DC Announces Date For Expensive “Bombshell Announcements”

Well, at least we now know when DC is planning to release info about the big changes expected to their DC Universe line following the conclusion of Flashpoint. The LA Times has announced that both Geoff Johns and Jim Lee will be appearing at its “Hero Complex Film Festival” on June 11th to drop “bombshell announcements about the future of Superman and the entire DC Universe.” Tickets for the event, which also includes a double feature of Superman The Movie and Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, along with a Q&A with Donner, cost $45, meaning that – let’s face it – most of us will be following along on the internet.

A few weeks ago, Bleeding Cool told you that DC Comics was bringing you something called Dark. And illustrated it with a black rectangle. Because I had no other image to show.
I still don’t. But I do have the first title for whatever Dark may be.
Justice League Dark.
This is post-Flashpoint, folks.
We’re talking an A-list creative team as well.
But whatever Dark is, it won’t stop at Justice League Dark. What’s next?
Just no one mention Dark Avengers, Dark X-Men or Dark Wolverine though okay? Keep it schtum.
We heard the news earlier that Johns and Lee are set to make a big announcement come June, and that Superman is tied to that.
Over at Bleeding Cool, they have been getting some info on DC going "Dark."
Now, their current info is that post-Flashpoint there will be a "Justice League Dark" with some pretty hefty names attached, though presently unknown.
Lee and Johns?
No idea.
I think it's safe to say that something big happens with Flashpoint, as DC has solicited only FP #5 for the last week of August - and Johns is keeping mum on what happens post-fp.
Just how big?
Assuming Bleeding Cool is correct and we are getting a "Justice League Dark" - could the entire DCU be going "Dark."
Dark Superman, Dark(er) Batman, Dark Flash? Or Superman Dark, Batman Dark(er) and Flash Dark --as Marvel already coined "Dark" before their titles, I suppose, would be more correct.
Maybe some of the alternate versions of heroes that are currently "living" in Flashpoint survive and make their way to the "regular" DCU -- and, maybe, some of the "regular" heroes, don't.
We'll find out sooner -- or later...
