Snyder Confirms “Batman Eternal” Year 2, Talks Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Comics Sabbatical

During a Halloween Reddit AMA session, “Batman” writer Scott Snyder revealed that DC Comics’ weekly “Batman Eternal” series will return after it’s previously announced conclusion with more installments.

“Yep!” Snyder wrote. “The story ends in March and then we’ll do a year 2 after a break (we have to get WAY ahead on a weekly series before it starts coming out).

DC co-publisher Dan DiDio previously hinted that “Eternal” would reappear after a March 2015 end date earlier this year, saying, “‘Batman Eternal’ started this April and runs to next March after which it takes a brief hiatus.” DC’s other two weekly series, “Futures End” and “Worlds End” are still expected to wrap up in the last week of March 2015 with no return scheduled.

Beyond the world of Gotham, Snyder said he has hopes to eventually spend time in another corner of the DCU. “I would greatly like to write Wonder Woman some day,” he said. “I have a whole story in mind that sort of tails off what Brian [Azzarello] and Cliff [Chiang] did. But one thing writing Clark and Bruce at the same time taught me is that for me, and this is just personal, I enjoy having very different projects on the docket at the same time. AV is big, over the top, epic drama and horror. Wycthes is small, cruel, black horror. batman is big superhero. Each one makes me use different muscles. WW and batman at the same time might be tough.” Later, he directly stated, “She’s who I’d write next at DC.”

Snyder also indicates that, while he has no intention of leaving comics, he has pondered taking a break. ” I’d like to do more prose, but I just haven’t found the time the last couple years. I think about taking a year off to do some in the near future, but for right now, I’m just trying to incorporate some prose into my comics a bit more.”

In a possible glimpse into his future, the writer says he has a Captain America story he’d “love to do,” along with Spider-Man. And, in a comment sure to get fans’ imagination revving, Snyder stated that he and his “Batman” partner Greg Capullo both “have an affinity for Ghost Rider.”
