Scott Snyder has announced that starting in June, he and artist Greg Capullo will write a year long arc titled "Batman: Zero Year".
This will be a continuation of Batman #0 in which we saw the New 52 interpretation of Bruce Wayne's origin. Snyder said the following about the arc:
“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. 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."
Also worth noting is that Snyder has teased via twitter that the Riddler will be making his New 52 debut.
I am pretty excited about this news. What do you big kids think? Sound off with your thoughts below!
