DC Comics Hires Gay Writer For Batwoman Following Same-Sex Wedding Gaffe

DC Comics is wedging itself back into our good graces following that same-sex wedding drama attached to the Batwoman series that had the whole of the Internet talking last week. Marc Andreyko, an openly gay writer, has taken the reins of the franchise after J.H. Williams and W. Haden Blackman quit. 

"Its, it’s true: I’m the new writer of Batwoman! and, as i prepare for the interweb onslaught, a few things: i ADORE J.H Williams and Greg Rucka and Hayden Blackman and the great character they’ve created so lovingly,” Marc wrote in a post on Facebook. “I am taking this job very seriously and hope to do right by Kate, Maggie, Bette and the rest of the cast.”

The reasoning for DC's abrupt kibosh on Batwoman's wedding to her partner still remain unclear, with many fans wondering if the powers that be just didn't want to marry of the character quite yet.
