Current DC Entertainment publisher Jim Lee will assume the chief creative officer position that Geoff Johns has now left, taking on the duties while continuing to act as publisher with Dan DiDio. The two have jointly held the post since 2010. Johns will now become a content producer, launching his own production house, Mad Ghost Productions. So look forward to seeing that alongside many future DC Comics adaptations. Geoff Johns will next write and produce “Green Lantern Corps,” and fans will remember Geoff also co-produced 2011’s “Green Lantern.”
“I took on a role at DCE because I love the characters and this universe more than anything. But, I want to spend my days writing and on set. I’m thrilled to get back to a more hands-on creative role. It’s a dream job on dream projects, reaching even deeper into DC’s vast pantheon of characters,” said Johns in a statement.
“Geoff is a super talented writer and truly embedded in the DC Universe and its characters,” stated Emmerich. “We’re thrilled that he’s returning to his passion and his roots as a writer and producer. And, it’s even better that he’s staying in our Warner Bros. family. We look forward to working with him on ‘Green Lantern’ and other projects going forward.”
