Yesterday, Bleeding Cool reported a Rob Liefeld tweet about the existence of a Brad Meltzer/Bryan Hitch Superman/Batman comic in the works. However, a Bleeding Cool source at DC pointed out that this, while planned at one point, was not anymore and hadn’t been for some time.
Bryan Hitch backed that up tweeting;
There’s a lot of misinformed stuff out there judging by the mails and tweets I’ve had these last two days do let me clarify a bit.
Ultron whatever it’s called is long since finished, last year really. I WAS offered a potential Supes/Bats book but Brad didn’t have time.
So Supes-Bars never got beyond a ‘wouldn’t it be nice if?’ stage. Later Jim and Dan suggested Man of Steel with Scott Snyder which would have been great as we adore each other but I’m committed to other projects so that didn’t happen.
I have several projects on the go, all creator owned and that’s where I’ll be for the foreseeable future.
The new stuff is pretty cool though and you’ll hear about it when the year turns.
We expect Man Of Steel to be announced at Thursday’s Superman panel at NYCC. Bleeding Cool has been told repeatedly that Jim Lee will be drawing Man Of Steel, but at one point we did hear that Hitch was attached to it. Hitch is currently drawing America’s Got Powers, which we believe is one of the better comics of 2011 – and more of you should be reading it.
