Huge news today as Geoff Johns has stepped down as DC Entertainment's Chief Content Officer and will instead take on a writing and producing role under a new banner. Find out more about his projects here.

It's been confirmed today that DC Entertainment President and CCO Geoff Johns is stepping down from that role in order to take on a writing/producing role with Warner Bros. and DC. The acclaimed writer will launch Mad Ghost Productions, a banner which will see him work on content for films, television, and comic books (an area he's been mostly absent from since being promoted to that role in 2016). 
 
Artist Jim Lee is taking over as Chief Creative Officer while still serving as DC Comics publisher alongside Dan DiDio. "I took on a role at DCE because I love the characters and this universe more than anything," Johns explained in a statement today. "But, I want to spend my days writing and on set.  I’m thrilled to get back to a more hands-on creative role.  It’s a dream job on dream projects, reaching even deeper into DC’s vast pantheon of characters." So, which projects will those be?
 
Well, he'll first pen the screenplay for Green Lantern Corps and will also serve as one of the long-delayed movie's producers. He's also written the "Doom Patrol" episode of Titans which is expected to launch a spinoff series for those characters on the DC Universe digital service. On the comic book side, he has a lot of exciting new projects in the works, including a new Shazam! series this fall. 

He's also set to pen Three Jokers, a title which is expected to resolve that big DC Rebirth mystery surrounding the Clown Prince of Crime. Johns
is also launching The Killing Zone, a new DC label which will put the spotlight on lesser known characters who haven't been given the spotlight for a while. Needless to say, he's going to be a busy man and it will be very interesting seeing how this all pans out.
