Last weekend at the D23 Expo in Anaheim CA DuckTales producers refused to commit one way or the other if Darkwing Duck would appear but today at San Diego Comic-ConDisney XD’s Panel confirmed that DuckTales is about to get DANGEROUS!
We do not know when exactly in the first season the Terror That Flaps In The Night and his daughter Gosalyn will appear, but one thing is certain, fans are excited for it. This would be the first time the two universes ever officially crossover despite the two sharing a few characters in Launchpad McQuack, and Roboduck.
“Because Launchpad appeared in DuckTales and we used Roboduck as the Superman character, the hero who gets all the glory as opposed to Darkwing, fans try to connect the two realities. They are two different universes in my book. We work in the alternate Duckiverse. Credit my comic book sensibilities. DW takes place in ‘A’ Ducktales universe but not the one you saw on TV. It’s an alternate universe with a different Launchpad like a DC ‘Elseworlds’ story. And thank you for watching.”
