Warners/DC has a new boss looking after the cinematic universe

January 4th, 2018 by Marc Comments

It looks like there’s a new hierarchy at Warner Bros’ DC film operations.

it seems that Walter Hamada, a production executive at New Line, a division of Warner Bros, who saw such movies as “It,” “The Gallows,” and “The Conjuring” get to the big screen is the man now overseeing the DC Movies line-up.

Hamada has a close working relationship with Aquaman director James Wan who previously worked on the Conjuring and Annabelle movie franchises – so we’re guessing we may see Wan move forward an take a more prominent role in the DC Cinematic Universe down the line.

Geoff Johns will remain as a president and chief creative officer who will work on the cinematic, television and comic book worlds and will “work closely” with Hamada.

Toby Emmerich, wPresident and chief content officer at Warners had this to say: “Walter is creative, resourceful, and committed to excellence, and will bring those qualities to his oversight of our superhero films.

“I’m confident Walter and Geoff, working with our filmmaking partners, will deliver films that will resonate with both broad global audiences as well as DC fanboys and fangirls.”


Wait, did he us call us fanboys and fangirls?! As they say on social media: lol.

This is a positive movie for Warners/DC as Hamada played a big role in saving New Line Cinema when it was in serious trouble. And we all know that Johns knows his DC comic book lore, so we’re confident that great things lie ahead.

That said, we are fans of what has come from the DC Cinematic Universe so far, so…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
