Here’s The New Guy In Charge Of Warner Bros.’ DC Superhero Films

Warner Bros. wanted the Justice League movie to be a slam dunk. When that didn’t happen, the Hollywood studio shook up the leadership in charge of bringing DC’s superheroes to the silver screen. A new report at Variety names producer Walter Hamada as the incoming executive who’ll be running the DC movie universe.

Hamada has served as executive producer on It, as well as the Conjuring and Annabelle horror franchises and many other movies, although none of them feature superheroes. However, the Variety article features quotes from a statement by WB exec Toby Emmerich, which makes it seem like longtime comics writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is still in the mix:

Walter is creative, resourceful, and committed to excellence, and will bring those qualities to his oversight of our superhero films.

I’m confident Walter and Geoff, working with our filmmaking partners, will deliver films that will resonate with both broad global audiences as well as DC fanboys and fangirls.

Warner Bros. has a lot of DC Comics fare in the pipeline at various stages of production. It remains to be seen if they will all come to fruition under Hamada – and if audiences will see any change in sensibility or tone from future DCEU films.
