In what might surprise fans, DC Comics has announced that the next person to wear the Batman suit will be a black man, Timothy Fox — estranged son of Lucius Fox, Bruce Wayne’s business manager. If reports are to be believed it is said Fox will make his debut as Batman in the four-issue Future State: The Next Batman which comes out in January, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The new series will be penned by ‘12 Years a Slave’ screenwriter John Ridley, with art by Nick Derington and Laura Braga. The story will be set in future Gotham city, which is under the rule of the villainous Magistrate; Batman has been murdered and all masked vigilantes have been outlawed. Under rising suppression, Fox will emerge as the new saviour, reports The Guardian.

While no doubt this comes as a surprise, and an exciting move, Fox isn’t the only one to take over an iconic character. Another party to join would be Superman’s son, Jonathan Kent, while stepping in Wonder Woman’s suit would be Brazilian character Yara Flor, reports stuff.co.nz.
