Superman and Lois Lane will no longer be married following the DC Comics relaunch, the publisher has hinted.

Co-publisher Dan DiDio did nothing to dispel rumours that the marriage would not exist in the new continuity during an interview with NBC New York.

"Let's just say it's being reexamined," he said, "because it's something that I think is something that is so valuable to the character's story that you really want to explore all facets of it. Not just as it exists currently."

DiDio continued: "I think what you're going to see is a lot of big changes for Superman. We really went back to the core of the character. And more importantly, we got somebody in Grant Morrison, who's really taking the character and reinventing him so you feel a real contemporary tone, a really contemporary time, but still staying true to the core.

"I think it's so important for us to make sure Superman stays as relevant today as he did when he first was created back in the '30s."

Morrison, who will be writing the renumbered Action Comics #1, recently spoke about his plans for the character.

Legendary Crisis on Infinite Earths artist George Perez is writing the sister title Superman, with reimagined Supergirl and Superboy series also on the way.

Lois Lane and Clark Kent were originally married in the 1996 Superman: The Wedding Album one-shot.
