You can choose from a variety of personas and customize them with a slew of detail options during character creation.
They only show a few, so I am not entirely buying that it will be a "slew", but if it is even a decent variety that is awesome in my book. I mean obviously Diablo doesn't need tons of character customization (considering prior sales), but it is always something that I thought would be a neat addition.
There once was a MMO called Asheron's Call by Microsoft. One of the big "selling points" in character creation was customizing your head. Once you put on all the gear it doesn't matter (same with most MMO's). So take Diablo's camera view... how much customization will matter to you, when you look like everyone else once ya get all the gear on?
I'm hoping they will have an option to toggle headgear visibility on or off. It is kind of cool seeing your character all decked out, in detail, at the character selection screen before you jump into a game. So a little bit of customization would be welcome, but it doesn't have to be extensive, not in this kind of game. Plus, you can transmogrify your gear to look like whatever you want (in D3 at least), so you won't necessarily look the same as everyone else even if you're using the same gear. Once you're in a game and smashing demons, it won't matter too much, but it is a welcome addition.
