Batman Eternal 2: Electric Boogaloo?
Above is a screenshot from Scott Snyder's current Reddit AMA where he was asked if there would be more Batman Eternal, which there has been some mixed messaging about in recent months... And apparently, yes... yes there will be some more Batman Eternal.
One can figure the "break" Snyder mentions would be April/May, when DC is moving to the West Coast and whatever that Bandaid project I have absolutely no interest in by the sounds of it is being published. But perhaps more, because like he mentioned, they've got to get very far ahead on a weekly series.
I'm torn... I'd be interested in reading another big story like this that sort of brings everyone in, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel like Eternal drags on a bit from time to time. Pacing on a weekly has got to be tough, but if we were to get more, I'd like to see it tightened up a bit more, and no more "Well, that was the last of this plotline we'll see for months" (Hellooooo nano-virus swarm Red Robin is dealing with... MIA since issue #5...). But I would be interested to see a post-Doyle reflection of Gotham in a weekly format, especially if books like Grayson, Batgirl and Gotham Academy were keeping to themselves. It'd be fun to see all those elements potentially come together without compromising the original titles.
