Looks like DC is trying to tie in "Batman: The Dark Knight" closer with "Detective Comics" now.
I still think that Joe Chill is going to be revealed to have been a Talon, or if not that, some kind of connection with the Court.
Also Buzzfeed conducts an interview with Geoff Johns regarding Batman: Earth One.
Apparently Bruce is written as a bit of a dick as a young man according to the interviewer who read the graphic novel and Alfred is "bad ass" (even though I've always considered previous incarnations of Alfred as being bad ass). Still, I'm looking forward to this book, have been since it's initial announcement. I just hope that Johns writes this Batman differently than the Batman in Justice League.
