thats clearly Sheablo !
a theory could be that diablo has taken eat as his host. and that is why azmodan is talking to leah as if he was diablo.
It could also indicate why diablo has a female bay in the fan art section.
another theory, if you look at the first cinematic released. Diablo has 2 additional heads; he has morphed into uber diablo using mephisto and baal.
what might be the reason for this, is that Leah potentially has some sort of nephalem power.
I'm thinking it's the 'Leah possession' idea. It's really quite an interesting direction to take visually.
Not to be an ass, but the first afirmation was completely dumb, dont do it.Diablo is a demon that loves to live like a parasite in other bodies in mortal world. If he managed to control the body of chick in Diablo 3 cinematic, it could be her. *shrug*
They use mortals to walk on the world because they cant get here otherwise, all the prime evils actually possesed someone, not only diablo. Take a read about the soulstones, why they were created and how diablo first possesed the son of leoric.
People take stupidity to a whole new level when they sit in front of a computer.

If you Look at some other concept arts of him he doesn't look THAT feminine... Will post link az soon as I find it
Ouch, another artist that is allowed to rape established classics without any consequences.....
It's diablo, it's the same demon that appears at the end of the d3 trailer, which blizzard confirmed is diablo.
heres the video in question, 1:44 is confirmed by blizzard to be diablo, which is obviously the same demon in the picture just a full body shot where we can see some of the more "feminine" features.
i'm going with the Leah possession theory.
but the developers said at blizzcon that diablo can't be defined by our mortal anatomy and that we have never seen diablos "true form"

Sexification of main characters is an unfortunately common theme in games, movies, and comics. And has been for a while.
If evil could have a gender, I see it perfectly fine to be female.
Sexy Evil, what else to want?
That is just horrible looking, what a weird direction, but this is from the people who said they never had any intention of honoring the series, they had that fat turd on GameTrailers or whatever showing off the slapstick abilities of the Witch Doctor and going on about how they never intended to stay true to the feel of the universe and wanted to carve out their own thing.
I was surprised by his honesty, given the gushing lies thus far, this just proves it.
Well, I'm still playing it, but I've divested from the story and atmosphere at this point.
That's a paraphrased answer in the Open Q&A at Blizzcon.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment

And if her mother is possessed, it could be enough of a reason for Leah to have visions related to her. And while this would still be a somewhat predictable story, it does piss me off far less than Leah becoming the new Diablo.
Which is silly considering how many times the Prime Evils have referred to each other as "brothers". Clearly they identify with a gender.At Blizzcon, Kevin Martens (Lead content designer on D3) stated that Diablo is not constrained by our human gender stereotypes, and may take multiple forms. We have never actually seen the true form of Diablo.
