Along with reportedly giving DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns a larger role in DC Films, Warner Bros. is shuffling Charles Roven, the producer of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, into a less active role with future films.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Roven, who produced BvS, as well as Suicide Squad and next year's Wonder Woman, will take a less hands on role with future DC movies, possibly serving as executive producer. The report posits he may retain his "producer" title for future sequels to films which he has already produced.
"Roven is a key member of not only the DC slate but of the Warner Bros. family," an unnamed WB rep reportedly said, with the Hollywood trade citing several other sources as saying Roven will be shuffled into a different role. THR blames the poor critical reception and financial underperformance of Batman v Superman, which fell short of WB's projections on both counts, as a motivator for Roven's changing role.
