    No one knows and anyone who says they do is full of it.

    All we know is the fairly credible rumors from Rich Johnson's Bleeding Cool that whatever plan Dan Didio had for Death Metal and 5G are changing and the future direction of the DCU is currently in flux, even moreso now that the Covid19 infections have shut down DC's printing company and their Free Comic Book Day sampler has been pushed back to May.

    DC hasn't sayd many things.
    But originallly when Scott Snyder started "Dark Knights: Metal", It was ment to ba a side story from the main timeline. Thus couldn't cause a reboot.
    But as you can see, this project has had more implication than initially announced, so we don't know what might happen.
    If it's a reboot, I would be very disapointed. I've been hatting Scott Snyder's work since the begining. I don't know why he gets so much love.

    That's plain stupid. Getting something but not reading it is stupid. There are so many other things you could get insteat, why waste money on something you don't read ?

    I have a feeling some kind of reboot is on the horizon just to undo the things that Didio did. The fact that artists are being told to stop working on projects is proof that at least some of his mandates have been discarded. Now, how extensive that reboot will be is anyone's guess. But I imagine someone like Bendis, for instance, will probably lose a lot of their influence over things like the Legion. Bendis was a Didio hire and people who loved the kid version of Jon are not digging the teen version. They want the Super-sons back. My guess is things like Bendis Legion won't be around much longer. Even the latest issue kind of hints that their timeline is less than permanent.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    I'm sorry but what's the point in that? You're supporting something you don't even like or want, wouldn't your money be better spent elsewhere?

    There was his entire Batman run (minus Black Mirror) before that. Metal was just part of a long-form story Snyder's doing with Batman. It just got bigger when he started Justice League.

    Then you are missing "Gates of Gotham" and "The Batman Who Laughs".

    You claim to be a completionnist, but don't want the related Justice League stories !?
    You also claim to want all of Batman, but do you know he's also in the Justice League.

    Do you also no that Black Mirror, Gates of Gotham, Batman New52, All-Star Batman and Metal are all complete storylines and are not part of one big run but of separate runs that happen to be by the same writter.

    You really are an odd person.

    Why didn't they just use the end of Doomsday Clock as the source for a reboot and the start of a new continuity? Why do we need additional (and seemingly endless) stories "explaining" how the multiple timelines are all messed up, culminating in a story that fixes them? It seems like they're more interested in writing stories that take place in the confusing mess than they are with fixing it and moving on. And so we get a series of stories in which history is rebuilt, over and over again - as if Crisis on Infinite Earths were happening once a year. Or continuously.
