Based on the opinions of our reviewers here, the arc entitled “Superheavy,” in which Jim Gordon has been carrying on as Batman, has been a mixed bag. Whether you love Gordon’s take on justice or not, the intention of the dynamic duo of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo was to put Bruce Wayne back in the cape and cowl by issue #50.
Capullo will then take a break from the Batman title to work with Mark Millar. It seems that, although not explicitly stated, with the return of Bruce, we may be seeing a new Batsuit, pending DC’s approval, of course.
Artist Greg Capullo took to Twitter and, in 140 characters, expressed his hope that DC will approve his new Batsuit. Don’t take it from me, see for yourself:
@GregCapullo It’s pretty terrific.

Capullo is calling it his “best idea.” As you can see, Snyder immediately lended his support. My hopes are up.
We don’t exactly know where this Batsuit will premiere if it gets the green light, but the logical choice would be for issue #50, when we welcome our buddy, Bruce.
