Hamada

Hamada scored a vote of confidence from his WarnerMedia bosses in January 2021, when they renewed his contract as DC Films boss through 2023. It came after Hamada had been cleared of accu­sations by Ray Fisher that the exec had interfered with the studio’s investigation of the actor’s allegations of misconduct by director Joss Whedon during the making of “Justice League.” As EVP of production for the studio’s New Line Cinema division, Hamada oversaw “The Conjuring” horror franchise and the massively successful 2017 Stephen King adaptation “It.” Hamada comes into 2022 with high expectations for a slate stocked with beloved DC characters via films like “The Batman,” “Black Adam,” “The Flash,” an “Aquaman” sequel and “Batgirl,” the last of which will stream on HBO Max.
