NEWSARAMA - DAN DIDIO 10 Q&A

Posted by Bob Tilley Monday, 26 October 2009

More Newsarama 10 Q&A with Dan Didio confirmed that Paul Levitz is writing the Batman Beyond character into the upcoming Superman/Batman Annual. There are a few more Batman related questions, which we have consolidated here...

We got to see the teaser image of your upcoming run on The Outsiders. The mysterious Superman character looks like it may be Steel. If that is Steel how do you see him as a character? ...If this is not Steel, what were you reasons for choosing this particular Superman character? as it mostly for the shock of a team mostly associated with Batman and...? Will the team play a larger role in the New Krypton/Superman story for next year?

DiDio: It is definitely not Steel. And the reason we have a Superman-related character in the book is because there are certain events that will take place throughout the DC Universe in 2010 that The Outsiders will be part of. And this will lead to that story.

Nrama: So the fact that he's got a Superman symbol would imply Dave's right that it involves next year's Superman story?

DiDio: The great thing about The Outsiders story next year is we start with a lot of ties to the Batman storylines, and then we'll be crossing into Superman and other events in the DCU.

7) KentClark wrote:
Any news yet about who will be doing Adventure Comics after Geoff Johns and before Levitz? And who is doing art for Levitz?


DiDio: I can tell you something about what Paul's doing. Paul will actually be working on three annuals for DC Comics in the beginning of next year. The first one up will be a Superman/Batman Annual that Paul is writing, which we're very excited about because it features very interesting characters from beyond, so to speak.

The third one, I don't want to announce just yet, because we're a little too far out.

Nrama: Is this Superman/Batman Annual at all connected to the changes we're going to see to the Superman/Batman title?

DiDio: It's just a stand-alone Superman/Batman Annual, although it's oversized. Did I mention the word beyond?

Nrama: Oh jeez. I can't believe I didn't pick up on that the first time. So we're talking about Batman Beyond appearing in this annual?

DiDio: Exactly. That's the story that Paul is writing.

Nrama: Will it tie into the Batman Beyond mini-series that's coming in 2010?

DiDio: No, it's just a stand-alone story dealing with Batman and Superman and Batman Beyond.

I'm a big fan of Tim Drake/Red Robin. I think the direction he's heading right now is great. Even better then Dick's in my opinion because he's got a mission - he's truly driven just as Bruce always was.


DiDio: Exactly. Will we be seeing Tim's mission being noticed by the "big guns" (Superman, Wonder Woman) and is he (hopefully) a big part of the story of Bruce next year spanning the entire DC Universe since so far he's the only one not backing down from believing Bruce is alive?

DiDio: Let's take this from a couple points of view, OK? First is that we wanted to address the fact that we always felt Tim was the greater detective of all the Robins that existed. And I think that's one of the reasons why he's extremely motivated to find the answers here. Whether or not he has absolute belief that Bruce is alive, or whether he's holding on desperately to something he wants to believe in is something that plays out over the course of the story. It gives him a little more motivation and a little more heart to what he's doing.

But the events that take place in what he finds out does capture and does get totally involved in all the events involving Batman next year, and in World's Finest as well.

As for Superman and Wonder Woman, it does touch upon some things in their world, but both those characters have very big storylines of their own right now that are requiring both of their attention. But as for Tim's involvement in Batman's world? Absolutely. Front and center throughout 2010.
