Looking back at 2020, we can’t identify a lot of fun days. Or even remember distinct days. But one event helped us escape for a bit: DC FanDome. DC Comics’ free, virtual fan experience showcased looks ahead at upcoming projects and featured fun interviews across film, TV, and comics. It was like a mini Comic-Con focused solely on the world of DC. The day flew by. DC FanDome garnered enough attention that DC Comics and Warner Bros. decided to pull a repeat for 2021. DC FanDome 2021 will take place on October 16, and DC and Warner Bros. just revealed the program.
DC FanDome’s lineup this time around includes more breaking news and exclusive trailers and announcements. Like, for example, an exclusive new trailer for The Batman. Fitting since we saw The Batman‘s initial trailer for the first time at FanDome 2020. Additionally on the DC films side of things we’ll get: new content from DC League of Super-Pets, a first look at Black Adam, a sneak peek at The Flash, and behind the scenes looks at Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
Warner Bros. isn’t forgetting about the television side of things either. DC FanDome will have a celebration of 100 episodes of Legends of Tomorrow, looks at new seasons of Sweet Tooth, Superman & Lois, and more. Plus they’ll show a sneak peek of an upcoming episode of Stargirl. Moreover HBO Max has some material to share from the upcoming series Peacemaker and limited event series DMZ. The streamer will also have sneaks peeks from returning favorites Titans and Doom Patrol.
In the world of gaming, fans will get fresh reveals from Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. And then in animated series, we’ll see what’s up with the upcoming limited series Aquaman: King of Atlantis. Then there’s a sneak peek at the next season of Harley Quinn and early looks at Batman: Caped Crusader and Young Justice: Phantoms.
When it comes to the comics, DC publishing will honor Wonder Woman at FanDome with a spotlight on three upcoming titles: Wonder Woman Historia, Nubia and the Amazons, and Wonderful Women of the World. They’ll share updates on the return of the Milestone Universe and Batman: Fear State as well.
And yes, FanDome will be all-virtual and free again this time, too. Fans can watch DC FanDome at their site, Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
