Diggle to write Daredevil? And DC animation news

by

Apparently Joe Quesada revealed (before the comment was promptly removed) that Andy Diggle’s going to be taking over Daredevil when Ed Brubaker’s done. Certainly interesting, but was it really that long ago since Brubaker started writing the series? Guess that’s what happens when I stop following the series regularly. Greg Rucka would make a fine replacement for Brubaker too, though…

Also, DC’s revealed that after it does its Green Lantern Direct-to-DVD video, it’s adapting the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies story by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness, in which they faced off against then-President Lex Luthor. The story had its ups and downs, but maybe they’ll fix the flaws in the animated version. Personally, I just hope they get Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly and Clancy Brown to voice Batman, Superman and Lex Luthor respectively: you can tell those are the voices in Loeb’s head when he writes the characters.

Next on GGG: Watchmen! We might do something before then, but either way, we WILL be talking about Alan Moore’s masterpiece… and a little movie they made about it.

    Diggle is a great candidate to write Daredevil, so I can’t be upset by the choice, although Brubaker (from what I’ve read) is great and it’s sad to see him go so soon.

    Any hint on whether Lark or someone else would continue on the art duties?

    Naw, nothing yet. Given how quickly the news that Diggle’s taking over Daredevil was yanked off the web, I don’t think Marvel’s ready to announce who the artist will be. Lark would be nice, but we’ll see…
