I wasn’t originally planning on attending Thursday’s DC Now panel at Comic-Con International, but my feet were tired and I figured I might learn something. It was mainly an informational panel with writers talking about the book they’re working on.
Here’s my terribly incomplete live-tweet coverage.
DC Now moderator says they came up with name for panel & were quite surprised when “someone else” used it.
Jimmy Palmiotti: “I was in the Twilight panel, that’s why I was delayed.”
Batman: Earth One. @geoffjohns describes as “rollback Batman” who doesn’t know what he’s doing & does it for wrong reasons.
Justice League year 1 was about what the team IS. Year 2 about what it SHOULD be. @geoffjohns
Why is new GL carrying a gun? “These rings run out of energy, don’t they?”
Third Army premise (eliminate free will) sounds like Darkseid and the anti-life equation.
Scott Snyder: in the past, the Joker hasn’t really gone after Barbara, Jason or Dick PERSONALLY. Now he will.
(At this point I left to go to another panel that I really wanted to catch. SpeedsterSite was following another liveblog, though.)
@SpeedsterSite: Buccellato says Flash #0 will explore who Barry is, “and why he’s the guy who always needs to do the right thing.”
@SpeedsterSite: Buccellato: “And there is no Wally in this run at all, I’m sorry.” Crowd boos.
