Coming out of the Toronto Comic Con it was rumored that DC Comics would be launching a new Man of Steel comic book in conjunction with Zack Snyder’s new Superman movie of the same name next year.
The rumor is that Batman writer Scott Snyder and Justice League artist Jim Lee are the creative team on the new Man of Steel book.
The website ICV2 recently interviewed Bob Wayne and John Cunningham of DC Comics and asked them about that.
Let me put on my fanboy hat and ask if you can confirm the rumors that Scott Snyder will be working on a Superman: Man of Steel comic in 2013 to take advantage of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel movie?
Wayne: I certainly won’t confirm that, but I will say that it is reasonable to assume that given the release of Man of Steel next summer, we will come up with a publishing program that will both augment and take advantage of that opportunity.
Cunningham: I think that (a Scott Snyder Superman series) would be great. I’d read that.
Jim Lee also posted some Superman art which may or may not be a part of the new Man of Steel comic as well.
