DC Studios finds not one but two Co-Chairs and CEOs in James Gunn and Peter Safran

DC Studios officially names James Gunn and Peter Safran as new CEOs and Co-Chairmen after looking for Walter Hamada’s replacement.

DC Studios

The announcement means Gunn and Safran are the new leaders overseeing all future DC production.

Their additional responsibilities include creating a 10-year roadmap for DC projects across film, television, and animation.

Gunn and Safran will ensure that every upcoming project falls under the same banner.

DC Extended Universe

The Batgirl movie was canceled in August while it was in post-production.

The decision came from the renewal of Warner Bros. Discovery for their essential IPs following the company merging.

The merger was the reason Walter Hamada stepped down as DC Films president.

James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new roles fill the void Hamada left.

James Gunn

Gunn moved from Marvel to DC and handled The Suicide Squad, earning critical acclaim and praise.

The film’s success led to the equally successful Peacemaker series on HBO Max.

Both projects achieved milestones that gave Peacemaker approval for a second season.

A spin-off series is also in development.

It revolves around Amanda Waller, with Viola Davis returning for the role.

James Gunn’s new role at DC Studios means he will oversee DC Films and pave the way for a more cohesive cinematic universe.

Peter Safran

Safran has been producing DC projects for several years now.

Two of his most significant contributions are Aquaman and Shazam!

Their success came at the box office as DC sought to distance itself from the Snyderverse.

Peter Safran produced The Suicide Squad and served as executive producer on Gunn’s Peacemaker series.

He is currently producing new projects like Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Blue Beetle, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

Gunn and Safran’s roles in DC Studios

Gunn and Safran will report directly to the president and CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, David Zaslav.

The two will also work closely with Mike De Luca and Pam Abdy, co-presidents and CEOs of Warner Bros. MovieGroup.

Zaslav looks forward to working with the duo and says:

“DC has among the most entertaining, powerful, and iconic characters in the world.”

“I am thrilled to have the singular and complementary talents of James and Peter joining our world-class team and overseeing the creative direction of the storied DC Universe.”

Zaslav praised their experience, deep ties to creative communities, and track record with fans.

He says their achievements helped them get their new positions.

Ezra Miller’s representative releases statement explaining his behavior

Ezra Miller, the actor behind the Flash and We Need to Talk About Kevin, has been in a downward spiral since 2020.

It started with video equipment from the actor who suffocated a woman before causing an uprising in Hawaii.

From there, they were in trouble because they were accused of grooming a child, showing violence against a woman and her child, keeping a woman and her three children in their farm, and breaking into a residence to steal alcohol recently.

While Miller was supposed to get papers at that time, the actor was not on the radar.

They recently announced that they were looking for treatment for “complex mental health problems.”

The statement

The representative of Ezra Miller contacted several media with a declaration with the registration:

“Having gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment.”

“I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior.”

“I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe, and productive stage of my life.”

Early efforts to get help

Miller’s decision falls on Monday after at least two months of people who encourage the actor to ask for help.

Among those who encouraged them are the agent of Miller long -term CAA Warner Bros and the nearby employees, friends and family.

Variety has speculated that the turning point came when the actor received a citation on August 7 to appear on September 26 in the Crime department of the Supreme Court of Vermont due to a burglary.

The Flash

Ezra Miller plays Barry Allen / The Flash for DC Batman against Superman: Dawn of Justice since 2016, and since then, they have played in cams for Suicide Squad, The Flash on CW and Peacemaker.

Though the Flash solo film is slated for next year, Miller’s antics ran into production difficulties.

However, despite the actor’s numerous altercations and actions in Hawaii, Iceland, Germany and the state of Green Mountain, the film was never seriously threatened.

Warner Bros executives knew they couldn’t release a $ 200 million movie without his star and spent weeks talking to Miller and their reps about a more “proactive” mental health strategy for them.

“This isn’t about business,” said one executive regarding the company’s influence and Miller’s situation.

“It’s about a human being who is clearly in pain.”
