To make it perfectly clear, the Siegel/Shuster heirs only own the things established about Superman in Action Comics #1. This means that they'll get the rights to his entire origin of Krypton (I'm not sure if this includes the Kents, but it involves the whole "dying scientists from Krypton sends his infant to earth" story), his alter-ego as Clark Kent, Lois Lane and the Daily Planet. Every element of Superman that was introduced after AC #1 remains DC property.

Judd Winick on Catwoman and Batwing? Interesting, just a shame he won't be on JLI after his awesome work on Generation Lost. Also, I don't get why Snyder and Daniel get switched for Batman and Detective Comics. My only guess is that Batman is the main book and needs to be actually well written, which is why they said 'Fuck you' to Daniel and got Snyder, but still...
For the rest it's great to see Morrison on Action Comics (if true) but I'm a bit surprised that Cornell, after his great Luthor arc on AC, won't be writing a big book. In fact, while the concept of Demon Knights sounds awesome, I hope he won't get 'shafted' too much.
Giffen on an OMAC book? I'm curious.
