Scott Snyder is currently working on Batman and Swamp Thing. He has said before that he would like to work on a Superman title but not at the expense of his work on Batman, so I don’t think we have to worry about him leaving Gotham for Metropolis.
If true, Man of Steel would be launching sometime around the middle of 2013, coinciding with DC’s Comics Fifth Wave. This also would conveniently be the same time as the release of the upcoming Man of Steel movie.
Saying that it would be awesome for these two to combine their talent would be an understatement. With the art of Jim Lee and the creativity of Scott Snyder this collaboration is destined to be one of the most popular titles in the Superman stable. This is definitely a story to follow as any more information becomes available. I’ll be watching Lee‘s and Snyder’s Twitter feeds closely for any hints that this is more than a misheard conversation in a Toronto bar.
Canada is often called the True North Strong and Free, so here’s to hoping that the news of this pairing is the truth and we’ll be drawing a big red S shield on our calendars in June 2013 very soon.
