Geoff Johns Promises To Bring "Hope And Optimism" To The DC Films Universe

Newly appointed head of Warner Bros.' DC Films division Geoff Johns talks about his approach to these movies, seemingly indicating that we'll soon see a very different version of Superman in particular...

Following reports yesterday that Geoff Johns has been appointed as one of the heads of Warner Bros. DC Films division to take on a Kevin Feige type role, the comic book writer took part in an unrelated press event today and was asked by those in attendance about his newfound role alongside Jon Berg. According to Vulture, he refused to confirm the story, but said that "you can connect the dots."

While he wouldn't talk specifics in regards to his new role within DC Entertainment, Johns did discuss the direction he believes the company as a whole needs to head in, and one phrase he repeatedly said was that it needs, "hope and optimism." The Rebirth scribe obviously didn't disrespect Zack Snyder's work in any way, but it seems clear like things will now be heading in a different direction, especially after Johns offered up his take on how a character like Superman should be portrayed across all forms of media. "I think people make a mistake when they say, ‘Superman’s not relateable because he’s so powerful,’" he explained. "I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me? He’s a farmboy from Kansas who moves to the city and just wants to do the best he can with what he’s got.’ That’s the most relateable character in the world." That description of how Superman shouldn't be portrayed sounds pretty familiar, right? 
 
Taking a break from writing comics for the time being, Johns is clearly going to have his hands full with his DC Films commitments, and that may be no bad thing, especially when he has such a solid grasp on the best way to portray these heroes. "There’s a lot of emotional underpinning of the characters and the stories. It's not that people take it for granted. They’re just not as aware of it. But when it’s not there, you really feel that emptiness." What are you hoping for from the DC Films Universe?
