A Rundown Of All Things Batman For ‘Metal’

Dark Nights: Metal has commenced.

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s hyped event kicked off this week in bizarre, unapologetic fashion. The issue had gladiator fighting, a megazord, multiverse, Barbatos, dinosaurs and more. It’s easy to see why, even after an issue, it’s the most talked about comics event in 2017.

Per usual, Metal is taking over DC with a ton of tie-ins, mainly focused on Batman. That’s fine with me, but when do they come out, what are they called, and how many are there? Thanks to DC, we now have that information.

Take a look:

Dark Nights: Metal #2

As Superman and Wonder Woman hunt for a missing ally, Batman investigates a mystery spanning centuries. When the World’s Greatest Detective discovers a foe even greater than the Justice League could possibly imagine, will Earth’s heroes be ready?

There you have it, for now. I hope you’ve been saving your money. To hop on the Metal ride, the price of admission is a little costly. But, it might just be worth it.
