Geoff Johns Steps Down & Pens “Lantern”

Over six months on from the disappointment of “Justice League” at the global box-office, Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns is stepping down from the company.

Johns isn’t leaving DC entirely, the filmmaker is instead forming the production company Mad Ghost Productions which intends to produce a variety of DC comics, television series, and films which Johns will write.

According to THR, the first major film project for Johns will be as writer and producer of the upcoming “Green Lantern Corps” film. Johns had a credit on “Aquaman” and is said to be helping write the “Wonder Woman” sequel.

The announcement comes on the heels of the news Diane Nelson, head of DC and WB Consumer Products, will not be coming back after she took a leave of absence in March.
