DC Films is an American motion picture production company based at the Warner Bros. Pictures in Burbank, California and is a division of DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures, both wholly owned by Time Warner.
DC Films began prior to May 2016 as a production banner. In 2014, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara announced no fewer than 10 DC movies out to 2020. The DC Extended Universe operated under a "director-driven" mandate.
With a mixed response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the studio made moves to correct its direction. Warner Bros. Pictures reorganized in May 2016 to have genre responsible film executives. Thus DC Entertainment franchise films under Warner Bros. were placed under a newly created division, DC Films, created under Warner Bros. executive vice president Jon Berg and DC chief content officer Geoff Johns. This was done in the same vein as Marvel Studios in unifying DC-related film making under a single vision and clarifying the green lighting process. Johns also kept his existing role at DC Comics. However, the division's formation was not designed to override the "director-driven" mandate.
The Justice League film had one the biggest film budgets (nearly $300 million) but grossed about $96 million by November 20, 2017. A Washington Post analysis expect that there would be a course correction again with a possible change in leadership and move to a "director-driven" mandate. Forbes contributors felt the course correction is DC Films to give up on the shared universe while continuing with the Wonder Woman films and occasionally other films as Warner Bros. has other franchises, they can work with. Despite this, in December the studio re-iterated their current film slate for the unofficially titled DC Extended Universe. That same month, Warner Bros. announced that a new strategy and organization of DC Films would occur with Berg leaving his position as studio's co-president of production and co-chairman of DC Films to form a Warner Bros.-based production company involving a contractual deal with Roy Lee, the producer of The LEGO Movie and It. In January of 2018, it was announced that Warner Bros. executive Walter Hamada will be the new president of DC Films, and will oversee the movies in the DC Extended Universe. Hamada has been closely associated with New Line Cinema, and helped developed horror movies, such as It and The Conjuring film franchises.
