Its from the Comic Book Resources boards, but there have been no `hints/leaks' as far as I can tell, just wild speculation on the part of a group of fans who seam to think Morrison's characterisation of Batman is off (they've actually spent just as much time arguing over which James Bond movie the last issue was riffing on). I think they as readers maybe: just didn't pay enough attention to the character development events in the new crisis or 52; don't get flash-backs/forwards as literary device; or even more importantly, just have never read any of Denis O'Neil's stuff (clearly Morrison's chief influence in terms of his Batman). I dont think Batman's an imposter. But I guess only time will tell. GM does tend to write some pretty wacky stuff

It's been made very clear from the start that Batman coming out of "Infinite Crisis" was not going to be acting as he did for the last several years. And as "52" showed us, Bruce Wayne has changed who Batman is and how he operates. First with the Ten Eyed Monster and then in Nanda Parbat. Morrison even said that he wanted the "Hairy chest" version from the 70's and not who he had become in the 90's and the last six years. This was also one of the selling points for Paul Dini coming on board.
