That may sound crazy to you or I... but think about it. Snyder's original version might not have been good (or maybe it would have?)... but even BvS made more money than God. The only thing shareholders and investors are going to care about is "So who is it that made us shoot the movie a second time, double the budget... and STILL have it underperform lower than all other DCEU movies????"

If it was Geoff, then his head was on the chopping block.

I know one guy like this.
He is quite normal otherwise, but when someone dare to criticize "awesome vision of maestro Snyder" he goes of the rails and blames everything and everyone, from Marvel / Disney conspiracy to people being unprepared to understand "Snyder's majestic visionary genius".

Which why it is fun to poke him about that.

I love Snyder's style, if only his stories were a little bit tighter he'd be my perfect director. 300, Watchmen, that owl movie, BatmanVSuperman, Suckerpunch, MoS are all movies I loved or at least enjoyed. There's always a few things here and there that drop them from being all time favorites and it's usually story.

He definitely doesn't deserve the hate that he gets and I'd rather watch any of his movies than Whedon's Borefests.

Snyder's kind of the definition of a "visionary director." He just doesn't understand story, like Ridley Scott.

Snyder with a good script, you get the "Dawn of the Dead" remake, or "300," or "Watchmen." Great movies, IMHO.

Snyder writing his own stuff... you get "Sucker Punch." Or a bunch of "iconic" comic books spliced together to form BvS.

Snyder has a good eye for a good picture and special effects, but he absolutely sucks at everything else.
And ideal solution would have been Snyder on picture, someone else on dialogues and characters.

“I’m going to be hopefully delivering a script that Warner loves and DC likes and they want to make it,” Johns concluded, adding it’s “going to celebrate the mythology and reinvent it in a different way.”

In other words, it's almost 2019 and there's still no script and even if there is, maybe WB just passes on it. This is quite a promotion for Johns, all right.

Let's get it straight. So... Geoff Johns simultaneously "steps down" as both CCO and DC Entertainment president for the big opportunity to... eh, write a draft of "Green Lantern Corps" for WB that they have no obligation to humor?
