Snyder responded positively to questions about the missing Batman villain.
While most of Batman's iconic rogue's gallery has made some sort of substantial appearance in one of the character's twenty-six core series, Edward Nigma has been noticeably absent save for a cameo in the first issue of Scott Snyder's Batman.
However, Snyder confirmed that the villain would have a substantial role in an upcoming Batman arc, presumably the one following the Joker-centric "The Death of the Family".
In a Twitter question and answer session, Snyder responded that he would be using the Riddler in 2013 after he was asked multiple times about the character's absense in the New 52.
Snyder also confirmed that artist Greg Capullo would remain Batman's primary artist and that he was working on new creator-owned projects in addition to American Vampire.
