Grant Morrison to co-write “Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt” with Scott Snyder

A few weeks ago, a new Metal interlude was announced: Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt.  If you’re drawing a blank, it was the one starring Detective Chimp.  Sounds awesome.

In some delightfully surprising news, Scott Snyder just announced via Twitter that he’ll be writing it with none other than Grant Morrison.

Metal has a lot of Morrison influences in it, so this seems like a good fit.  I’m a huge fan of his Batman run in particular, with “The Black Glove” being one of my top five Batman stories of all time, so this is pretty exciting.  We’ll keep you updated with any other plot details or developments, but for now let’s just throw on some good rock and roll in anticipation.
