Some key points:

Quote
Rucka pointed out that Kyle Baker’s Plastic Man series wasn’t cancelled because it was bad – it was cancelled because no one was buying it, even though it’s a fun book.


Quote
Asked how Superman Confidential and Batman Confidential fit into the larger DCU and continuity, Didio said that the titles were conceived because, looking back on the two characters’ respective histories, it’s hard to pinpoint that many specific, key events in their development as heroes. With these stories, readers will be able to see and collect key moments that are important in the characters’ lives and that matter in the larger scheme of the DCU.


Quote
In talking about Superman Returns, Didio said that he enjoyed it, and compared it to the first X-Men film, in that it was a good movie, and you can see the potential in the characters for further exploration. Asked if DC approved the major plot revelation in regards to Superman and Lois Lane, Didio said that Levitz was involved behind the scenes, and DC, not so much didn’t approve it as they did not veto it.


Quote
Jeff Smith was in the DC offices this week, Didio said, and has tow and a half issues of his Captain Marvel miniseries done, so DC is looking at a November or December release.

One more little thing:

Quote
Will General Zod be showing up again? “Which one?” Didio asked. “If you mean a General Zod with as a single, clear concept, kind of like the movie version of General Zod, then the answer is yes.”

Hopefully the many Zods on "Old Earth" have been retconned away. I also have a feeling that the pocket universe saga is gone as well.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Most likely.  I suspect the "Dru Zod" that Superman referred to in Up, Up, and Away will be a combination of the pre-crisis Zod with a number of Superman II and Birthright elements mixed in.

Unfortunately he wasn't played by Terrence Stamp in a major motion picture, so he lost the first place slot.
