If there’s an area where things have felt like they haven’t come together right for Warner Bros. in their attempts to bringing together the DC Comics characters to film, it’s that the DC Films “substudio” doesn’t have its version Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige. When working a cohesive universe you really need a central player to pull it all together and keep it on track with the right kind of knowledge. The DC films have been coming in with different approaches and didn’t exactly launch “right” in a way with Man of Steel and with the films not doing as well as they should be this point, and a few things still in the works, a new change is in the mix.

Walter Hamada, the production EVP for New Line within Warner Bros, has been brought in as president for the DC Films division. Hamada has overseen recent projects like It and The Conjuring franchise so there’s definitely some solid managing material in there in shepherding things right. This comes as co-president Jon Berg shifted out of there and Geoff Johns is apparently having less of a role as the other co-president.

According to Deadline, “Walter is creative, resourceful, and committed to excellence, and will bring those qualities to his oversight of our superhero films,” said WB Group president Toby Emmerich. “He’s a terrific production executive and served as an executive producer on two of the summer’s most popular films, New Line’s It and Annabelle: Creation. I’m confident Walter and Geoff, working with our filmmaking partners, will deliver films that will resonate with both broad global audiences as well as DC fanboys and fangirls. Walter’s a great addition to the Warner Bros Pictures team, and I look forward to working with him in his new post.”
