DC Entertainment veteran Gregory Noveck is ankling from his slot as senior VP of creative affairs to return to producing, according to a DC spokesman.
Noveck’s departure comes six months after Warner Bros. unveiled a new management team including Image Comics co-founder Jim Lee and DC Universe editor Dan DiDio.
The spokesman said Friday that Noveck will be moving out of his job during the next three months. He was hired six years ago by president/publisher Paul Levitz to exploit the DC library, including direct-to-video animation, “Secret Origin: The Story Of DC Comics documentary” and the upcoming Summit actioner “Red,” which he exec produced.
Warner Bros. took control of DC Comics a year ago and rebranded it DC Entertainment, tapping Warner Bros. vet Diane Nelson as president.
During his tenure at DC, Noveck was also involved in the development of “Watchmen” and the upcoming “Green Lantern,” which is wrapping production in New Orleans with Martin Campbell directing.
