True, but the fact that it might not be HIS stories that get adapted into movies is probably enough to make his more ridiculous fanboys want to cry in a corner.

There's nothing to suggest that either.

I also doubt execs at WB give two shits about the sales of one comic enough to let a guy keep his very high ranking job. GJ won't be working on the maxi series for another year, I'd almost wager around half the series is already in the can.

In all reality though, say Doomsday Clock sells 100k one month and it makes $300k - $400k in sales. That's pocket change to an exec at WB. Even with consistent sales for all 12 issues it'd still only be a few million at best totaled up... which would STILL be chump change in the eyes of WB.

Yeah WB couldn't care less about comic book sales. Also Johns isn't being demoted so much as they're bringing someone else in, which strikes me as WB wrongly and worryingly panicking over JL's underperformance, which wasn't even really entirely Johns fault anyway, but hey that's a studio for you.

The difference between a producer and an adviser is that you have to do what a producer says and you don't have to do what an adviser says.

That's a very big difference.

Nothing about his role changed. The information is there, you just don't want to read it, it seems.

What they might do with the movies is to give Johns a credit as executive producer. That can mean whatever you want it to -- that the person really is in charge, or that he's just an adviser. Sometimes a star will be given that credit simply as a way of paying him more money.
