Going from holding two well-paid positions to writing what's called a spec script at no guaranteed pay is not a promotion. But Hollywood tends to portray moves like this as positive, so that the person can save face and not suffer damage to his long-term career. Besides that, if they had really wanted Geoff to write a script they were going to use, they wouldn't have put him on Green Lantern, which has been radioactive since the Ryan Reynolds movie.

I'm very interested in what Diane Nelson said though. One complaint about her was that she didn't exert any control over Johns. Her departure was also spun as positive at the time, but that doesn't seem to be true either, does it?
