The brief column addresses only DC-based films, and mentions speculation about Greg Silverman, who was re-signed in January to a multi-year contract as the studio's president of creative development and worldwide production, and Sue Kroll, the president of worldwide distribution whose role expanded last year to include North America.
The rumor surfaces less than three weeks after a report that Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment's chief creative officer, and Jon Berg, Warner Bros.' executive vice president of creative development and production, have been placed in charge of the DC Films division. Johns has declined to confirm the report.
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has grossed $329.6 million in North America, and nearly $872 million worldwide, which according to analysts is more than enough for Warner Bros. to recoup its investment. However, the widely negative reviews combined with the film's failure to cross $1 billion at the global box office have led "Batman v Superman" to be branded as a disappointment for the studio.
