DC Comics Announces Sequels To BATMAN '89 And Richard Donner's SUPERMAN

There's some huge news from DC Comics today as the publisher has announced plans to revisit the worlds of the classic Batman and Superman movie franchises, and you can find artwork and story details here.

This July, DC Comics will revisit the world of Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie and Tim Burton's Batman. Writer Rob Venditti is teaming with artist Wilfredo Torres for Superman '78, while screenwriter Sam Hamm and artist Joe Quinones are delving into Batman '89

The latter promises to pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director. It's said that, "Hamm and Quinones will help usher in the return of Selina Kyle/Catwoman and will debut a new Robin! Plus, Quinones has a vision for Harvey Dent/Two-Face that is as close to movie magic as a comic can get!"

So, despite the title, this is clearly set to serve as a Batman Returns sequel.

As for the Superman series, "bystanders are surprised and delighted by Superman’s abilities, and Lois Lane doesn’t (yet!) know that Clark Kent is secretly Superman. The sheer thrill of seeing a man fly, leap, or stop a bullet will be reflected in this environment where Superman has just been introduced! Inspired by Donner’s classic, timeless style of superhero storytelling, in Superman ’78 Venditti and Torres will show fans that a man can truly fly."

DC Comics has confirmed that Batman '89 and Superman '78 will six digital chapters of each new series on July 27, followed by new chapters of each comic book for the six weeks that immediately follow. The twelve chapters of each new series will also publish as six printed comics between August and October and as hardcover collections in October.

Check out some artwork for both of the newly announced titles below:
