What should comes as no surprise, it's being reported Warner Bros.is giving the DCEU an overhaul following the disappointment of Justice League. Apparently Berg approached the studio six months ago about the idea, stating he always ultimately wanted to just be a producer at the studio, not overseeing an entire division. The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson.

According to reports, the movie has now earned an estimated total of $98.6 million in the said country, beating the record previously set by last year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which earned $95.7 in three weeks.


Meanwhile, there are now no plans for Zack Snyder to direct another DC movie, though it's possible he could helm one in the future as part of his production deal with Warner Bros.

Up next for the DCEU is James Wan's Aquaman for December 2018; Shazam! is in development for an April 2019 release, the Wonder Woman sequel has a November 2019 release, and a movie for The Flash (said to be Flashpoint) is in development.
