DC All Access Panel: WonderCon 2013

DC's speakers included Ann Nocenti, Scott Snyder, James Robinson, Bryan Q. Miller, John Cunningham



Source: DC Blog / CBR

The DC Comics All Access Panel kicked off WonderCon 2013 with teases and tidbits of upcoming DC plans.


Scott Snyder on Batman: Year One: "It's something we've been dying to do for a very long time.Year One really wouldn't be able to stand with the current New 52 continuity. I had an origin story that I had been playing with in my mind and if I ever got to do one this is what it would be. I'm crazy proud of it and nervous about it and I hope you enjoy it."

Snyder also spoke about Superman Unchained, his project with Jim Lee.  "It's meant to be a classic Superman story but done in a new way." Snyder also said that Lee was doing things on the book artistically "that I've never seen him do."  DC showed an image by Lee on the screen for a splash page of Superman Unchained. The page is actually four pages together that fold-out into a larger page. It's a two-sided, four-page fold-out in the book.

On Harper Row and her role in the Batman universe, Snyder claims that she was not designed or meant to become the new Robin. Instead, she gives a grounded perspective of Gotham, much like characters in Gotham Central did.


James Robinson on Earth 2:  We'll see the return of Captain Steel. Robinson is starting to put together all the pieces for a big event at the end of next year, promising "a killer surprise -- no pun intended -- coming up in issue #17".
- There's an issue coming up where we'll see the first [tease] of Doctor Mid-Night.
- Robinson is planning to expand the diversity of Earth 2 as well, with Captain Steel as a Filipino superhero.
- Mister Miracle and Barda will also be a part of the series in the future.

- A new Batman would be introduced in the upcoming annual issue. "Another big piece is this new Batman who will be a big part of  Earth 2 and a big part of the DC Universe," said Robinson. "He'll be around forever."
- Robinson teased that the Earth 2 Fury is not Donna Troy and when you see who her father is it will blow your mind !

- They also teased  "stay tuned" for other publications in the Earth 2 universe.

Ann Nocenti on Catwoman: "The hard part of this stuff is that everything is a secret," said Nocenti, praising the work of series artist Rafa Sandoval. "I think that his approach to action is layered with -- sometimes it feels 'Three Stooges,' sometimes it's brutal and heart-wrenching. A lot of fun I'm having is just feeding off what Rafa is doing and heading down roads I think will visually inspire him."

She also added that it is "so much fun to start with Catwoman writing Joker stories. This character is also a part of Geoff Johns' Justice League of America and the idea that you're going to put her on a team where she's suddenly doing heroics -- it's a little odd."
 
Nocenti also spoke about her new series Katana, saying that she's did her research by going back to Kurosawa films and the '70s Japanese films that she loved.
 
 
Bryan Q Miller on Smallville Season 11:  The upcoming arc brings Kara back to the Smallville world. A Booster Gold mishap lands Clark in the 30th Century, noting the arc would also bring the Legion back and change Kara's traditional miniskirt costume. "Plus, pants, because she flies around."
 
 A fan asked if the Doom Patrol would be making an appearance. John Cunningham (DC Markting) replied "sounds very interesting" and then would not say anything else on the matter.

isn't that the truth. earth 2 might be well received by new fans, but it's still not much more than an elseworlds story to me. I'll take my classic JSA any day of the week thanks.

Does not look like this is a storyline.

Maybe Paul Singham was asking how long will the focus be on Dr. Fate ?

Based on the solicits and what Robinson said at the ECCC DC Panel, this arc wraps next month (#12) because then in #13 the focus shifts to the new Captain Steel.

Additional quotes from Robinson at WonderCon:

The one thing that I'm beginning to tell people now is that Earth 2 #13 … really is the beginning of all the pieces coming together for a big event at the end of next year. Obviously, everybody can guess that it's when these Earths are going to finally meet for the first time. Those pieces are starting to be laid in my book and you'll also see things happening in other books. Yes, I have this independence and I'm creating all these characters and creating this world, but I do have to be aware that it is a part of the DC Universe. Yes, I have freedom, but I do have to be mindful of what's going on in Justice League and various other books.


The new Batman of Earth 2 is very different. I'm saying this at every interview, I really want to stress that I was reading a message board … and they were guessing who this Batman was going to be, various names, and some guy said -- I thought it was a quite fair remark -- "I don't care who it is, I just don't want it to be one of those gimmicks where it's just a crazy guy for two issues and he just get killed off." We've seen that. Marvel and DC have both done it in the past and it's always a little bit unsatisfying. I just want to stress that this is a character that will be around permanently. He's not going anywhere, he's going to have a huge impact on Earth 2 and on the whole DC Universe. This is definitely a big character we're bringing into the DC world. This isn't a gimmick.
