Geoff Johns Clarifies His Position at Warner Bros. & on Ben Affleck’s Solo “Batman” Film

DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns will continue to play a big role in Warner Bros.’ DC division. During an interview with ComicBook.com, he discussed his job at Warner Bros. and confirmed that he is working on the studio’s solo “Batman” film with Ben Affleck.

“My job is to help other Warner Brothers divisions work with DC,” Johns explained. “I work with Warner TV and producers to get these shows up and running, in particular with ‘The Flash,’ where I co-created the show, wrote a few episodes, wrote the pilot episode.”

“I work with other people, Ames Kirshen in games, the studios like Rocksteady and Netherrealm, go in there on character choices, story they’re going to do and brainstorm on that, try to keep it true to comics,” he continued.

“I do get to say I’m working on ‘Batman’ with Ben Affleck,” he added. “That gets the Thanksgiving table excited, especially my brother.”

However, he could not confirm reports that he now has a larger role at the studio, despite earlier rumors that claimed Warner Bros. had appointed him and Jon Berg to take charge of the DC Films division after “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” failed to meet the studio’s financial and critical expectations.

“Suicide Squad,” the next DC Films movie, hits theaters on August 5.
