File this one under speculation, but probably pretty probably speculation. It seems that Scott Snyder (Batman) may be writing a Superman book with artist Jim Lee. DC is in no rush to lay the rumors to rest, and in some cases have been encouraging them. The series would likely tie into Warner Bros. Man of Steel film by Zack Snyder (no relation to Scott).
Rumors have been flying since last months Fan Expo in Canada, and most recently found their way into a Q&A panel at Baltimore Comic-Con. VP of sales Bob Wayne dodged the question, but in an another interview Wayne and VP of Marketing John Cunningham were giving some more straightforward answer (or at least as straightforward an answer as you can get with comics). When asked about the Snyder Superman possibility, Wayne had this to say:
I certainly won’t confirm that, but I will say that it is reasonable to assume that given the release of Man of Steel next summer, we will come up with a publishing program that will both augment and take advantage of that opportunity.
Cunningham had an answer that I can only assume was accompanied by a wink and a little laugh:
I think that [a Scott Snyder Superman series] would be great. I’d read that.
I’d say it is an extremely safe bet that there will be some kind of comic to coincide with Zack Snyder’s new movie opening in 2013, and DC will probably announce plans for something in the coming months. I think it would be a great idea to get Snyder aboard, as he is the emerging star of the 52. Snyder has also been saying how fun it would be to write a Superman book and hinting at it on his Twitter account, which really raises the probability factor. Jim Lee seems to be the go-to artist for many of the 52 books, so it would be great to get a pairing with Snyder. What do you think? Would you be excited about a Snyder/Lee Superman?
