Did Jim Lee Drop a Batman Casting Hint?


Finally, the worlds of two of my fan passions — Batman and Howard Stern — collide.  ANYWAY…

This is probably nothing, regardless, it is sort of interesting.

Check out this Instagram post by DC Comics CCO/Publisher Jim Lee and pay attention to what he’s reading…

A post shared by Jim Lee (@jimlee) on

In case you didn’t realize it, he’s reading Howard Stern’s (Hey Now!) new book, HOWARD STERN COMES AGAIN (which is damn good by the way) — and he just so happens to stop on the page where Howard writes about his interview with Robert Pattinson (click here to check out the full interview).

Out of ALL the interviews that are included in that book, why show that one in that post?  JL is either epically trolling fans or is subtly making an announcement — though I’m not sure that DC has much say on who is cast as Batman over at Warner Bros.

What do you think?  Is Jim Lee trolling or not?  And is Howard Stern the best interviewer in the history of interviews or what?!  Post your thoughts in the comments section below! – Bill “Jett” Ramey
