DC and Warner Bros have made some behind the scenes changes which could affect the future films

In one of many reorganizations of the executives handling its DC movies, Warner Bros has promoted long-time DC writer, Geoff Johns, to the post of president of DC Entertainment.

The promotion of Johns to the presidency of DC Entertainment actually took place two months ago following the poor response to Dawn of Justice but the studio had not confirmed the move until last week after Comic Con.

Johns, who has worked for DC since 2000, has a strong background with its characters, writing popular runs for Green Lantern, Aquaman, The Flash, and Superman, amongst others.

He Became Cheif Creative officer at DC comics in 2010 and still continues to write some of it's flagship titles.

As Chief Creative Officer, he lead the New 52 reboot programme and was one of the principle players who brought Arrow and The Flash to the small screen in 2012 and 2014, even penning some episodes.

The introduction of John's to this role has got critics and fans excited as they hope a writer who understands the characters and universe will help steer the DCCU in a better direction.
