The “New 52” era Batman creative team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will announce the details of DC’s next big summer event – which DC calls “the next seminal Batman story” – in a panel at next week’s Fan Expo Dallas. The announcement will be livestreamed for fans not in attendance at the convention.
Snyder previously teased the event at New York Comic Con, telling Newsarama it would be “very Batman centric, and very rock ‘n’ roll.” Snyder later described the event as a “capstone” for his Batman run with Capullo, who will return to DC after a stint illustrating Reborn, his creator-owned series with Mark Millar.
The announcement will occur in a panel called “DC Comics: Special Event” on Sunday, April 2 at 1 p.m. CDT. DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio will also be in attendance, with DiDio scheduled to moderate the event.
