Ridley also revealed the story will focus on the family of Lucious Fox. A largely unexplored element of Lucious Fox is his family, which is a family Ridley said, “has secrets, has kept secrets from one another.” Ridley went on to say this is a different dynamic than the Batman we’ve seen before.

The yet to be named Batman comic does not have a release date, but Ridley has a story in the upcoming Batman: The Joker War Zone #1.
