With numerous upcoming movies, DC Comics have not forgotten its roots. The comic's giant recently released a new full teaser for its upcoming Convergence event set on April 2015.
To give fans a glimpse of what to expect on the next year's big event, DC Comics posted a poster that shows numerous DC superheroes. This photo gave comic's fans "a better idea of which Earths will be involved in the Multiverse-spanning summer event."
DC Entertainment comics publishing group announced last Monday the timeline for the upcoming Convergence event. The graphic book firm said the nine-week annual big event will kick off on April and will last up to May next year.
Fans of the 80-year old cartoon giant can expect a huge mash up of DC stories and characters that have been in the comic-book history for eight decades now. "It (Convergence) captures the full essence and scope of DC's incredible history and storytelling," Dan Didio, DC co-publisher said.
"There is a story and a character for every generation of DC Comics fan," he added. Aside from the known superheroes, Convergence will also be introducing a new 'big bad villain' who Telos, named after the Greek word which means "end" or "goal."
To prepare for the huge annual event, DC Comics will take a two-month break before the release of the 40 two-part Convergence mini-series. "Multiverse" has been a DC trademark and this word will be explored yet again in the upcoming comic-book series.
With the New 52 re-launch back in 2011, several questions about the events that happened in DC superheroes have blossomed and in this big event, DC plans to address and answer all the fans' questions.
"What we're really addressing is they all exist and have existed and exist within the framework of the New 52. Convergence is in many ways the most meta epic event we've done," DC co-publisher Jim Lee explained.
Write Jeff King will also be introduced in the upcoming summer 2015 event. King is currently penning the script and storyline of the Convergence. DC co-publisher claimed a new writer can give new angle and story style with the upcoming DC series.
"Because this involved so much deep lore and fiction from DC Comics, it was great to have someone come in with a fresh set of eyes to look at it and make sure that it's as open and accessible to all fans," DiDio says.
