Apparently, DC Entertainment has a new president.  That would be none other than DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Office Geoff Johns.  He will still report to President Diane Nelson.

Johns role with DC has been steadily increasing in the recent past, having taken on roles not only with comic books but in the cinematic department as well.  He is currently helping on the Justice League movie, along with John Berg, to create a film that fan will love.  We also have San Diego Comic Con as a very recent memory, having just wrapped up last weekend and with it a whole slew of releases and teasers and trailers that were received with overwhelming reception by fans and a lot of that is due to the work Johns has done with the cinematic side of the house.  With this in mind, it is not out of the ordinary that a promotion would come at this time.
