SYFY’s Metal Crush Mondays are off to a kickass start! Not only is the weekly movie screening teaming up with metalheads from the music and entertainment worlds, it’s breaking news about the future of metal-adjacent genre projects. Few of these are more explicitly throwing up the horns than DC Comics’ Dark Nights: Metal and its follow-up Dark Nights: Death Metal. Now fans can find out a little bit more about what’s in store.
During an interview, Black Veil Brides’ Andy Black mentioned the latter comic crossover series when the subject came up – is DC reaching out to real metal musicians for potential comic collaborations? Revealed during a conversation with SYFY WIRE’s Whitney Moore (which also featured Pustulus Maximus and the Berserker Blother of GWAR), the team-up is just as exciting as the Lake Placid screening it accompanies.
Take a look:
“I’ll just say this,” Black said during SYFY WIRE’s debut Metal Crush Monday interview, “I’m hoping to be involved in that in some capacity moving forward…I might, in some way, be involved in a small tangential way with that whole line coming up.”
Black goes on to mention series artist Greg Capullo’s bonafides as a metalhead, which comes across in the crossover series. “You see Batman with a guitar,” Black said. “It’s something as a little kid I was doing, drawing, and making up: the idea that Batman was in a band.” DC fans definitely deserve a Justice League battle of the bands, right?
Metal Crush Mondays air on SYFY every Monday in August, while DC’s Dark Nights: Death Metal comics have been releasing over the summer after a coronavirus-driven delay. Fans can find more interviews on SYFY WIRE’s YouTube page and extended Metal Crush Monday conversations on the Metal Crush podcast.
