There are big changes ahead for our Batman books, and if you’ve read BATMAN #40 and DIVERGENCE #1, you know what we’re referring to. It’s one of the reasons we held a special Twitter Q & A with Batman writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo on Friday—to help you get some answers about what lies ahead for Gotham’s greatest hero and for the star creative team who are responsible for his latest adventures. But if you missed out, don’t worry.
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s legendary ENDGAME story arc comes to a heart-stopping conclusion in BATMAN #40.
In this action-packed issue, Batman and team have rallied together in an iconic battle between good and evil. Even Batman’s villains have joined in the fight against the clown prince of crime.
It’s been quite a ride, but with yesterday’s BATMAN #40, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Joker-and-Batman-as-legend storyline “Endgame” has come to its end. The title would certainly seem to be an apt one judging by how the issue ends, and yet, with a new issue of Batman out in June (and an original Batman short story in DC’s Free Comic Book Day offering, Divergence), Batman isn’t going anywhere. In fact, Batman’s never been more exciting, unpredictable or relevant. Batman has never been more alive.
As you’ve likely heard, the Clown Prince of Crime will make his frightening return to the big screen in 2016’s Suicide Squad, which is currently in production.
Today, in honor of the Joker’s 75th Anniversary, Suicide Squad director David Ayer tweeted the first official image of him.
