DC announced a new weekly series entitled "The New 52: Future's End" that will start in May. The series will kick off with a #0 issue on Free Comic Book Day in May. The series will be written by Jeff Lemire, Keith Giffen, Brian Azzarello, and Dan Jurgens, with art from the likes of Ethan Van Sciver, Jesus Merino, Aaron Lopresti and Jurgens. This appears to be the weekly series leaked by Rich Johnston a few months back and hinted at during a recent DC All Access Video.
While DC promised a large cast of characters appearing in the series, Batman Beyond will formally appear in-continuity in the series as a central character. Frankenstein and Firestorm will also be central characters, with Frankenstein's story set in the past, and Firestorm's set in the present. Some of the themes being explored is how technology and time affects heroes, and it looks like Brother Eye will be a major antagonist, if the first cover is any indication.
