** [[https://www.cbr.com/snyder-reveals-alternate-evil-batmen-dark-nights-metal/ Snyder has said]] that he had planned for many more Dark Multiverse Batmen but had to cut them from the story. These include a Punisher-style Batman, a Batman that delved into black magic, a Batman that merged with all his villains, one that merged with Gotham City itself and one that was accused of murdering his parents in the alleyway as a child and grew up as a patient in Arkham. This last one was later reused for ''ComicBook/BatmanLastKnightOnEarth''.

* RecycledScript: Multiversal threat. Earth sinking into darkness. EvilCounterpart ([[MesACrowd in this case a bunch of them]]) working for the BigBad. A cult/secret society of villains that worship said BigBad. Batman is trapped in a LotusEaterMachine. The story heavily involves the DCU's history, stretching all the way back to the Stone Age and especially involves DC's immortal characters. The bad guys are winning, and the heroes end up feeling more like a resistance than anything. Superman is forced to partake in a journey to outside of the Multiverse to figure out a way to defeat the Big Bad. The story dives into metatextual observations about characters and universes being individual stories. The origin of the Multiverse is explained, and the villain was a crucial part of its backstory, having committed a FaceHeelTurn in a desire to destroy. And finally, this is a CrisisCrossover that also ties into the writer's run on ''Batman''. Is this ''Dark Nights: Metal'' or ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis''? TropesAreNotBad, however, ''Dark Nights: Metal'' has enjoyed much more positive reception than ''Final Crisis'', due to a clearer narrative that is much less reliant on the reader having an encyclopaedic knowledge of DC's history. Taken further with Morrison himself co-writing a tie-in to the event.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Scott Snyder says he came up with the idea for ''Metal'' when thinking about a ''Hawkman'' run he wanted to do. Given Snyder's heavy use of noir-style narration and darker, violent stories, it's a shame that run never happened with Katar Hol, who is a space cop. Instead, ''Metal'' features Carter Hall, an archaeologist.

* PromotedFanboy: Look past accusations of reusing storylines from the man, Creator/ScottSnyder is clearly heavily influenced by Creator/GrantMorrison's [[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman run on]] ''[[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman]]''. Now Snyder gets to co-write with him on ''Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt'', a book Snyder created as an attempt to dispel any ArtistDisillusionment Morrison might have gone through and return him to writing for mainstream comics again.
