Recently both writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo (best known as the creative team on the New 52 Batman) have been teasing that they will reteam on something big from DC Comics. Today, during a panel at the Dallas Fan Expo, Dark Nights: Metal was announced by Snyder and Capullo as the next project they will work on together. The Batman-centric event will focus on a mystery that began at the dawn of man involving Nth Metal and Hawkman. The 6 part story kicks off this August, run monthly, and will go beyond Batman to encompass other major characters in the DCU. Snyder promises the event will push the ramifications of Rebirth and The Button further along towards establishing a more solid status quo for DC.
