Fri, 07/22/2011 - 9:00am
Today at 3:00 pm PST, DC Comics will host a Superman news panel in room Room 6DE, which will provide Comic-Con attendees with a sneak peek at what they can expect to see in September and beyond. To give fans on-site and around the world a chance to follow the news, DC Comics will be live tweeting the news from the @DC_NATION Twitter handle, as well as posting updates to the DC Comics Facebook page.
Clark Kent is a bachelor, Lois Lane is dating a hunky new co-worker and the sky's the limit for her career as the new boss of the Daily Planet's TV and New media department. The Daily Planet is under new ownership, as the paper has been purchased by a global media conglomerate. Looks like things in Metropolis just got a whole lot more interesting, as Superman news continues to turn heads at Comic-Con 2011.
"A lot of the buzz we've seen in the press and online has been Superman-focused," said Jim Lee, Co-Publisher at DC Entertainment. "We're really excited for fans to see this take on Lois in September. This character has always been a successful modern woman and her new role at the DAILY PLANET opens up dramatic new story possibilities."
Today's Comic-Con panel will cap off a busy week fit for the Daily Planet, which included news breaks on Clark Kent and his changed relationship status with Lois Lane, the cover reveal for “Action Comics” issue one, the release of Grant Morrison's acclaimed book, Supergods and the reveal of the new love interest who has Lois Lane's heart, Daily Planet co-worker Jonathan Carroll.
“We're bringing a fresh perspective, both physically and emotionally to Superman,” said Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher at DC Entertainment. “In addition to life as a bachelor, Clark Kent has to adjust to Perry White having a new boss and a new status quo at the DAILY PLANET.”
