Diggle To Join Green Arrow #25, Superman/Wonder Woman To Target A Female Audience And No Comment On Ben Affleck – The DC Panel At Toronto Fan Expo

Justice LeagueDiana McCallum reports for Bleeding Cool from Toronto Fan Expo.

Just got back from the DC panel. There was no new information regarding Justice League Canada that we didn't cover already this morning but here are a few things the panel told us:

Jeff Lemire said that the Dark City tie-in in Green Arrow #25 will explore Oliver's past, including the first meeting of Green Arrow and Batman. Fans of the Arrow TV show should also check out Green Arrow #25 for the first comic book appearance of the character Diggle who was created for the show.

Lemire also said that with the conclusion of the Rot World storyline Animal Man and Swamp Thing will no longer cross over so the two titles can now develop separately.

Superman/Wonder Woman illustrator Tony Daniel described the upcoming book as one of DC's first attempts to target a female audience, by having more romance mixed in with the title's drama and action.

A question for the panel about their thoughts on the Ben Affleck announcement was met with "no comment". Is it going to be Jack Black on Green Lantern all over again?

Lee Bermejo was there to talk about his new Vertigo title, Suiciders, and described it as 'L.A. Noir mixed with Mad Max'.

As always, an audience question about Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain was answered with a resounding no from John Cunningham, there are still no plans to bring them back.

But keep asking!

Eddie Berganza and Brian Cunningham were also on the panel…
