Shock news from the world of DC Entertainment today. Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has announced that he will be stepping down from his role. This comes in the wake of the announcement that Diane Nelson will be stepping away from the company after over 20 years.

In a statement Johns said:

“I took on a role at DCE because I love the characters and this universe more than anything. But, I want to spend my days writing and on set.  I’m thrilled to get back to a more hands-on creative role.  It’s a dream job on dream projects, reaching even deeper into DC’s vast pantheon of characters.”

Johns will now take up a writing/producing role at Warner Bros. Under the banner of Mad Ghost Productions the acclaimed writer will launch work on content for films, television, and comic books.

The latest of those projects… Green Lantern Corps.

The long gestating film will now move in to a more active phase of development. One the newly launched website for Mad Ghost Productions we get our first idea which characters the movie will focus on:

“[One] of DC Comics’ greatest Super Hero universes, the film will feature Hal Jordan and John Stewart…”

He’s also set to pen Three Jokers, a title which is will seek to resolve that big DC Rebirth mystery surrounding the Clown Prince of Crime. Johns is also launching The Killing Zone, a new DC label spotlighting lesser known characters.

Best of luck in your new role Geoff!
