Kevin Smith to tackle Batman (again) and Green Hornet

After demonstrating that he can meet a publishing deadline, filmmaker Kevin Smith is returning to comic books with a pair of miniseries for DC Comics and Dynamite Entertainment.

Entertainment Weekly‘s PopWatch reports that Smith will follow last fall’s three-issue Batman: Cacophony with the 12-issue The Widening Gyre, and transform his abandoned 2004 Green Hornet screenplay into a miniseries for Dynamite, which announced in March that it has secured the license for the property.

Smith says The Widening Gyre will be split into two volumes, with a six-month break in between, to ensure “we don’t run into my usual problems with lateness.” The miniseries will feature a new hero who will spin off into a bimonthly solo series, written by Smith.

Batman: The Widening Gyre will debut in August, with Green Hornet bowing soon after.
