Variety says that after a failure with " League of Justice " Head of Production Department DC Films John Berg is demoted to rank, and DC itself Films becomes part of Warner Bros and moves to the one same office. Say, played in independence and enough.
Why is that?
Several years ago, after a failure with "A person from Steel " , the leadership of Warner Bros gave carte blanche DC on creation of a separate film division. It was headed by John Berg and one of the main ideologists of DC In recent years, Jeff Jones (be sure to read his " Green Lantern " ). These two had to go the footsteps of Kevin Feigi and make your Marvel with total gloom and sad Batman.
Not happened. That's why Berg was fired, Jones will become just an expert in comics, DC return back under the wing of Warner Bros, and the fate of other films has not yet very clear. For example, Ben Affleck made it clear that he wants to get away from any mention of Batman. Therefore, after " Flashpoint " we are unlikely to see it. Yes, and new director of the solo album about long-eared Matt Reeves is also not off work with another actor. For example, by Jake Gyllenhaal.
A what's with "Justice League"?
Sadness. After the reshuffle, the budget of the film swelled to $ 300 million Plus the huge cost of marketing, which could make up a good half of the film budget. AND with all this for 3 weeks of world-wide movie about Superman, Batman, Flash and the rest collected only $ 570 million. This is the worst indicator among all the films of the expanded DC-car. In this case, the studio will receive only 50% of the this money - The second half is taken away by the cinemas. A this means that for almost a month " League of Justice " is not even repulsed its own budget. Analysts predict the " league " the final fees in $ 590 - $ 600 million Plus , something else will drop from sales at DVD and streamings.
