James Gunn and Peter Safran have both been appointed in major roles at Warner Bros. to oversee DC Studios.
The former will lead DC Stuos from a creative standpoint, while Safran will focus on the business side of things.
Gunn has actually worked for both Marvel and DC, having helmed The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise for Marvel and The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker (as executive producer) for DC.
Following the departure of previous executive Walter Hamada last week, the pair have been given these new, vital roles.
"We're honored to be the stewards of these DC characters we've loved since we were children," Gunn and Safran said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
"We look forward to collaborating with the most talented writers, directors, and actors in the world to create an integrated, multilayered universe that still allows for the individual expression of the artists involved.
"Our commitment to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn, and the rest of the DC stable of characters is only equaled by our commitment to the wonder of human possibility these characters represent.
"We're excited to invigorate the theatrical experience around the world as we tell some of the biggest, most beautiful, and grandest stories ever told."
Nothing will impact Gunn's work on Guardians of the Galaxy volume 3, but after production on that is completed it is believed that he will work exclusively with DC.
