After the departure of Jon Berg as Dc president last year, there were reports that Warner Bros were looking for a new replacement.
Walter Hamada, an executive at Warner Bros.’ sister company New Line who overlooked smash hits like IT and The Conjuring is now president of DC Films. He will work closely with Geoff Johns to get DC movies back on track.
A statement from Toby Emmerich, WB President:
“Walter is creative, resourceful, and committed to excellence, and will bring those qualities to his oversight of our superhero films,” “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.”
