Some post are saying that. They didnt have to revive the 4 off then. The 1st and 3th would be enough.
But watch later on how each of then know something that the other hokage dont know about cause remember. Hokage sometime know somthing and they keep it to themself
Why summon all four? Because Orochimaru wants power, that's why...
Or you think Orochimaru would summon the hokages just because Sasuke wants to?
sasuke will have,as an answer,that tobi told him lies: hashirama really wanted peace with the uchiha,and tobirama emarginated them only to keep an eye on the rebel ones. Hiruzen will then say that he has always wanted peace with them (and itachi confirmed that in the flashback of vol.62),in fact danzo was his enemy too. Finally,minato will say that it was indeed a uchiha who summoned the fox,that is tobi! sasuke will then be pissed off by tobi's lie that it was a natural calamity,and will desire to kill everyone,both tobi and the leaf ninjas!
Each Hokage was in office during different times, thus each could have done things none of the other 3 could have known about, this happens all the time with U.S. Presidents.
Saying that, Hashirama and Tobirama can give us early knowledge of the Village and what the Senju and Uchiha relationship was like.
Sarturobi was Hokage the longest and thus has the most to tell, not to mention the Uchiha massacre happened under his watch.
Minato is the greatest hero the village ever knew. Not to mention he is a tad bit different then the other 3 as he wasn't so much old school as they were, and thus he could relate to Sasuke more than they could.
PS, how come sasuke is now aware of the fact tobi is not madara,and yet he hasn't had any reaction??
Therefore, I think that dropping your opinions on good and evil without any initial basis is not correct. This is how some people think to justify they action.
In the shinobi world, there are rules and principles. There are team-level rules or recommendations set by the captain. These rules come after the rules and principles set by the whole village (village-level rules). The village-level rules must comply with the country-level rules and principles. Actually, the country-level rules is the absolute rules until there are amendments.
In order to facilitate relashionship between countries, and built a system that is secure, there are alliances, and these alliances are built upon rules and principles of collaboration or mutual protection. I can go farther to say that even if there is no alliance, each country knows that he must not attack another country. Eachi village know it must no attack another village, and so on. In fact, humans are conscious of principles such as (1) don't steal, (2) don't kill , etc. They know freedom, liberty, piece, etc. All these define good and evil at some extent.
For example, "thou shall not kill" is a social rule. However, the police has the right to kill any ganster who refuses to submit to their authority and threat them with a deadly attack.
Thus, I disagree with the argument that there is no define good and evil. A shinobi is not suppose to kill someone who is innocent. A country is not suppose to spy on another country. A country is not suppose to attack another country. These kind of action are motivated by fear, greed, selfishness, etc, and that is why they cause war, vengeance, etc. They are evil. The shinobi's only role is to protect his people from internal and external threat. In this duty, he might have to kill or injure someone who represent a threat. As long as he keep this line, he is doing good. If he becomes a threat to someone or another country, he is classified as someone who is doing evil.
Doing good or evil are choices that we make everyday. They are not some sort of philosophy. Good and evil are well-defined in every society.
From this, Itachi defended his village against the Uchiha, and honored his duty towards Konoha as a shinobi. He was a good soldier - unless new intels reveal that the Uchiha were innocents. There is a principle that exist in justice: "Only a lawful authority can pass judgement. If A kills B else by vengeance, and it is proven that be wasn't a threat to A, then A will be judge and condemned. This is because B himself is protected by law.

PS: How can we judge the Uchihas if they are not around?
========= ON summoning the Kages =======
1. I think Hashimara will give the Senju's version of Rikudo's children as Madara did with Obito. I expect Hashimara to reveal what he knows about the rivalry between the younger and elder son. I would like him to give what truly happen between Konoha, Madara, and the Uchiha.
2. Tobirama will clear our mind certainly on why the Uchiha became police force. We will know if it was by good intention or not. From Danzou's flashback, my first impression is that Tobirama was the guy who could make good decision. We also saw that his choice of Hiruzen was right for the village.
3. Hiruzen will clearly give all the detail with his knowledge of the coup d'etat. Hiruzen might also know what the Uchihas had as reasons for the coup d'etat. I will also like Kishi to say why Sasuke was named after Hiruzen grand-father because in every culture (specially mine), people don't give any name to their children. Usually, they give name of their ancestors.
4. Concerning Minato, I think the only thing we can expect from him with certainty is to reveal that a Sharingan guy controlled Kyuubi. However, he might have more intel on the conflict than we think. Minato knew about Madara, and Tobirama. He seemed to be vexed in a lot of knowledge about Konoha. I also hope Kishi will use this asspul to clear all discussion about his origins. Who were Minato's parents.
Finally, I expect Kishi to show some uchiha to defend themselves.

Why do you think Neiji's father was killed?
To my knowledge, Konoha is the village whose Hokage did a lot of efforts to avoid conflicts. Danzou's actions were a problem to Konoha itself.
So yeah, assassinations were conducted under the Hokages. Chidori was created as a technique for assassination. Heck, have you forgotten about Ibiki, who's in charge of an entire torture division? The Will of Fire doesn't imply any sort of anti-violence. It's always just been about village pride. Hashirama spent years at war with the Uchiha clan, so did Tobirama along with creating Edo Tensei, Sarutobi had the village involved in at least two world wars, and Minato showed no trouble being willing to kill.
Konoha accepted Suna's apologies because they blamed the whole thing on Orochimaru and because Konoha wasn't in a position to challenge them. And Neji's father being sacrificed only shows that Konoha wasn't in the position to go to war right after the Third Ninja War. Konoha is the only village shown involved in all three world wars. Besides, avoiding conflict doesn't equal anti-violence, proven by Danzo's actions which were implied to have kept Konoha out of several conflicts.
about the zetsu,you should re-read vol.60 too,as sasuke only forged the zetsu to tell him what was going on,in fact he discovered about the war because the zetsu told him so, he didn't enter any mind!
You know what I loved about this chapter? Zetsu is once again responsible for the plot moving along. He is the duct tape that holds this whole ridiculous thing together E>

I can't understand why Naruto would need to be both the fastest ninja in the manga AND be able to teleport, AND be able to have 1000 of himself on the battlefield at once. What the hell kind of fight would that be? You'd never see the opponent. All you'd see is a giant blob of orange.
I hope Hiraishin disappears from continuity. No Edo Minato using it. No Sasuke using it. No Naruto using it. It's the only one of the upper echelon of hax jutsu that doesn't have a distinct drawback.
EDIT: Oh yeah. Forgot about Kamui. That one has no detrimental side effects... or it does, but not if you've got Hashirama DNA to allow spamming.

ET will force the truth, if it can force people to fight against their former comrades. There's no reason it shouldn't.
They do have a jutsu that can force people to speak the truth. It's called "plain old non-descript Sharingan Genjutsu".
Sasuke used hypnosis to force a Kumo-nin to tell him where Bee was. Did the same to learn Zetsu's orders. Itachi used it to force Kabuto to reveal the seals to cancel Edo Tensei. Sasuke can force each Hokage to give up the goods.
