C2E2 - DC PANEL

Posted by Bob Tilley Friday, 16 April 2010

Newsarama was at the convention in Chicago and sat in on the DC Panel here are some of the Batman highlights.

5:09 The next fan was confused why Rucka isn't on the new Batwoman ongoing announced this week.

5:09 DiDio said "Rucka has an open door with DC, and wanted to work on his own stuff, which is great for him"

5:09 "It's a special book, and we'll make sure it gets the best treatment possible"

5:10 Q: How involved will Tim Drake be in the Return of Bruce Wayne?

5:10 DiDio said he'll be very involved and "back in the mix" with the Bat-family in a big way when Bruce Wayne is back.

5:11 Johns also mentioned that the teen heroes that were in Young Justice and the early relaunch of Teen Titans will be seen in the latter book again soon.

5:11 Q: With multiple bat-books, do you try to make sure characters are presented the same way?

5:12 DiDio "Yes." "You might see slight differences as different books have their own tones, but overall yes."

5:12 Fan: Will Joker show up again?

5:12 DiDio "Soon."

5:18 Q: The Earth One OGNS: Batman and Superman have been so fleshed out by so many people. How will these be different than previous incarnations?

5:18 DiDio "One of the strongest things about Batman is the many ways you can interpret the character"

5:19 "He can walk the streets of Gotham, he can stand side-by-side with Superman, he can be on the moon, and it all seems natural"

5:19 "His character is intensely versital"

5:19 "Superman? Not as flexible."

5:19 "Superman will continue to grow in the fashion he is, and Batman will continue to be explored"

5:20 Q: What brought Birds of Prey back?

5:20 Johns: "I love that book and asked Gail if she wanted to write it again!"

5:20 Johns continued to say that he loves Black Canary and is excited to see her back with her friends.

5:21 Robinson mentioned that soon, the JLA will have more female characters than male, too.

5:21 DiDio, responding to the idea of Black Canary having her own solo series, said it was "more valuable" to her character to have her back with the Birds of Prey.

5:18 Q: The Earth One OGNS: Batman and Superman have been so fleshed out by so many people. How will these be different than previous incarnations?

5:43 Q: DCU Online, any news on a date for that yet?

5:43 Lee: "This Decade" "We are very close to making an announcement as to when that's coming out"

5:44 "You'll see a lot of cool characters that you've never seen in a 3d space"
