Here's an excerpt from his interview with ComicVine.com...
BRIAN BUCCELLATO: It's a few months. Things have settled down as Batman has gone underground and the Regime is in full effect. Superman sits on his metaphoric throne, as tyrant. He DOES still have that infernal Batman itch to scratch and won't rest until he KNOWS Batman is out of the picture.
CV: What's the status of the heroes and the world after all the magical business in Year Three?
BB: Batman is underground and hasn't been heard from. His resistance has dwindled to a pathetic few. Superman is on top and the status quo is getting closer to the video games. But like I said, Superman is NOT resting easy because he knows it's only a matter of time before Batman resurfaces with one of his damned crazy plans.
CV: What can we expect with this being the year of the Greek Gods?
BB: Expect to see Zeus, Hera, Hercules and a host of other characters. And punches will be thrown. Many of them at Superman's face.
Meanwhile, IGN.com also interviewed Brian Buccellato
Buccellato: If you go back to year three, the plan was seeded when Hippolyta asked Hera for help reviving Wonder Woman and Superman. I don't want to give away more than that. Sorry!
IGN: How are you choosing to portray the gods and their powers? How big a threat do they pose to Superman's army? Can they even be fought by conventional means?
Buccellato: Wonder Woman is Zeus' daughter in the Injustice World. Ares has already been in the game and book... so the Greek Gods are definitely able to interact on a corporeal level. If you think Ares is a handful... imagine the might of Hera, Zeus, and Hercules.

How long do you think the upcoming "Truth" arc in the comics will impact on continuity of Superman comic books?
A quarter of you think the "Truth" arc will only last a few months. I'm inclined to agree.
Sadly, there are almost a quarter who couldn't care less... and then there are those who are totally confused. I feel your pain.

Gene Luen Yang is a Chinese American comic book writer. His work is critically acclaimed. And he has a reputation for bringing diversity into his work. That diversity of talent and content is a stated goal that DC has had for years. Frankly, the company has struggled to deliver on that promise. But Yang makes good in his very first panel.
Clark has Jimmy try Vietnamese coffee at a food truck. Then says he frequents the vendor (partly because they do not stay in the same place for long, a reference to his need to keep a low profile) but he also makes it a point to mention that the owners live down the street from him.
This panel says a lot. Clark opens himself up to exotic things, but he also supports his neighborhood. He is both a global citizen, and a man firmly entrenched in his (American) community. Not unlike Yang and his character in the book, American Born Chinese.
As far as the new status quo, Clark's life has been drastically altered. Many disagree with the change (I don't blame them) but it may accomplish some positive things. Three of the four characters in this story are Clark, Jimmy, and Lois. The pressure put on Clark will create a need for a support structure. Many have argued that he needs Lois (and to a lesser degree Jimmy) to gain a window into his humanity. If this is true, he may now need them simply to keep a grasp on it.
There are fears that this story will effectively erase the Clark Kent persona. If everyone knows his secret identity, then what good is it? Others fear he will lose touch, since he is at odds with Lois. But this story hints to the contrary.
