Scott Snyder and Frank Miller writing Dark Knight 3 together. Set further in the future and its about Carrie Kelley trying to find a successor to watch over Gotham.
Take all my money.
I know Frank Miller gets a very bad wrap these days and a lot of it is for good reasons, but as somebody who's favourite comic of all time is DKR (I read it multiple times a year), and who enjoys Strikes Again and All Star for what they are, this is exciting exciting news. I think there's hope for the wary in that Snyder will be there to reign in the crazy old Miller who is still a good storyteller, just poor at execution. Also its because of Franks poor health that he won't be taking art duties.
Whether this ever comes out or not it'll be exciting to see what happens. Carrie Kelley is a great character and it was dissappointing to get such a short-lived version in the New 52
There's a lot of "Frank Miller is a hack" in this forum, and while I understand that lately he's gone the way of Alan Moore, it's totally unfair to dismiss the fact that he created the Batman we love today and one of the greatest Batman stories of all time as well as the greatest Daredevil stories, early Sin City and of course Ronin which gets mixed reviews but I think is a great story and has one of my favourite panels/quotes (which I think sums of Frank Miller's career path) - "Isn't it funny? The world's a wreck... But the moon's still pretty. Funny..."
