In addition to his new role as President, Johns will continue to guide film and television adaptations of Warner Bros.' DC Comics-based intellectual property as CCO. Johns will answer to Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment, President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and President and Chief Content Officer of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. CBR can confirm that DC Comics Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee will both continue to report to Nelson.
According the The Hollywood Reporter, Johns was given the new title in May, when he was promoted to head of DC Films with Jon Berg. The promotion was reportedly a reaction to the lukewarm response of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
In addition to serving as DC Entertainment President & Chief Creative Officer and writing comics for the publisher, Johns contributed to the "Wonder Woman" script, and is currently writing the Ben Affleck "Batman" movie.
CBR has independently confirmed Johns' new position as President & Chief Creative Officer at DC Entertainment.
