ComicBook.com recently had an interview where they discussed Geoff Johns’s job at Warner Brothers. Geoff made his position fairly clear in the interview by stating that he is simply a liaison for Warner Brothers and DC. You may recognize his name as he is the co-creator for the television series The Flash. He has also confirmed that he is working on the solo Batman film with Ben Affleck.
I do get to say I’m working on ‘Batman’ with Ben Affleck. That gets the Thanksgiving table excited, especially my brother.
Geoff has probably one of the coolest jobs in the fact that he gets to hang out and meet all kinds of people to include Ames Kirshen, studios like Rocksteady and Netherrealm, to which he helps brain storm with them and try to keep them as true to the comics as possible. However, Geoff couldn’t confirm reports of him having a bigger role at Warner Brothers. Plus Jon Berg is taking charge of the DC Films division since Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice failed to meet the studio’s financial and critical expectations. This new position for Jon Berg came from his involvement for the Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, as well as the Justice League films. Which we are super excited to see all of these films starting with Suicide Squad which is coming to theaters August 5th.
