With Batman #49 on the racks today, series writer Scott Snyder is making the rounds on social media and in the fan press to talk about the series and the last few issues of "Superheavy," the storyline he and artist Greg Capullo started in June which saw Bruce Wayne's memories taken away and James Gordon stepping in as Batman.
Snyder, for his part, wouldn't confirm a move to Detective Comics when ComicBook.com spoke to him earlier this week.
"There's a lot of rumors, but I'm still figuring it out, to be honest," Snyder said. "I'm proud of what Greg has been able to do and what I've been able to do with him. I'm trying to focus on [finishing the Batman run] right now and not worry about what happens next."
In this case, what he's working on is apparently very close to completion:
And thank you guys so much for the support on BATMAN #49 and on this arc in general. Batman fans are the best in the world.— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) February 10, 2016
With Capullo leaving, there had been some question as to whether Snyder would remain on Batman, but given his passion for the character and the way he's consistently talked about working on the book, it seemed likely he would remain in Gotham even withouts Capullo.
Meanwhile, neither has ever made any secret that once Capullo finishes an outside prestige project (reportedly with Kick-Ass's Mark Millar), they plan to reunite for a big DC project.
