After heavy anticipation and foreshadowing of the event from action comics and Superman, Event Leviathan is released on August 2019 written by Brian Michael Bendis. An seven issue slowburn mini-series that starts with a villain named Leviathan who gets rid of all the intelligence agencies in the DC universe, with plans to carry out a new world order and change the status quo of the DC universe.
After a mixed response by fans but beloved response by critics, DC later plans to expand Event Leviathan into 2020, which started with Event Leviathan Dawn then later planned books with Event Leviathan: Checkmate and another book called Manhunters: The lost history. However, after the pandemic stopped the release of those books and the sudden firing of co-publisher Dan-Didio, DC comics unsolicited those latter books and didn’t specify when they would come back, Action Comics and Superman has subsequently made little reference to Leviathan since then.
With news that the writer Brian Michael Bendis is leaving the Superman comics soon and a new editorial and publisher staff following the Warner Bros. Shakeup of DC comics, will it still be possible we will ever see Event Leviathan return to DC comics.
