Black soulstone trailer question

General Discussion
When leah is thrown into that vision and the gaint guy is talking to her (Mannaroth)
he mentions "one by one we fell into your trap...but i defy you". Whats he talking about? i feel like im messing something. Touching up on lore before release.
There's been quite a bit of discussion about this. The consensus is that he's not actually addressing Leah, that he's addressing another character. Like possibly Diablo, Cain, or Tyrael. But we don't really know, I don't think.
His name is Azmodan and he is talking about the other evils that were destroyed in diablo 1 and 2.. there are 7 evils of hell.. 3 prime and 4 lesser.. all but 2 of the evils were destroyed in diablo 1 and 2.. Azmodan is one of the 2 that was not destroyed

The "giant guy" is Azmodan. The "brothers whom fell into the trap" were Diablo/Mephisto/Baal.

Tyrael worked with the Horadrim to trap the prime evils in the soul stones.

They used the world stone to create Sanctuary and hide it in plain sight, the world stone is now destroyed (or so we think).
SO the blacksoul stone... do we know anything about this?

My understanding is we're trying to capture the Evils in the Black Soulstone, because as it turns out you can't really kill them, and letting them run loose incorporeal isn't a real good idea.
