Batman And Superman Unchained News From WonderCon
Yesterday there was a Batman Zero Year panel at WonderCon featuring Scott Snyder, his pal James Tynion IV, and John Cunningham. The trio teased Snyder’s upcoming Batman origin story as well as that other big project he has with Jim Lee- Superman Unchained. Bleeding Cool outlined a few of the more interesting tidbits.
It looks like Snyder and Greg Capullo have plans for Batman that will take them up to about the 50th issue. Capullo recently renewed his contract and Snyder is reportedly close to renewing his, which is said to have him on up in the Batman #50 neighborhood. Snyder said of Batman Zero Year “There’s nothing in this book that you’ve seen before. I’m not going to redo Year One.” He then went on to sell the audience on the book he says isn’t just a rehash of Batman Year One. BC summed it up:
Snyder then gave the crowd an impassioned sell on the new Zero Year story. The birth of which came from the realization that the events of Year One could not be part of the New 52. He could have transcribed a new Year One or he could tell a new origin in a way that has never been seen. There will be “different characters, challenges, and tech”, in short a different Gotham for Batman to be born in. While he doesn’t expect to reach the heights that the original Year One reached, Snyder and Capullo want the audience to see just how much they truly love the character.
It was also revealed that Superman was going to be in an upcoming issue of Batman and Batman will be in Superman Unchained early on. Speaking of Superman Unchained, it will have a 4-page double sided fold out that is an important part of the book and the story. Jim Lee has also told Snyder that he’s drawing Lex Luthor to look like Grant Morrison.
And finally, here’s the cover to Batman #22 by Capullo
