Well, all the relevant C2E2 panels DC is holding have come and gone, and while there wasn't anything all that new announced, there were a few bits a pieces to report on.
Hit the jump for all the info you need to know.
LETS GET TO THE BULLET POINTS!
- The Free Comic Book Day issue DC is putting out is apparently really important to the whole universe, so check that out three (I think?) Saturdays from now.
- Alfred is a bad ass in Batman: Earth One
- Tired of the Court beating up Bruce? Issue #9 is the turning point for Bruce's fight against the owls.
- Batman: The Dark Knight #9 will not only feature Tim Drake fighting a Talon, but it will show what happens in Batman from that specific Talon's point of view
- The relationship between the Waynes and Kanes will be explored
- Snyder didn't say anything about the next arc (starting in #13) but it's going to be more twisted apparently
- Riddler and Hush will show up at some point soon(ish)
- Dark Knight: Boy Wonder (conclusion to All Star Batman and Robin) is still shelved.
- Tim Drake is going to be a big part of "Night of the Owls"
- Batman INC #2 will explore Talia's history (largely intact from the "old" universe)
- Chris Burnham said that Batman INC would be a mix between "Gritty Dark Knight stuff and 60s pop art Adam West"
- The new Batmobile debuting in Batman #9 will be a "heavy artillery" version of the car
- Batman Annual #1 will be in the vein of "Heart of Ice" from Batman: The Animated Series (also, Owls)
- A good portion of Detective Comics #9 (Owls tie in) is told from Jeremiah Arkham's point of view (GOOD!)
- In case you haven't read solicitations, the villain showing up in Batgirl #10 called Knightfall will be Babs' "arch nemesis." Simone is also really excited about "Night of the Owls"
- Higgins described the reveal in Nightwing #7 "just the beginning"
- We will learn how William Cobb's name got changed into Grayson (...he had a daughter who got married?)
- In Higgins' "Prince of Gotham" arc, he'll have Dick Grayson trying to establish a place of hope within Gotham (where Dick will be staying for the foreseeable future)
- All Star Western's Court of Owls tie in will lay the ground work/seeds for what we're currently seeing in the present day DCU
- There are no plans for Azrael currently in the New 52, but he's been discussed
- No word on Steph and Cass
- Harper Row, the girl we met in Batman #7 will have a "big" story in Batman #12 (I thought that had already been revealed)
- Daniel mentioned Joker will show up soon...ish
- Tony Zucco and other developments from Snyder's pre-New 52 stories, will be brought into Dick Grayson's life again...
