In March, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson took a leave of absence to focus on family-related problems, but today she announced that she will not be returning to Warner Bros., the company that she’s called home for the last 22 years.
“Warner Bros. has been my home for over 20 years with a wide variety of incredible professional experiences,” Nelson said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “The last nine — rebuilding and managing DC Entertainment — have been a particular highlight and privilege. With the support and talents of our staff and creators, I am proud to leave DC even stronger than when I joined it. I will miss everyone —particularly my executive management team — without whom none of our achievements could have been realized. And I am excited to take on my next professional adventure.”
Waner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara released a statement of his own, saying: “Diane has been a friend and colleague as well as a valued member of the Warner Bros. family for more than 20 years. Throughout her tenure, her leadership and contributions have helped shape the way the studio operates today, and we’re better for having had her on our team. While we’re sad she’ll be leaving us, we completely respect and support her decision. Whatever her next chapter holds, I know she’ll make it amazing.”
This is just another major change in leadership that Warner Bros. has seen this year. In January they restructured their DC movie business, as well as the movie studio itself.
