Possible spoilers:

Darkseid hit him with the omega effect, which sent Bruce back in time, leaving Gotham without a Batman. Throughout the series of Battle for The Cowl, Dick struggles with deciding to become Batman in Bruce's absence. Eventually he decides to do it and takes Damian as his Robin.

But as per the New 52 reboot, it's not really certain if it's still in continuity or not. Hope this helped.

And then Batman returned and formed Batman, Inc. a world wide organization of Batmen in every country, Bruce Wayne took over as the Bat-General being the leading Batman of the World, then left Dick to be Batman in Gotham, When Flashpoint ends, Bruce is now the Batman of Gotham (still head of Batman, Inc) and Dick has returned as Nightwing

Far as I know, the Batman and Green Lantern stuff are still canon. Superman and Wonder Woman... not so much.

Ah, good. Battle for The Cowl is one of my favorite Batman events.
