Nerdist has revealed that DC’s third weekly series premiering in October 2014 will be entitled, Earth 2: World’s End. The series will be written byTom Taylor, Paul Levitz, Daniel H. Wilson, Marguerite Bennet, and Mike Johnson. The art on the series will be provided by Eddy Barrows, Jorge Jimenez, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqeira, and Tyler Kirkham.
The above image by Ben Oliver shows that things aren’t going too well for Val, Power Girl, Batman, Huntress, Doctor Fate, and Green Lantern. For that matter Apokolips crushing the planet doesn’t bode well either.
Update: I just noticed that Batman is holding Huntress the same way Batman is holding Robin on the collected Batman: A Death in the Family (Jason Todd’s Death).
Do you think this will be in addition or in place of Earth 2 and Worlds’ Finest?

Comic Vine has a preview of the “First Contact” crossover in Worlds’ Finest #21 by Paul Levitz, Greg Pak, R.B. Silva, Joe Weems, and Norm Rapmund.
It is kind of odd that DC is skipping part 3 of this crossover and publishing part 4 first. Batman/Superman #9 (part 3) is scheduled to come out April 16, 2014.

Newsarama is starting to roll out early solicitations of DC Comics for June 2014. The New 52 - Futures End #5 solicitation is interesting.

Mr. Terrific unveils his latest technical achievement – but will it take over the DC Universe? Plus, Firestorm’s inner conflict explodes!

This leads me to believe that Earth 2 is the the other earth they are referring to in the May Solicitations.

Five years from now, the DC Universe is reeling from a war with another Earth…

And that is why it is Futures End not Future’s End.

Earth 2 has seen a bunch of additions to its cast over the past couple months. Who would you like to see get the the new Earth 2 treatment next? I have omitted any characters or legacies that have already appeared. An example would be, Green Lantern, has appeared so he, Jade and Obsidian are not on the list. 

What JSA Member/Legacy would you like to get the Earth 2 treatment?

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.

Gotham Spoilers has a quick preview of Batman/Superman #8 by Greg Pak and Jae Lee and maybe Kenneth Rocafort . This book kicks off the “First Contact” crossover with Worlds’ Finest.
UPDATE: Helena Wayne Huntress pointed out that this is also available to view on iBooks. I’ve replaced with the Jae Lee cover with cover dress. It also looks as though he might be doing the whole book. We’ll see if Kenneth Rocafort has some pages in there on Wednesday.
