Is This The Year Of Darth Vader Vs. Batman?S

An offhand comment from comic site Bleeding Cool has us all excited about the possibility of a crossover between Star Wars and the DC Universe. But are we reading too much into a vague, unsubstantiated rumor?

Rich Johnston's Five For 2010 included this interesting last line for the "Intercompany Crossovers" entry:

Of course much bigger news will be the DC Universe, Dark Horse and LucasFilm getting into bed for crossovers with epic proportions.

Dark Horse, of course, publish the Star Wars and Indiana Jones comic tie-ins, but we can't help but assume that it's the universe of Jedis and Sith that would be of more crossover interest with DC's superhero line. While Dark Horse has previously crossed over other properties with DC's superheroes (Aliens Vs. Predator Vs. Batman and Superman comes to mind as the best example), the number of cross-license Star Wars comics can be counted on the fingers of a man with no hand. Will 2010 be the year to change all of this, or is there something less likely (but, arguably, a better fit) going on? We have to admit, the idea of a Hellboy/Indiana Jones/Batman comic makes us very happy...
