I don't think they are going to bring Bruce back as a Black Lantern, since he's not dead, but Black Hand does have an interest in him since he is trapped in that weird rebirth cycle thingy I mentioned in the first post. I think they could still have a Batman Black Lantern though from the body Superman discovered in Final Crisis, that was Bruce's body just his soul part was transferred to the past or whatever. It seems kind of confusing. Lots of fan speculation before Blackest Night that there would be a Black Lantern Batman. I don't think it's going to happen.
I haven't really read that much of a backlash against Dick as Batman...most people seem to be really enjoying Batman and Robin. I'm just curious about Bruce because nothing has really been announced yet. I guess they're going to play this out the rest of the year before doing anything with Bruce.
