Geoff Johns Briefly Comments On What's Guiding The DCEU Moving Forward

Wonder Woman was the first film released under the watch of DC Film co-chairs Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. A universal success, Johns comments on what's governing the DCEU moving forward.

Wonder Woman's current mainstream media love affair marks the first DCEU film that's both a critical and commercial success. The Wrap has a breakdown of what changes took place in the wake of Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman's poor film critic and audience review scores in addition to a statement from Geoff Johns on the approach WB is taking under his and Jon Berg's direction.

 "Get to the essence of the character and make the movies fun. Just make sure that the characters are the characters with heart, humor, hope, heroics, and optimism at the base," said Johns at the Wonder Woman premiere.  

The Wrap's report adds that Johns and Berg were placed in charge of the DCEU following the beating the aforementioned Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman took at the hands of film critics.  It's that negative word-of-mouth which greatly contributed to sizable second-week box office drops.  

Obviously some course correction was needed and WB Chairman Kevin Tsujihara, DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson and (since departed) Creative Development President Greg Silverman turned to Johns and Berg.  

As DC Films are currently structured: Johns reports to Nelson while Berg keeps Toby Emmerich, WB's newly hired Chief Content Officer, abreast of future plans and development.  Under development in this new ethos of "hope and optimism" are The Flash, which reportedly just had a new script turned in by Joby Harold.  

There's also the inevitable Wonder Woman sequel, Matt Reeve's The Batman and even the Justice League reshoots currently filming. If there was ever a time to feel bullish about the future of the DCEU, it's certainly now.
