Frank Miller unveiled that he is interested in working on a World War II project with DC Comics. He made the announcement during a panel at CCXP 2016 which featured Miller, Paul Pope, and Rafael Grampa.
“I have a fixation by World War II and I’m talking to DC on a project with their heroes at that time,” Omelete reports.
After Frank Miller distanced himself from DC Comics, he has come back into the fold with Dark Knight III: The Master Race aided by Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert, and Klaus Janson.
While it’s unclear which characters Miller wants to work with for this possible World War II project, he’s always been a fan of Batman, writing some of his most iconic stories with Batman: Year One and <em>Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. It’s highly possible the story might involve the Bat in some way shape or form.
But there is also the possibility that it may involve Superman. At New York Comic Con, Miller talked about how he wants to explore Superman’s Jewish roots.
“He has a history in World War II, and I’d like to put him there again,” Miller said. “Superman needs to confront his Jewish roots, and I’d like to write that. I’d like to have him face a death camp.”
