Following Warner’s announcement that Geoff John’s would from now on be spearheading the DCEU, word from the man himself confirms he’s working with Ben Affleck on the solo Batman film. DC’s CCO recently sat down with Comicbook.com to discuss his involvement with both Warner Bros and DC.
“My job is to help other Warner Brothers divisions work with DC. I work with Warner TV and producers to get these shows up and running, in particular with The Flash, where I co-created the show, wrote a few episodes, wrote the pilot episode. I work with other people, Ames Kirshen in games, the studios like Rocksteady and Netherrealm, go in there on character choices, story they’re going to do and brainstorm on that, try to keep it true to comics.”
The interesting bit comes when asked about what he tells his friends and family outside of the business when discussing his work. “I just tell them I write comics (laughs). I do get to say I’m working on Batman with Ben Affleck. That gets the Thanksgiving table excited, especially my brother.”
