Hamada

President, Film Production

Heading up all things DC for Warner Bros., Hamada has reminded the world that Marvel isn’t the only comic-book game in town by putting superheroes and supervillains from a previously interconnected universe into standalone movies, including R-rated sensation “The Joker,” starring Joaquin Phoenix, and last year’s “Aquaman,” which earned more than $1.48 billion worldwide and became the highest-grossing DC movie of all time. He also teamed with Peter Safran and James Wan (creative team behind the 2013 hit “The Conjuring,” which Hamada exec produced) to shine a spotlight on a lesser-known DC character with “Shazam!” which reeled in more than $364 million worldwide. Hamada’s current slate includes the franchise reboot “The Batman,” with Robert Pattinson and Jonah Hill, and James Gunn’s sequel to “Suicide Squad.”
