Johns has signed an exclusive writer/producer deal with Warner Bros. and DC, and as a result will leave his current job as President and Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment. "It's a dream job on dream projects, reaching even deeper into DC's vast pantheon of characters". THR says he "also wrote the Titans episode "Doom Patrol" that it is spinning out into its own 13-episode original series for the digital service".

One of Johns' first projects will be none other than the previously-mentioned Green Lantern Corps.

Geoff Johns is already quite busy as he's working as a writer and producer on the Wonder Woman sequel. In January, Warner Bros., DC's corporate sibling, promoted Walter Hamada to oversee its comic book movies. Following the mammoth failure that is the Green Lantern film (which was supposed to be the film that kickstarted the DC film universe), the studio knew they'd have to distance itself from that film in order to make it work. Additionally, he co-wrote and executive produced "Aquaman", which releases worldwide December 21, and is writing and executive producing the second installment of the "Wonder Woman" franchise with director Patty Jenkins, releasing in November 2019.

Jim Lee is replacing Geoff Johns as the chief creative officer of DC Entertainment while continuing in his role as publisher alongside Dan DiDio.

Johns also commented on the move in a press release, as well as on Twitter. These are tumultuous times, and it'll be interesting to see if the combination of Lee being in a new position and Johns taking a more directly creative role will be able to potentially right the ship of DC Films in the years to come. He has also been crucial in helping build the DC television empire and co-developed The CW's most successful superhero show, "The Flash".

His publishing projects will include a new pop-up slate of comic books under the banner of "The Killing Zone" focusing on new and lesser known DC characters and titles. Johns will also be writing a Shazam! comic book series scheduled to be out in the fall. In addition, he will continue to write the commercial and critical hit "Doomsday Clock", a comic book series illustrated by Gary Frank that collides the DC universe with the Watchmen universe, as well as the upcoming "Three Jokers", illustrated by Jason Fabok. Pictures Group. "We're thrilled that he's returning to his passion and his roots as a writer and producer". But it sounds like Johns was itching to get back to being a pure creative, and in addition to his movie projects, he has even more DC projects in the works.

Stay tuned for more details on the move and the future of DC Entertainment.
