Warner Bros. to restructure DC Films after Justice League disappointment

What should comes as no surprise, it's being reported Warner Bros.is giving the DCEU an overhaul following the disappointment of Justice League. Johns will stay as a chief creative officer with DC Entertainment, but his work on the films could be reduced to an advisory role.

According to a report on Variety, Jon Berg is being ousted from his position as head of DC Films and will instead be made a production partner with Roy Lee.

The article goes on to suggest other contributing factors towards the reshuffle, and that in all likelihood Zack Snyder will not direct another DC movie. "The cool part is that on many of these films the studio releases the Director's Cut with a lot of that material put back in the film for the DVD release, so at least most of the sounds we create will be used one way or another".

Bettman says National Hockey League will consider Seattle expansion bid
The NHL Board of Governors, meeting in Florida on Thursday, voted to accept an application for an expansion team in Seattle . The Seattle group includes Jerry Bruckheimer, a Hollywood producer, and David Bonderman, a private equity CEO.

I don't imagine an extended edition is going to differ greatly from the theatrical cut, because, as I stated above, paying for visual effects work is extremely expensive, and WB has already dropped a rumored $300 million on Justice League as it is. Sources say Emmerich is considering further integrating DC Films into the main movie arm of Warner Bros., which would bring the studio's DC movie division under the same roof.

It also notes, as an aside, that there are now no plans for Zack Snyder to direct another DC movie. Well, Marvel's Avengers might end up grossing more domestically ($623 million) than Justice League does worldwide - and worldwide Marvel's Avengers grossed an incredible $1.5 billion.

Berg is credited as an exec producer on hit Wonder Woman, which has pulled in over $800 million at the box office, as well as the upcoming Aquaman standalone. So while Snyder maintains a production deal with the studio as he develops The Last Photograph, I wouldn't necessarily expect him to return to the DCEU anytime soon.

Steam Announces It Will No Longer Support Bitcoin
Bitstamp, one of the most established exchanges for cryptocurrency, announced that it would trade Bitcoin Cash in November . The value has recently become very unstable and has been known to drop in value by as much as 25% over just a few days.

There looks to be major shifts at Warner Bros. with its DC Comics movies, and not even its top creatives are safe.

Snyder also directed "Man of Steel" and was executive producer on DC movies "Suicide Squad" and "Wonder Woman".

While one might assume that Justice League practically forced Toby Emmerich to take action, the president of Warner Bros.

New Portal Game Unveiled
We were expecting to hear something about this on Thursday night (late Friday here in the UK) during the Game Awards. Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20 for PC, MacOS and Linux as well as smartphones.

As far as changes to the cast, Ben Affleck is now expected to appear as Batman in "The Flash" movie alongside Ezra Miller but all signs are pointing towards director Matt Reeves going with a younger star to play the role in his movie "The Batman".
