From Bleeding Cool:

Action Comics- The only other title (along with Justice League) that will start out in the past. The first arc will detail Superman’s public debut. At this point, Dan Didio went on a tangent to explain that DC wanted to let go of the past and move forward. Any changes in continuity would be addressed in-story as needed, but that they really didn’t want to get bogged down so these reveals would be gradual and as they make sense in the story. There is a document in the DC offices that fleshes out exactly what has and hasn’t happened in the New 52 Universe. As an example, the Death of Superman storyline has occurred. See Batgirl below for another example.

Yep, sounds like they know what they're doing. Just don't wanna tell us.

I like the idea we might be getting an all action orientated Superman who is actually doing Superman stuff so if that is their intention i'll be perfectly happy. I want to read a more confident and proactive hero for a change.

But I treat everything to do with promotion coming from DC execs with some suspicion and cynicism, these comments are especially chuckle worthy:

Batwing- Based on fan interest in this character from Batman Incorporated, DC wanted to give the character an ongoing title. (Eh?)

Red Hood and the Outlaws- One of the most requested characters for a book is Jason Todd as an anti-hero. (Errr...)

Red Lanterns- Fan interest in the Red Lantern Corps has been huge leading to DC giving the Corps an ongoing title. (Err, Yeah. Right...)
