SDCC2014: Will the Joker be returning to the New 52 soon?

July 26th, 2014 by Christopher Williams Comments

It’s been too long since we’ve seen Mr. J. make an appearance in the New 52. Last time we saw our favorite villain he was making a dash as his plan to destroy the Bat Family had fallen through, though it had served his purpose.

Well, at today’s Batman Eternal panel at SDCC 2014 Scott Snyder not only revealed the name for the next Batman story arc, Endgame, he also confirmed that the Joker will make a return in the story arc. Snyder says that Endgame is a sort of thank you to all the fans and readers out there who have truly embraced Snyder and Capullo as one of the best Bat creative teams to date.

In describing Endgame Snyder said that it’s his favorite story arc to date, and after reading the awesome that was the Owls, that’s really saying a lot. Endgame will focus on the Joker looking to take revenge on Batman and his Family, though Snyder pointed out that it doesn’t necessarily mean piling up Bat bodies as there are other ways to hurt the Bat other than killing his friends and family.
