[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2432:]] Yesterday Rob Liefeld tweeted that a new Superman/Batman book would be announced at this week's New York Comic-Con with Bryan Hitch and Brad Meltzer attached, as well as another Superman book.

Now, Bryan Hitch has taken to his Twitter to clear up the confusion.

Hitch says that at one time he was attached to a new Superman/Batman but that never happened and was offered the new Man of Steel comic book with Scott Snyder as well.

There's a lot of misinformed stuff out there judging by the mails and tweets I've had these last two days do let me clarify a bit.

Ultron whatever it's called is long since finished, last year really. I WAS offered a potential Supes/Bats book but Brad didn't have time.

So Supes-Bars never got beyond a 'wouldn't it be nice if?' stage. Later Jim and Dan suggested Man of Steel with Scott Snyder which would...

... have been great as we adore each other but I'm committed to other projects so that didn't happen.

I have several projects on the go, all creator owned and that's where I'll be for the foreseeable future.

Liefeld also said that Legion Lost, Grifter, Frankenstein, and Blue Beetle will be announced to be canceled.

And regarding the artist on the Man of Steel comic book, it's currently thought that Jim Lee will be taking that on.
