They’ve made it through suicide missions to Santa Prisca, rooftop rendezvous, swordfights and baby mama drama in Khadym, and temptation from goddesses in alternate dimensions — so unless something unforeseen even crazier than those aforementioned obstacles comes their way (::knocks on wood::), Bat and Cat should be all set to tie the knot in Batman 50.

And then in Batman #48, perhaps the engaged couple’s greatest threat yet, the Clown Prince of Crime himself:
From the official Batman #48 synopsis:
“THE BEST MAN” part one! Batman and Catwoman decide it might be better to elope rather than go through some big, stodgy wedding ceremony, but no sooner do they put their marriage on the fast track than The Joker appears! And when The Joker kidnaps the Caped Crusader, will he give his old foe a piece of his mind or bash in his brains?
Batman #44, a touching tribute to Catwoman past and present showed Selina’s preferred method of wedding dress obtainment and highlighted Batman and Catwoman’s tumultuous and ever-changing relationship over the years; we’re looking forward to seeing how King builds the narrative towards the big day itself.
Is Batman really going to get married in full-costume though? Are you looking forward to Bat and Cat’s big day? Sound off in the comments.
