DC Comics is planning on introducing its first Black Batman. The news was announced by the newly appointed DC Publisher/CCO Jim Lee. Lee didn’t reveal more details but said the new Batman will be a different take on the character and will be a father of two.
Lee said the introduction of the new Batman is to bring diversity and not repetitiveness. The new series will be written by John Ridley with Nick Derington as the series artist. The mini-series is part of the idea that anyone can be Batman, and try and keep things interesting and fresh, Lee revealed.
The new Batman will be coming in 2021.
