The film was meant to be the studio's answer to Marvel's The Avengers, but as a comparable superhero pic Justice League has been grossing far less at the box office than WB had hoped, and reviews have been unkind. Berg is stepping down from his role to become a production partner with The Lego Movie and It producer Roy Lee.

Geoff Johns is expected to stay on as DC Entertainment's chief creative officer, with it said Johns' role going forward "may evolve, and could be more advisory in nature".

The Warner Bros. film executive in charge of production on the studio's DC superhero films is stepping down after the disappointment of the big-budget movie "Justice League", in the latest shake-up related to the blockbuster franchise.

"This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio", Emmerich said in a statement. The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson.

Variety reports that Emmerich will immediately look to hire a new executive to oversee the DCEU, and that he's considering integrating DC's film operations into the main studio. This is how the superhero properties are developed and overseen at Fox and Sony, whereas Marvel Studios has its own independent office despite reporting to Disney.

Variety reported Thursday that there were no immediate plans for Zack Snyder, director of numerous DC Comics titles for the studio including "Justice League", to direct another DC movie. After Justice League stumbled not only critically but, crucially, at the box office as well, Johns and Berg are reportedly out-and Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, et.al. are once again a group of heroes in search of a leader. The trade also said that executives were concerned with the choice of doing a CGI Steppenwolf as the villain. "We're thrilled that Jon is partnering with Roy and anticipate their company being a valuable source of movies for Warner Bros. and New Line". The studio is "still developing a standalone Flash feature". On a purely storytelling level, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and especially Suicide Squad were just ghastly and embarrassing.
