I'm back!
Well, I already put up sources for various lore writings and I find it pointless to link to each specific page. This was merely a video~lore association, as just rewriting the entire lore here is simply a time-consuming action since you can already find it on the mentioned sites :p.

Thank you for the suggestion!

It is yet to be confirmed by blizzard.
There was a statue sold by blizzard that was described by blizzard as "depecting a barbarian standing on the defeated Diablo". It showed a DIII Barbarian standing on the face of the monster we saw in the trailer.

EDIT: It was this or a very similar statue:

Diablo III "Overthrown" Statue Pre-Orders Open
06-18-2009
The Diablo III premium statue "Overthrown" depicts a mighty barbarian atop the conquered Diablo, shouting towards the High Heavens in vicious triumph. It was first unveiled as a grey prototype at San Diego Comic-Con 2008, and after a year and a half of continued development, is now being made available for pre-order.

Standing at a massive 18" (457.2mm) high, hand-cast in high-quality polystone, and painted to exacting standards, each piece is individually finished with a unique edition number. To see brand-new pictures of the painted statue, download an intense new wallpaper, or pre-order the piece (available fall 2009 for $299), head on over to Sideshow's website now.
yeah, right on this page: http://us.blizzard.com/diablo3/community/
Seen it two years ago, and it still didn't make it around. *Sigh*

EDIT: I owned myself and beat me to it. I don't know if I should be happy now or in shame.

Be a bit of both. Just because there is a premium statue depicting diablo and a barbarian it does not mean that Diablo is even remotely gona be in the game. He probably is in the game since he is the main character and all, but he is most likely not going to be the main villain in this one.

Avoid, if at all possible.
Just a thought regarding the Diablo III teaser trailer. From the ending of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, we are not sure what happened to Tyreal, right? He has vanished. He might even have been influenced by Baal by destroying the corrupted Worldstone.

Right. Now in the teaser trailer we see a great comet crashing down on the Sanctuary from the skies, and it appears as the demonic hordes originate from the center of the crater. Now.. Why would the demonic hordes come from heaven? Wouldn't it be more logical if the forces of the Prime Evils came from below the earth? Because really..? What lives in the heavens, if not the angels, and possibly a corrupted Tyreal?

I also thought about that and had a similar theory :p. It is possible that when Tyrael destroyed the Worldstone he would have been corrupted by the forces unleashed in that destruction.

    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.

    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore

    Or walking with my then-fiancee through the night until dawn, just talking
