DC Comics wouldn’t let a movie like “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” pass by without a tie-in, and the two superhero icons are taking their fight from live-action back to comic books in March with the previously announced series of 10 “Batman v Superman” variant covers. DC released the first, a “Detective Comics” #50 variant by Rafael GrampÃ¡, Friday afternoon.
Each cover will have three versions, like seen above, and will be released in equal quantity and polybagged, similar to December’s “Harley Little Black Book” variant initiative at DC.
“Batman v Superman” debuts in theaters on March 25, the same month as DC’s themed covers. “Detective Comics” #50 is the first scheduled for release, on March 2; here’s a look at the scheduled for the full slate of 10 (and yes, that’s Chris Daughtry the singert):
