This past weekend at WonderCon saw DC Comics release details and images for their upcoming Rebirth event.
One of the bigger and most surprising items to come out of the announcement is that DC Comics is going to reveal the Joker’s name.
In a previous issue of Justice League, Batman asked the all-knowing Mobius Chair what is the name of the Joker. The reader wasn’t given the answer, but Batman replied with, “That’s not possible.”
Following the WonderCon announcement, IGN caught up with Geoff Johns who offered a further update about the Joker name reveal.
“We are going to find out what he heard in Darkseid War,” confirmed Johns. “And it’s going to lead to something else.”
When we first reported on the Joker reveal, our post went viral reaching nearly a million people. Many of the fans mentioned they don’t want to know the name of the Joker. Johns comments on that as well.
“But the answer probably won’t be an answer that people predict,” Johns teased with a big smile.
DC Comics “Rebirth” kicks off May 25th with an 80-page special written by Johns priced at $2.99.
