Jon Berg’s the guy who was keeping an eye on the production of the DCEU on behalf of Warner Bros. And he’s been removed.
Jon Berg, co-president of production at Warner Bros. Pictures, will leave his post at the studio to become a producer with filmmaker Roy Lee, who has produced successful movies for the studio including “It” and “The Lego Movie.” Berg, who ran point on DC movies and was credited as a producer on “Justice League,” has been an executive at the studio for about a decade. Toby Emmerich, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said it was Berg’s decision to step down.
Yes, and it’s my decision to start yelling when I step on a Lego at 2 AM*. Look, I don’t want to add to Berg’s problems, but: it’s pretty obvious that the dude, at best, went quietly in exchange for a soft landing. I know that puff pieces are part of said soft landing, but (again): let’s not pretend that everything’s hunky-dory at the DCEU. It ain’t.
PS: If you want good DCEU movies, Warner Bros, figure out what people want to see. Here, I’ll help you. They want to see Wonder Woman… just the way you got her, you’re golden, don’t worry about it; they actually kind of want to see the Affleck Batman who was the World’s Greatest Goram Detective, so more of that; and They want to see. Truth. Justice. And The. AMERICAN. Way.
The other three were fine. Cyborg needs more to do, though. Hey! Give him a bunch of other youngsters to hang out with!
