Comic book fans expected big announcements at this week’s NYCC and DC has delivered the goods! During Thursday’s Superman panel, DC announced that acclaimed Batman writer Scott Snyder and superstar artist Jim Lee will be teaming up for a brand new Superman series.
“I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll just say it’s the Superman story I’d write if I only ever got one chance to write the character,” Snyder said. “It’s an exploration of everything I love and am fascinated by about him. Like Court of Owls for Batman, it’s a character piece for Clark — it’s going to challenge him to his core. And it’s definitely epic in scope, with huge action and drama — the biggest and most earth shaking action I’ve ever done. Can’t wait to see what you all think of it. Couldn’t be more grateful or excited to get the chance to make this one!”
This new Superman series has been long rumored to be Superman: Man of Steel, but DC has yet to confirm an official title or a release date. However, it is safe to assume that this series’ launch will coincide with the theatrical release of Man of Steel in June.
