Mark Waid (Kingdom Come) is returning to DC Comics after vowing to never work there again after a fallout w/ Dan Didio who fired him from Superman just two days after he was hired to write Superman due to mysterious "Dan Didio reasons"....Superman is Waid's favorite character of all-time.

....Maybe now Mark Waid will take over for Bendis on Supes....Joshua Williamson's time on The Flash is also ending so he could be a contender for Supes or Justice League too...

Mr Freeze better be in this event. Seems a good time for Killer Frost and Icicle to get a push to. Bit of a closet fan of Killer Frost, personally.

I mean this event seems like it’s based on mythology and magic. Freeze is 100% based on science. So just being an ice villain doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a natural fit for the story.

Latest DC rumors from Bleeding Cool

https://bleedingcool.com/comics/goss...c-comics-2021/


Quote:
  • DC Comics' December solicitations note that Brian Bendis' runs on Superman and Action Comics are ending in December – and this was after statements Brian Bendis made in June saying he would be staying on the Superman titles at DC "for a looooooong time."

  • Grant Morrison's run on Green Lantern will be ending soon, with no replacement project lined up.

  • Scott Snyder's Death Metal is coming to an end. He has American Vampire at DC, but nothing else announced.

  • Tom King has the Rorschach, Batman/Catwoman and Strange Adventures series for 12 issues each, but don't expect any similar big deals after that.

  • Geoff Johns brought the noise with Doomsday Clock and Three Jokers but, again, nothing lined up to follow.


These are all writers who DC Comics wooed and threw big money at to write for them. These were expensive deals, but they helped DC grab market share and get headlines. That is what is changing. The big trucks of cash are stopping. DC Comics will not be matching or exceeding former deals on upcoming projects. This is the kind of thing agents will always ask for and advise their clients not to accept lesser deals going forward, for fear of diluting their going rate.


But it's a rate that DC Comics isn't going to match going forward. What does this mean? Well, some creators want to do the work anyway and won't care if they knock their going rate. We speculated that Mark Waid may be taking Superman from Brian Bendis, but we have also been told he was offered Green Lantern when Grant Morrison's run ends.


James Tynion IV's run on Batman was at a lower rate than both Tom King and Scott Snyder were paid, he was not at that stage as big a name – though the success of Something Is Killing The Children, Wynd and The Department Of Truth at Boom and Image have changed that equation. The Department Of Truth, with 100,000 + orders for the first issue, will pay Tynion what a year of Batman comics at DC would pay.


With digital, mass market and bookstore markets as a greater focus for DC Comics going forward, outside of the comic book shop, these are considered to be less writer-sensitive and more character-sensitive markets. Basically, it matters less who writes them will be the new motto at DC.

Bendis recently tweeted this, which sort of scares me...I really hope it doesn't mean he'll be writing Justice League, Batman, Flash or some big CRISIS book. Would be particularly not pleased if he got to screw up the Bat-family next.

I don’t watch Supergirl so I don’t know if this applies to that show.

Everyone on The Flash just kind of seems like they are not interested anymore. So I’m not sure how much longer The Flash will go on for.

upcoming frightening thought.....

Bendis will totally get to write a CRISIS


In Bendis's first issue of Young Justice he made it a point to re-iterated their had been "7 Crises" in DC and that each time a crisis happened things got messed up (like people forgetting Connor Kent)....

In this week's Action Comics he reveals Young Justice villain Dr. Glory, responsible for Connor Kent's disappearance, as well as the Invisible Mafia leader Leone are actually from Earth 3...and that Dr. Glory had jumped multiverses 7 times before...

I bet Bendis re-writes DC history so that this scientist Dr. Glory is reponsible for every DC Crisis by multiverse hopping and it having some weird effect on things when she does...

I bet he does end up getting Justice League or a CRISIS book and re-writes all of DC history...

In other news, Zack Snyder is going to end up doing more shoots for his Justice League cut, with Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) all being confirmed as being involved in the reshoots.

That's interesting. I have a pretty strong sense that this will get enough views and boost subscribers to the point of HBO basically telling Snyder to finish the story and end up writing a check for him to produce a sequel.

There's already a ton of buzz on this, they're gnarly comfortable in investing in the project, and a 4 part miniseries prob fits Snyder's vision and serves his talents more than cramming all his ideas into a movie.
