DC Comics teamed up with the New York Times’ George Gene Gustines to spoil the story behind Batman #50 and answer the question of whether or not Batman and Catwoman will actually get married.
DC Comics has been highly touting the story line. They’ve even issued Wedding invitations to the story and turned it into a mini-event comic with a number of Wedding prelude issues focusing on a number of characters in the Batman family including Ra’s al Ghul, Batgirl, the Riddler, Joker, Harley Quinn, Anarky, Red Hood, Robin, Hush, and Nightwing.
DC Comics and a number of artists also teamed up with multiple comic book shops for exclusive variant covers for the wedding issue. It’s become a huge event book for DC Comics.
Tom King Responds
Tom King retweeted the following tweets encouraging people to block those who are attempting to spoil the story or at the very least mute the words Batman and Catwoman so you won’t find out what happens in Batman #50 before you get the chance to read the actual issue this coming Wednesday.
So it looks like people are already spoiling Batman 50. Block all the usual suspects. I have. We all know the sites that trade in clickbait and spoilery headlines. Good luck fellow nerds.

King would go on to issue his own Tweet regarding the situation noting that he’s simultaneously “pissed about things and excited about other things.”
Im pissed about things and excited about other things. I have no idea how to comment on anything without spoiling everything.
Batman 50 is still out Wednesday. I’m incredibly proud of the issue; I hope you pick it up. You have questions; the answers are there.

Do you think DC Comics should have teamed up with the New York Times to spoil their highly touted storyline?
