Just over a year after joining from Marvel Studios, Dan Evans has a new job and enlarged portfolio with DC Entertainment. After overseeing the Warner Bros.-owned comic giant’s TV slate of Arrow, Gotham, Supergirl, Lucifer and more as Creative Director, Evans has been promoted to VP, Creative Affairs. He will report directly to Geoff Johns, DC’s Chief Creative Officer.
“I’ve known Dan for years. His passion for DC and his creative strengths and experience make him a stellar leader within my Creative Affairs Department,” said Johns Thursday in a statement. “It’s great to have him assume this new role to help me manage the tremendous DC slate across the Studio.”
In his new gig, the ex-Nickelodeon Animation exec will now handle and review creative content for all DC media that are in production with WB, including TV, film, animation and games. Evan’s focus is to ensure that the use of the DC characters and their stories stay true to the core values of the franchises, the company says.
A manager of acquisitions at the WB TV Network back in the late 1990s, Evans worked at Fox Kids TV and was a Governor, Children’s programming for the TV Academy from 2010 to late 2014.
