In lieu of both San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con being cancelled this year due to COVID-19, DC Entertainment has chosen to have their own big convention. All done virtually, of course. The first ever DC FanDome: Global Experience is scheduled for August 22 and will feature panels and announcements from every aspect of DC Comics-based media. All available to fans for 24 hours.
Among them are 24 different movies and TV series currently in production. But on the official website, it asked for fan questions regarding for two “Secret Films.” Which, of course, suggests that at least two mystery projects are going to be formally announced at the event. The options for Secret Film 1 and 2 have since been removed, once sites such as
What could these two “Secret Movies” actually be? Luckily, there have been enough announcements over the past few years that we can venture at least a few good guesses. Here are our top 5 picks for DC FanDome’s potential films that could make huge headlines sometime next month.
The New Gods (Probability: 8/10)
A live-action film based on Jack Kirby’s seminal saga was announced as being in development a couple of years ago, with
Green Lantern Corps(Probability: 7/10)

She was always more “inspired by the Dark Knight” than actually partnered with him. Hopefully that’s not the case. However, Bruce Wayne as mentor should be the premise for our next entry.
Batman Beyond (Probability: 6/10)
A film adaptation of the Bruce Timm animated series has been rumored for years, and is something fans have wanted to see forever. Nearly twenty years ago, a movie version of the 1999-2001 cartoon was in active development, but it got dropped in favor of Christopher Nolan’s
SupermanFilm (Probability: 3/10)
This is another one that seems a little “pie-in-the-sky.” But stranger things have happened. Right now, there are a lot of different pieces moving around that seem to indicate this could become a reality, and it would certainly be a huge reveal that would break the internet. For starters, J.J. Abrams recently signed a huge development deal with Warner Brothers, and working on “big IP” is part what they want Abrams in on.
Most importantly, we know J.J. is a big Superman fan. He wrote a script for a movie about the Man of Steel called
