Newsarama spoke with DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan Didio about September 2014’s books tying in to The New 52 Futures End and bringing back the 3D motion covers from this past September. This is what Dan said about the stories in each of the books during September:
"It gives some exciting teases of potential storylines that might be coming for our characters in the near future ,” DiDio said of the event. “These stories aren’t going to just be tied into the weekly. But what you’ll be seeing is a lot of the writers who are working on series right now projecting forward — their ideas, their storylines, where they think their character might be five years from now.
They followed up that interview with another one where Dan dropped this bit:
Nrama: So there is direct impact on the current day? If it’s set in the future, how does that happen?
DiDio: Because ultimately, we are… you know what? Rather than just alluding to this, we might as well say it here too.
We are going to have another weekly series kicking off in October that will be set in the current DCU timeline that will have direct implications on what’s happening with the five years later storyline.
And you’ll see a level of connectivity that I think will help really bring into focus where we see the future of the DCU heading.
Nrama: So this weekly that’s going to start in October — does it focus on one character, like Batman Eternal, or is it more of a “big DCU” thing?
DiDio: It’s much more world-building than that.
So, if we add that to the solicitation of The New 52 Futures End that says, “Five years from now, the DC Universe is reeling from a war with another Earth..” could this mean an Earth 2 weekly series? Bleeding Cool thinks so.
Do you want an Earth 2 weekly?
