Diane Nelson has been with working as the head of DC Entertainment with Warner Bros for 22-years, but after a leave of absence for months, Nelson revels that she will no longer be working with Warner Bros.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nelson said in a statement:
Warner Bros. has been my home for over 20 years with a wide variety of incredible professional experiences… The last nine — rebuilding and managing DC Entertainment — have been a particular highlight and privilege. With the support and talents of our staff and creators, I am proud to leave DC even stronger than when I joined it. I will miss everyone —particularly my executive management team — without whom none of our achievements could have been realized. And I am excited to take on my next professional adventure.
In the span of her career with Warner Bros, Nelson has facilitated the communication between WB and several DC divisions particularly with the television department. Nelson helped bring to life shows like Arrow, Supergirl, and Black Lightning, and it was also under her watch that Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman eventually made it to the big screen.
Before Nelson was onboard, the DC properties were said to have having a hard time moving forward as several divisions wanted to take initiative with specific characters. It’s thanks to her that we get this brand synergy among the different DC departments that work with Warner Bros.
WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara also had this to say about Nelson leaving:
Diane has been a friend and colleague as well as a valued member of the Warner Bros. family for more than 20 years… Throughout her tenure, her leadership and contributions have helped shape the way the studio operates today, and we’re better for having had her on our team. While we’re sad she’ll be leaving us, we completely respect and support her decision. Whatever her next chapter holds, I know she’ll make it amazing.
