Diane Nelson is no more the president of DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, the company announced on Wednesday. Nelson, who was on leave since March due to family-related problems, will not be returning to her post. As per an insider, the decision by Nelson of not resuming her post is to be of her own. The insider said that she was not forced to leave the job.
Before Nelson made her exit, she was considered as one of the most prominent and powerful female executives on the Warner Bros as well as in Hollywood. She was seen to be sharing a good bond with Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO, Kevin Tsujihara.
Tsujihara officially made the announcement companywide by writing a letter that read, “Diane has been a friend and colleague as well as a valued member of the Warner Bros. family for more than 20 years. 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.”
In the year 2009, Nelson was named as the head of DC, where she played a huge role looking after the development of its movie, television and video games on the same page with the Warners. Nelson garnered her biggest success in the television division, by launching a range of impressive and hit shows such as ‘Arrow,’ ‘Supergirl’ and ‘The Flash.’ Warner Bros.’s DC movies have received mixed box office performance. However, under Nelson’s watch, ‘Wonder Woman’ became a critical as well as the commercial winner at the box office, but movies like “Justice League” made it big at the box office.
As per Warner Bros, the DC’s executive management team will soon report to Thomas Gewecke, the Chief Digital Officer until Nelson’s replacement is figured out.
