Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo Reunite For Dark Nights: Metal

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, along with DC Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, just announced that their highly anticipated event, Dark Nights: Metal, will rock comics this summer.

“I’ve been planning Metal for as long as I’ve been writing Batman,” says Snyder. “But this is bigger than Batman. Greg and I started dropping clues during Court of Owls, we continued through our Joker stories and we placed our biggest hints in the run that culminated with Batman #50. And now we’re back to tell a story that breaks everything apart. This will be the definitive project of our careers. Metal takes us in an entirely new direction. Greg and I will dig beneath the surface of all the stories we’ve told to find a place of terror and twisted nightmares.”

The New York Times bestselling Batman writer and artist team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo made their mark as one of the great duos in Batman history. Together on a single title for an outstanding fifty issues, Snyder and Capullo’s award-winning stories The Court of Owls, Death of the Family, Zero Year and Endgame turned generations of Batman fans into a global horde of Batman superfans. With Dark Nights: Metal, Scott and Greg will build on this strong foundation and broaden the scope of their storytelling to encompass the full expanse of the DC Universe.

“As you’ve probably heard by now, brother Scott and I are renewing our comic wedding vows,” says Capullo. “I’m looking forward to rock’n’ and roll’n’ together again. Fans have been loud and clear; they want more from us. You know what they say; give the people what they want. Jonathan Glapion and FCO, the original Bat team, will be riding the lightning with Scott and I once again. We’re primed and ready to blow it up.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to see Scott and Greg take on the DC Universe,” says DC Entertainment Publisher Dan DiDio. “Dark Nights: Metal leans into the strength of the relationship Scott and Greg forged on Batman to launch something new and unexpected. We’re pushing the world’s finest heroes in new, unexplored directions to tell a giant story, using all the characters in our pantheon.”

DC’s new summer blockbuster publishing plans complement DC Universe Rebirth, which is filled with stories about superheroes that push characters beyond their potential to a place where their courage is tested and they persevere in the face of evil. Dark Nights: Metal will examine every choice a hero doesn’t take and every path they don’t walk, and open up worlds that are forged by nightmares.

“I want Metal to be built upon the stories happening now in Rebirth and create new material that feels really modern and different,” continued Snyder. “And above all, it’s going to be fun. Even with terror and nightmares, it won’t be grim. Dark Nights: Metal will be celebratory, huge and crazy. I’ve said it before: I am going for out-of-control dinosaurs and lasers.”

Dark Nights: Metal is DC at its most heroic, clashing with titans of terror from realms yet to be explored. Look for the first issue on shelves in August 2017.

Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo Discuss Batman: Zero Year

batman_zeroyear_crop

Kicking off this June, Batman: Zero Year is an epic and grand 11-issue arc that chronicles the untold details of Batman’s origin story within DC Comics-The New 52. From the #1 New York Times bestselling creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, Zero Year takes flight in BATMAN #21.

“He becomes Batman pretty early in this,” Snyder teased to Comic Book Resources about Bruce Wayne picking up the Dark Knight’s cape and cowl. “You’ll see him as Batman not too far in. So in terms of that origin, that’s part of it. But part of this is the first big adventure he had as Batman. It’s not just how Bruce becomes Batman. That’s certainly a big part of ‘Zero Year’ at the beginning, but it’s also about how the city changes for him. It’s about how he becomes its hero. What does that mean? And what kind of threat is it going to throw at him to challenge him and make sure he’s worthy of that?”

For months now, fans have wondered what the next big Batman event following the acclaimed “Death of the Family” would be.

This morning, DC Comics answered their question. Kicking off in June, Batman: Zero Year is an epic and grand 11-issue arc that chronicles the untold details of the Dark Knight’s origin story within DC Comics – The New 52.

“It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin.’ It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in the New 52,” series writer Scott Snyder explained. “We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact. It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain … It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in The New 52. It builds up the mythology.”

Illustrated by series artist Greg Capullo, Batman: Zero Year begins in June’s BATMAN #21.
