Dan DiDio Teases ‘The Single Most Controversial Scene’ in his DC Comics Tenure

DC Comics has announced its initial plans for “Rebirth,” and following CBR’s initial interview with DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio has made his thoughts known, via a video interview with ComicVine. Notably, DiDio teased that May’s “DC Universe: Rebirth” #1 one-shot, which kicks off the “Rebirth” refresh of DC Comics’ core publishing line, contains what he believes is likely the “single most controversial scene” in his 14 years at DC Comics.

“I think you’ll be extraordinarily surprised and excited by what’s in there,” DiDio said. And it’s going to have what I believe is probably the single most controversial scene in DC Comics in all the time that I’ve been there.”

Given some of the controversial stories in DiDio’s time at DC Comics — including “Identity Crisis,” “Countdown to Infinite Crisis” and the New 52 reboot — it’s a statement that will surely spark speculation.

The “DC Universe: Rebirth” one-shot, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by artists including Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Gary Frank and Phil Jimenez, is scheduled for release on May 25.
