Producer Charles Roven Reveals the DC Brain Trust
The folks at Warner Bros. have a very different approach to superhero movies than Marvel.
“I think also very much involved in that brain trust is John Berg, who is the executive vice president at Warner Bros. I would say the Snyders, myself, John Berg, and Geoff Johns would be sort of that Brain Trust… I’m working with great people. They’re all really great people. And not that we don’t—there are many times we agree, and there’s many times we don’t agree [and] we work it out.”

“The other thing that I really love about what we’re doing is we’re also bringing in really talented other filmmakers and having them come in and create—I call it the sandbox. We’ve got this sandbox of the Justice League DC characters, and we are hoping to create—this series of movies that we’ve announced are somewhat interlinked. The characters move at a throughline that hopefully will take us all the way to Justice League 2, but they also can interact in the other films as well in some way.”

Ben Affleck Elevates ‘Justice League’ Presence; Becomes Exec Producer
Affleck is building toward a relaunch of the Batman franchise as a stand-alone.
Mike Fleming Jr wrote:EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros has made a subtle addition to the Justice League braintrust. Ben Affleck, already set to co-star in the film, has signed on to become its executive producer as well. In that role, he will work with director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio behind the scenes to make the film the best it can be. It seems like a smart move, given that Affleck is already on the premises to reprise his Batman/Bruce Wayne character, and because he’s as strong a storytelling presence as Warner Bros has on its lot. He showed that with his writing-directing efforts Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo, the latter of which won the Best Picture Oscar for Warner Bros and was scripted by Terrio, who also won an Academy Award for the film.

I’m told that Affleck is doing this to be supportive of Snyder, with whom he worked well on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which grossed $864 million worldwide despite not being beloved by the critics. Warner Bros is still figuring out its stylistic superhero mojo, and Affleck will help. Justice League is slotted for a November 17, 2017 release, and Affleck’s Batman is expected to be paired alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and likely Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.

Affleck, who followed his Batman turn by directing and starring in his scripted adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel Live By Night for an October 20, 2017 release by Warner Bros, is building toward a relaunch of the Batman franchise as a stand-alone. As Deadline revealed last Comic-Con, he has teamed with DC’s Geoff Johns to write the movie he’ll star in and direct.

Ben Affleck Is Now Executive Producer Of JUSTICE LEAGUE
The drama continues.
EVAN SAATHOFF wrote:Hold up, the red phone is ringing. Oh hey, it’s Devin Faraci, who has this to add:
My sources have told me that Affleck was incredibly unhappy about the reception of BvS. He felt humiliated after spending so much of the press tour saying how much better this film would be than Daredevil. On top of that his agent was furious when Kevin Tsujihara jumped the gun and announced him as the director of The Batman - there were still negotiations happening.

This move seems to help placate Affleck while also edging Zack Snyder out of a controlling central position in the DC Movieverse.

i think the writers are overcompensating. the character has been joked about so much that they felt like they needed to make him over-the-top badass.

There was a nice idea I read earlier that suggested:

What if his Kryptonian suit decayed when out of sunlight, just like his own powers would? So when he "comes back to life" his suit is monochrome. As his own powers return, the suit gradually returns to colour.

Comics Alliance:
DC Movie Producer’s Comments Illustrate What’s Wrong With the ‘Justice League’ Universe
Britt Hayes wrote:Although recent comments from WB execs and Ben Affleck imply that the studio has learned a few lessons from its mistakes, new comments from a top DC movies producer prove otherwise.

In a recent interview, Ben Affleck directly addressed the studio’s core problem when he said that he’s in no rush to make his solo Batman film — mostly because he thinks the “reverse-engineering” approach (rushing a project to meet a release date) is a bad one. But that’s been the DCEU approach from the get-go.

Today, THR published a lengthy interview with producer Charles Roven, who recently took his involvement with the DCEU down a notch. When asked about the franchise, Roven’s response is illuminating:

The studio made me the producer of all the DC movies, and they announced eight. When we finished the [timetable], we looked at each other and said, ‘This is incredibly ambitious, but we haven’t taken into consideration if something goes wrong.’ We also hadn’t decided where we were going to shoot those movies. As difficult as it was for me to commute from Toronto to London to Italy, it became really clear I couldn‘t do the job that I do as a producer [with Aquaman likely to shoot in Australia]. I’m for sure producing the sequels of the movies that I have made.

Whether or not Roven is aware that he’s acknowledging the DCEU’s problems, that’s exactly what he’s done. WB has been far too ambitious with its slate, and far too presumptuous about its audience. Instead of introducing heroes in standalone films that would gauge interest in further sequels and eventual crossover events, like Marvel, the DCEU has taken a completely backwards approach — without course-correcting, that damage becomes increasingly difficult to undo, and each film that doesn’t attempt to right the ship only adds to the problem.

Also telling is Roven’s response when asked if the upcoming DCEU films will have lower budgets, since Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman failed to meet box-office expectations:
Suicide Squad made almost $750 million. Batman v. Superman did $873 million. Those two movies were huge hits.

That’s…not an answer. But it is a hilarious way to deflect the question, which isn’t about whether or not those two films were successful, but whether they were successful enough to justify their budgets — and they weren’t. Not on a commercial level, and certainly not on a creative one.
