Following up on news that the Comics Nexus broke earlier in August after a silent / soft release of DC’s November solicitations, and seemingly confirmed by writer-artist Tony Daniel, DC’s co-EIC Dan Didio confirmed the Bat status quo at this weekend’s Fan Expo Canada:
Despite the initial plans to off the character in final pages of “Infinite Crisis” — a decision that was changed in the “eleventh hour” according to DiDio — the question of whether Grayson is a permanent fixture in the Batman costume has been a popular one among comic fans.
“I’m going to give away a little secret: he was going to go back to Nightwing pretty quick, but that reaction that we’ve seen kept him in the costume longer — and will see him there in the future. He’s not coming out anytime soon just because Bruce Wayne is coming back,” DiDio said.
