Paul Dini Will Return To Batman

A key creative force behind Batman: The Animated Series, Paul Dini has announced to SFX that he plans on returning to the streets of Gotham City.

“Yeah, I have a big Batman story in me, it’s a very personal one and I’ve just got permission from DC to do it” he tells SFX. ‘We’re just finalizing the deal right now for me to write it as a graphic novel and I’ve very excited about it.”

Dini also for Batman: Streets of Gotham and Gotham City Sirens comics and while he’s very tight lipped about this new story, he did say the new story won’t be published for “about a year or two”.

“I think it’s going to a really terrific story, I’ve gotten nothing but great response from the folks at DC on it. I really can’t say much more until we announce it formally but I’m really looking forward to this and jumping in and devoting my entire energy to nothing but writing this Batman story.”

Finally, the writer concluded the interview rather ominously, “It’s probably the last big Batman story I have .…. but never say never!”

As a Batman fan and a fan of Dini’s work, all I can say is that I can’t wait.
