly down to Geoff Johns, and his promotion from a mere CCO to P&CCO reflects this.
Although DC Entertainment declined to comment for this story when pressed, I was able to confirm the promotion through my own sourcing and it is indeed true!
Geoff Johns is not only Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment but President as well.
It’s the smart move on Warners part. You can see Geoff Johns fingerprints all over the upcoming DC Films slate. Geoff Johns has complete creative control on the upcoming standalone Batman film with director Ben Affleck who recently made comments to DC All Access about working with Johns.
Geoff Johns is a brilliant guy. I consider him to be the most valued resource on all things comic book, and every time I like something in the comic I always mention it he’s like oh yeah I wrote that. Now I just think he’s bulls******* me and he says he wrote everything. You know he and I are working together on something and I really am excited about it, and I love him, he’s the best.
John also has screenplay credit on the upcoming Wonder Woman and co-wrote the treatment for Aquaman with James Wan. Will Beall was recently hired to script Aquaman based off Johns & Wan’s treatment. As you can see, the Justice League is indeed in good hands.
