DC Comics Batman writer Scott Snyder recently participated in a fan QnA on reddit where he answered a question in regards to the death of Bruce Wayne and also commented on which characters he would like to write.
His answer for "How do you think Bruce Wayne dies?":
Every writer's Bruce Wayne has his own death, I guess right? They all die differently. Our version (and this is just ours) figures out a way to clone himself when he's older. He initiates a program whereby a new bruce wayne clone wakes up every 27 years. the young bruce wakes with the memories only up to the point the bat(s) comes through the window. The old bruce welcomes him to the cave, clears out his own stuff in a furnace, and the new bruce faces his own gotham and designs his own cave. own enemies, own city, etc. we showed this (me and sean murphy) in our Detective #27 story, too. Sean and I have plans to return to this story sometime in the near future.
Snyder was also asked if he could pick a Marvel Comics character, who would it be?
Captain America. Have a big story I've always wanted to do!
Snyder also said he would like to write Wonder Woman if given the chance with Greg Capullo and added his take on Wonder Woman would be:
my take (and I have one) would give her a big role in the dcu while building on what azz and cliff did so wonderfully. i'd like to see her with a base, a cast, a mission. I have a big story in mind. If I'd had time, I'd have pushed to do it. Hoping to build in time soon, though I'm excited to see what David and Meredith do ,too!
