Warner reportedly planning to either announce a replacement for Johns and Berg as early as January, or simply absorb the leadership of DC Films into the studio's larger filmmaking operation.

Standing president and chief creative officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns, who has teamed up with Berg and has had a hand in the creative direction of many DC movies, will remain in his position. Berg will instead be working alongside producer Roy Lee of films like The Lego Movie and It. Berg essentially decamped for the film's London set, and both men have full producer credits on the picture, which would likely not be the case on future movies.

With scenes of Henry Cavill's Superman wearing a black costume left on the cutting room floor, we can only hope that Warner Bros. includes the deleted scenes on the Justice League Blu-ray.

"This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio", Emmerich said in a statement. "We're thrilled that Jon is partnering with Roy and anticipate their company being a valuable source of movies for Warner Bros. and New Line". This would mean that the cinematic side of the DCEU would be housed under the same division as the rest of the studios' films, and DC would no longer have a separate building on the Warner Bros. lot. Aside from this year's global hit "Wonder Woman", most of the films have been panned by critics. Marvel, which is owned by Disney, does operate its comic book film division autonomously, but other studios, such as Fox and Sony, produce their superhero films under the studio's banner.

What should comes as no surprise, it's being reported Warner giving the DCEU an overhaul following the disappointment of Justice League.

The only positives you can take from Variety's report is that it's believed Warner Bros. are happy to continue with the Flashpoint movie, stating that it could well be Ben Affleck's final outing as the Dark Knight, what with Matt Reeves wanting to measure up someone else for the cape and cowl for his standalone Batman movie. So clearly, with the right people behind and in front of the camera, it's possible that Warner Bros. could give adult audiences something a little more visceral to chew on.
