WB names new head of DC Films
Added: Fri, 5th Jan 2018 by Grissom

      WB has made some changes over at DC films and has named  Walter Hamada as the new head of DC Films. Former President, Jon Berg, stepped down this past December and WB was looking for someone to fill the slot. Recent rumours had Batman star Ben Afflck as assuming the head of DC Films, but these recent developments have debunked such claims. Geoff Johns still retains his job, but it is now described as an "advisory" role.

      President of WB said of Hamada: "Walter is creative, resourceful, and committed to excellence, and will bring those qualities to his oversight of our superhero films,” said Emmerich. “He’s a terrific production executive and served as an executive producer on two of the summer’s most popular films, New Line’s It and Annabelle: Creation. I’m confident Walter and Geoff, working with our filmmaking partners, will deliver films that will resonate with both broad global audiences as well as DC fanboys and fangirls. Walter’s a great addition to the Warner Bros Pictures team, and I look forward to working with him in his new post.” 

     Mr. hamada has worked closely with James Wan on The Conjouring films so it will be interesting to see if Hamada utilizes Wan for future DC projects, depending on how successful the underwater adventure film becomes.
