Update (Sept. 30 at 12:25 p.m.): Word comes our way that the announcement isn't Batman-related. We'll provide additional information when it becomes available. (The original story follows below).
Batman fans are in for a "major announcement" next week at New York Comic Con.
Michael Uslan, who's served as executive producer of every Batman film since Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster, told the Asbury Park Press' "Fan Theory" podcast that devotees should "stay tuned" for news coming out of a panel at 1:45 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10.
Although Uslan doesn't specify which panel, DC Comics' "Batman: The Bat-Universe" is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on the Empire Stage.
Announced early this month, the panel's description teases "breaking Batman news," with a lineup that includes creators Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Amy Chu, Khary Randolph, Tom King, Tim Seeley, Peter Tomasi and James Tynion IV.
Considering the involvement of Uslan, who's an executive producer of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," the "major announcement" presumably has something to do with movies. However, we'll have to wait until Oct. 10 to find out.
New York Comic Con will be held Oct. 8-11 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
