Tom King Explains Why The Batman & Catwoman Comic Was Delayed

Comic book writer Tom King explained why the Batman Catwoman series was delayed.

While Tom King announced he was departing from the main Batman comic book series, the acclaimed writer also revealed that he would instead work on a new series titled Batwoman Catwoman. While the Batman Catwoman series was initially scheduled to be released on January 2019, the solicits for comics due that month were unveiled this week and they did not mention the Tom King project.

Now, Tom King has taken to his official Twitter account to explain why Batman Catwoman will not hit its originally planned January release date. In a series of Tweets, Tom King revealed that he and artist Clay Mann expanded their ambitions for Batman Catwoman, but doing so required more time for them to properly complete their work:

“[…] to accomplish something that ambitious requires a minimizing of compromises. DKR did not have fill in artists. So Clay offered to do the whole thing, at 22 pages, but he’d of course need time. When the best artist in comics says “let’s do it right,” you don’t say no. But all that means that Bat/Cat is pushed back a bit, which is why it’s not in the January solicits. The first scripts are in; Clay’s drawing them now; they look gorgeous; I, hopefully like you, can’t wait for this one to be out. Thank you all for your patience.”

Unfortunately, Tom King did not reveal when Batman Catwoman might be released now.

Tom King is also c-writing the script for New Gods, a DC film helmed Ava DuVernay. Meanwhile, Batman and Catwoman are set to return to the big screen in a new film from director Matt Reeves.

Full plot details for Matt Reeves’ The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and features a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Paul Dano as the Riddler. Westworld star Jeffrey Wright was recently reported to be in talks for the role of Commissioner James Gordon.

The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
