DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns took to Twitter to express pride in “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins in wake of an anonymous open letter claiming trouble behind the scenes of Warner Bros.’ next big superhero release.

The tweet should be reassurance to anyone concerned about complaints in the letter targeting Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara when it was posted Pajiba.com. As TheWrap reported Monday, fans should not worry about the future of DC Films, despite poor reception to both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad, which showed steep box office drops in their second weekend of release.

With “Wonder Woman” currently undergoing post-production, “Justice League” midway through production, “The Flash” actively casting, and the “Batman” standalone film currently being written, the studio seems to have a firm grasp at steering the ship into the right direction.

One of the most critical, if not the most important component to this course correction is Johns, who also serves as the chief creative officer of DC Comics, along with longtime studio executive Jon Berg.

The Pajiba debacle left many fanboys curious after the anonymous writer “Gracie Law” claimed that “Wonder Woman” is a mess. “Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer,” the letter reads. “People inside are already confirming it’s another mess. It is almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes, over and over.”

Jenkins, however, publicly dismissed the anonymous writer’s assertions in a series of tweets.

Individuals with knowledge of the situation also told TheWrap that they are not aware of any problems with “Wonder Woman.”
