This year Batman is 75 and DC is going all out for the Cape Crusader. As a part of Batman 75 so far DC has released animated shorts, and has plans for Batman to be featured in all three of this years weekly events, but that's not all.

Just as we did with the Five Years Later 3-D covers, this article will be updated as DC releases more covers.
I really like these covers, and what I love the most about them is the classic feel to them. Superman is in his Pre-New 52 costume in every cover he is in (minus Superman/Wonder Woman) as is Batman. I would have loved to have seen Wonder Woman in her classic costume as well though. Just take a look at Cliff Chiang's Batgirl #33 cover with Oracle and Black Canary from the Birds of Prey in the cape.
