Snyder and Capullo Reunite, Transform the DCU with #DCMetal

No comments

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. The news was revealed at Fan Expo Dallas and streamed
​ ​
worldwide via Facebook Live.

“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.
