While trolling through the #comics hashtag on twitter, @RBLeMoyne pointed me toward posts by @SpeedsterSite, a contributor over at GraphicSequential. In these tweets, Brandan (Speedster) refers to an interview he held with Dan Didio where the DC bigwig confirmed no Wally West or Donna Troy anywhere in the near future, citing their similarities to Barry and Diana respectively, and also Wally's kids in his case.
SpeedsterSite Brandanjust had an excellent talk with Dan Didio. EXCELLENT. when I get a chance I'll update you all. I'm much less angry nowSpeedsterSite Brandan
a lot of you will not like the quotes from Dan. And not just Wally fans. #DonnaSpeedsterSite Brandan
@bottlecitykanga I tried bringing Roy into the convo but he didn't bite. I agree with you completelySpeedsterSite Brandan
Yeah, I probably won't make it into this justice league panel so here goes some highlights of my conversation with Dan DidioSpeedsterSite Brandan
You will not be seeing Wally for the foreseeable future.SpeedsterSite Brandan
Dan stated that the Perez era TT were very difficult to deal with because of their age.SpeedsterSite Brandan
Dan specifically stated that Wally's kids were a big reason why he's off the board.SpeedsterSite Brandan
When asked why iris and jai were aged up in the first place, Dan admitted poor planningSpeedsterSite Brandan
Dan mentioned that Donna Troy is off the board as well, especially because her similarities to Diana are too great.SpeedsterSite Brandan
He said its hard and very difficult to accept but eventually the perez era will be gone.SpeedsterSite Brandan
On a lighter note, Dan assured me that many creators (specifically @jamesdrobinson) are definitely involved in the future of DCSpeedsterSite Brandan
When kyle rayner's new book was brought up, Dan said it's much easier to branch out with green lantern than most titlesSpeedsterSite Brandan
Dan also said that they realize they are pushing the limits of the bat books and that they may be "dwindled"SpeedsterSite Brandan
we were able to record some of our conversation so hopefully the audio isn't horrible.Also, he gave me two poker chips. Lol
Obviously these quotes are second-hand until the interview gets posted and I'm unfamiliar with Brandan's writing, but it seems fairly legit. Looks grim for Donna and Wally fans.
