First Batman v Superman Inspired Variant Cover Released
After years of waiting, Batman v Superman is finally just around the corner. With just over a month left before the premiere, DC Comics has announced the release of 10 variant covers for certain comic book titles to be released in March. Now the first look at the variant for Detective Comics #50 has been released, and it's definitely amazing.
The cover by Rafael Grampa shows Batman in his armored suit fighting Superman with what looks to be Kryptonite. Superman seems to be wearing a suit that resembles the one from the movie and Batman has his name etched across his breastplate(something which hasn't been done in the comics before).  

The variant, along with those for the rest of the titles, will come in three different types: pencils, inks, and colors, and readers won't be able to tell which one they've received until they open them (they'll also come polybagged). This is an approach that DC seems to be taking more and more, as last month they did the same thing with the comic "Harley's Little Black Book."  

The variants can be found for different titles related to Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Here's the list of series the variants will be attached to as well as the artists who're creating them:  

• Detective Comics #50 (variant by Rafael Grampa)
• Action Comics #50 (variant by Martin Ansin)
• Batman/Superman #30 (variant by Kevin Maguire)
• Robin Son of Batman #10 (variant by Ryan Ottley)
• Superman #50 (variant by Kaare Andrews)
• Batman #50 (variant by Chris Daughtry and Jim Lee)
• Grayson #18 (variant by Stephen Platt)
• Superman/Wonder Woman #27 (variant by Charlie Adlard)
• Wonder Woman #50 (variant by Massimo Carnevale)
• Batgirl #50 (variant by Kevin Nowlan)

March is going to be a big month for some of these comics anyway, as Batman #50 will mark the reinstatement of Bruce Wayne as Batman after 10 months away from the cowl. Likewise, issue #50 is when Superman finally goes back to normal after spending 10 months depowered and without his normal Kryptonian suit. The fact that there'll be movie themed variants for these titles only makes it all the more exciting.
