Batman/Superman Brings Movie Magic To The Omniverse (Preview)

Superman/Batman or Batman/Superman has been a relatively popular series over the years, teaming DC Comics' two most popular characters up, but rarely going up against the respective solo titles, save for the initial run with Jeph Loeb, Ed McGuinness and Michael Turner.

So maybe it's time to try something else? Gene Luen Yang, Ivan Reis and Danny Miki (Where's Joe Prado?) are to show a variety of "what if?" worlds for the series, spinning out of Death Metal. Could we have a Batman-Verse/Superman-Verse coming? With the sketch art, showing parallel lives, as playing out on movie film reel, it seems to involve politicians and Hollywood studios.

As well as some designs for the cover-featured big bad Batman/Superman villains to come, from other worlds. Including one with a Spider-like design?
