Posted by inferiorego (24734 posts) - - Show Bio

Still here in room 6DE, and the Trinity War panel will begin at 1:45. We'll be updating you guys live for the entire panel.

1:45- Here we go! John Root is promoting the DC app. Talking about the Justice League cars in Petco Park. John Cunningham is moderating this one. Geoff Johns is on the panel, Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes, and Brian Cunningham.

1:50- Video first. Geoff Johns narrates. Gives us the backstory of the JL and the JLA. Each Justice League team is explained as well as their roles in the DCU. Behind the JL war, "it was all orchestrated by the super-villains and the heroes lose and the villains win." It will lead into Forever Evil.

2:00- Geoff says he knew they were going to come to some point where they needed to deal with Pandora. Lemire wanted to make it a Justice League story. We see another large image for the last 3-parts of Trinity War. Each team has their own guide according to Johns. "How can the villains exploit the Justice League." He wanted the heroes to lose faith in Superman. Pandora cover for issue 2 shown. It's fantastic. Interiors for issue 2 shown. Ray Fawkes says issue two Pandora is confronted by the Secret Society. Issue 3 cover is shown.

2:05- We see the covers to the next issue of Phantom Stranger. Now Ray says in Constantine #5 John will face off against Billy Batson/Shazam. We're seeing some interiors. Constantine is stealing Shazam's powers. Forever Evil comes out September 4th. All the villains are side-by-side. When the villains get a chance to take over the world, they don't agree with each other. Forever Evil will pit villain against villain. David Finch is doing the interiors. Sinestro and Black Adam become buddies, according to Johns. There's a big twist to this that hasn't been spoiled yet. Tie-ins in October coming Forever Evil: Arkham War by Peter Tomasi. A.R.G.U.S. is also a tie-in, and finally, Rogues Rebellion on October 16th. Discussing Superman from JL 22. Wonder Woman believes the cause of Superman's rage was because of the box, and Batman believe it's scientific.

2:10- Jeff Lemire says they wanted a lot more characters to appear in this. Swamp Thing and Dr Fate will make brief appearances. Johns says Vibe "nobody's favorite hero" is a key component to this event. Onto Justice League Dark 22, on sale July 24th. Jeff says they don't really belong in this world but they keep getting sucked in. His favorite part was to keep having to depower Zatanna. She'll really let loose in Trinity War. The interiors are fantastic. Ray says Deadman may seem this as his chance to be a real hero.

2:15- Jeff says the tension between Zatanna and John comes to a head in here. Geoff says there will be big reveals and a lot of stories wrap up here. "We're really going to take it to the next level." Now, it's Q&A time. What's up with the Question? Geoff explains who the Trinity of Sin are. The Question doesn't know who he is. Sometimes things pop in his head and he has to solve them. Right now, this question is so powerful and strong, that he thinks if he answers it, he'll find out his identity. There are plans for him in the future.

2:20- Deathstroke? Geoff says he'll be in Forever Evil and ARGUS, Matt Kindt is writing that. What's Nightwing's involvement? Jeff says Wally West becomes Nightwing. Laughs a plenty. Geoff says read it. Will we see characters from cancelled book in this? Geoff says Firestorm is in it. Ray Fawkes says Pandora and the idea of rebooting the universe will be in the series eventually. Geoff says we'll find out what's up with the box. Booster Gold plans? Geoff says they love him but there's not much, except in Forever Evil #1.

2:25- Where's Joker with Forever Evil? Geoff says Joker is mentioned in the first issue but we'll find out more later. Earth-2 and Dr Fate is mentioned... What's up with that? Brian Cunningham says we'll find out more about that in Justice League Dark #23.

2:35- Is all this leading to another event? Geoff says that Forever Evil is going to be the big one. Martian Manhunter question. Jeff Lemire says he has huge plans for him next year. How does Green Lantern work in the Trinity War? Geoff says the only GL involved is Simon Baz. "OA doesn't care about what's happening on Earth. However, Hal will be back in Justice League." There will be no other colored lanterns in Trinity War. Jeff makes mention that another color lantern may appear in one of his books. Panel over... bye bye

Yeeesssss, man i'm so excited for the DC Universe at the mo.

#12 Edited by Lvenger (20008 posts) - - Show Bio

Why is Sinestro showing up? I thought he was going into exile. The team up with Black Adam had better be good.

Awesome! Bane and Constantine sweet!

Shazam in a Constantine comic? I don't know where I should cry or just hang my self.

Wait did he say Dr Fate? I thought he was an Earth 2 character?

#16 Posted by DeathandGrim (2048 posts) - - Show Bio

Well... if they pull a flashpoint on me and create plot elements (which made little sense) for the hell of it

Yea /wrists

Apparently he is supposed to be in JLD 23. At least that's what was reported on CBR.

#19 Edited by Jayc1324 (12299 posts) - - Show Bio

Forever evil doesn't sound interesting to me. I don't want books about villians

#20 Edited by EscGamer (113 posts) - - Show Bio

well my question was about the joker in forever evil, for obvious reasons he isn't part of the society but let's be honest, joker loves to play and hates when he isn't invited to the party. well sounds like he'll be around a bit soo i'm satisfied for now

Like crossing over from Earth 2 or just another version?

No idea. All that was stated was he would be in JLD 23. Here's what CBR said on it:

http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=46750

Editor Brian Cunningham said readers will find out more about Doctor Fate if they pick up "Justice League Dark" #23. "He's in there," said Lemire.

Multiple Sources are always a good thing, @inferiorego.

I much prefer the Justice League without a Lantern, but it'll be interesting to see how/why Hal comes back.

I wonder if Dr. Fate will be Kent Nelson.

Also Animal Man & Swap Thing have small roles in Trinity War? I wonder what they'll be doing. Solicits say a new JLD team will come about. I wouldn't mind Animal Man or Swamp Thing.

Zatanna vs Constantine should be interesting. Hopefully Zee wins. I'm really starting to hate how Constantine is somewhat Batman with magic. The guy seems to always win.

The CBR guy was right in front of me during the panel. I don't remember his name, but he's super nice. Don't tell Gman I said that.

Looking forward to see what happens in the Justice League books. & Forever Evil. SDCC is getting me excited for all sorts of things.

#30 Posted by JamDamage (1114 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the idea of Sinestro and Black Adam. Both are similar charaters now that Sinestro is somewhat of an anit-hero then a hero. The 2 of them can fuck shit up.

#31 Edited by Avenging-X-Bolt (13186 posts) - - Show Bio

Hal's rejoining the JL? that'll be a stretch

Honestly, I was hoping that Joker played a role in Forever Evil. His mastery at chaos would have made the story interesting.

I don't want to see the joker in 5 years. I got joker fatigue.
