New FPS Inspired by Batman: Gotham City Impostors http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=32349

DC and Warner Bros. announced earlier this week that Monolith Productions is developing “Gotham City Impostors” -- a first person shooter based in the world of Batman.  Featuring maps showing off different parts of Gotham City, players create their own characters and decide to join up with the “Bats” or the “Jokerz”.  The game will be released on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC platforms.

“Superman Beyond” http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2011/05/12/announcing-superman-beyond-with-a-cover-by-dustin-nguyen/

In August, there will be a “Superman Beyond #0” one-shot that features the Superman from the “Batman Beyond” universe.  “An aging Kal-El is called back into action to stop a villain more powerful than he’s ever faced - all while his own super powers are starting to fade.”  It will be written by Tom DeFalco, with Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema providing the artwork.
