Fashionably Geek posted up an image of a group of Batman cosplayers who were spotted at Wonder Con 2011. I'd like to think that these guys didn't know one another, and happened to simply stumble into each other. Either way, it's pretty cool to see the evolution of the costume over the years in the form of cosplaying. Would you do a bit of cosplaying as Batman? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

This all came about from Amy Reeder stating at WonderCon that we won't see her art in Batwoman until February 2012. From this, and knowing that Reeder starts her arc from issue 4, Dustin shrewdly deduced that we can expect 'Batwoman' #1 in November- but keep your eyes on DC's solicitations in August to see if this prediction reigns true.
Now, as far as actual delays…

On Friday, during the premiere of the Green Lantern: Emerald Knights film at Wonder Con, Bruce Timm announced what the next planned film will be for the DC Animated line. The current working title is Justice League: Doom.
The story is loosely based off of the Justice League of America: Tower of Babel storyline and was written by Dwayne McDuffie shortly before his death.
The original story focused on Batman's knowledge of all of the superheroes weaknesses and that information is stolen…
