Johns will stay as a chief creative officer with DC Entertainment, but his work on the films could be reduced to an advisory role.
"This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio", said Emmerich in a statement.
"Justice League" is predicted to end its run with an estimated total of 0 million. The report makes no mention of Johns being DC president, and says Johns still reports to DC president Diane Nelson. Though the over-$800-million worldwide gross for "Batman v Superman" cushioned the blow for Warner Bros., Variety reported that the studio was concerned by the dark tone of the "Justice League" script and was hoping for something lighter.
The corporate leaders at Time Warner are not too pleased with how Justice League performed at the box office, and as such are reportedly in favor of the reorganization.
Further changes include that it's likely Ben Affleck's last appearance as Batman will be in the upcoming movie for The Flash, with it also said Matt Reeves wants to cast the new Batman with fresh talent as well for his solo flick.

Its global total is still way down for DC Comics movies with a total of $569.2 million, but the rise in gross profits from China may suggest Asian markets are warming to Warner Brothers' superhero action flicks.
Emmerich is said to be considering folding the DC Films venture back into the main Warner Bros. film wing, and not with its own division.
Even though their latest release Justice League opened up to a lot of criticism and disappointing performance at the domestic box office, the film is gearing its way to the top overseas, especially in China.
Snyder also directed "Man of Steel" and was executive producer on DC movies "Suicide Squad" and "Wonder Woman".
As of this writing, "Justice League" continues to be a box-office disappointment at the domestic box-office as, three weeks after the movie was released, it has only earned $200,264,849 based on the records of Box-Office Mojo.
