DC FanDome kicks off today, August 22. We already know that we’re at least getting a trailer from the upcoming October movie Wonder Woman: 1984, which director Patty Jenkins tweeted about recently. But considering the amount of movie panels at the show, we’re sure to be getting a whole lot more than that.
DC’s virtual event will feature movies like The Batman, Suicide Squad, Shazam, and more will be highlighted with panels throughout the day on August 22. That’s only one day away, and not only will the panels focus on films, but also new DC-themed video games.
On August 19, just days before the launch of DC FanDome, DC announced it was splitting the event between two days: one on August 22 and the other on September 12. So this weekend’s lineup for the show has changed quite a bit. All of the movie panels, along with a few high-profile TV panels will take place on August 22, while everything else has been moved to September. The updated schedule is located below.
What Is DC FanDome? Start Dates, Times, And What To Expect
Warner Bros.–and more specifically DC–is taking a different approach to the summer convention. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic–and because physical convention are not a good idea by any means–a virtual event called DC FanDome will be coming to fans on August 22. This 24-hour event will primarily cover movies. The panel schedule has been released, and the show is looking very promising.
The big standout when comparing DC FanDome is the panels. While [email protected] gave us info on a couple of highly-anticipated movies and shows, like Bill and Ted Face the Music and The Boys Season 2, DC FanDome is delivering panels around numerous DC movies: Wonder Woman 1984, The Flash, The Batman, The Suicide Squad, Shazam 2, Black Adam, and the Snyder Cut of Justice League, all of which will include some massive stars.
Additionally, there are two DC games panels, including the recently teased Suicide Squad game from Rocksteady, the developer behind the Batman: Arkham trilogy. There is also a WB Games Montreal announcement as well, where it will debut a new game believed to be tied to Batman. Teasers released suggest it could involve the Court of Owls, and a secret code entered on a promotional website hints at Two-Face making a return.
In addition to the Hall of Heroes, there is the WatchVerse, which focuses on TV shows like Pennyworth, Black Lightning, Doom Patrol. These panels will all appear on the second-half of DC FanDome on September 12. This section will also have screenings of DC animated moves as well. You can check out a curated selection of the must-watch panels from there as well. We recommend the Young Justice panel which will be moderated by GameSpot’s Chris E. Hayner. On top of all that, the KidsVerse, YouVerse, FunVerse, and InsiderVerse sections will each offer up something different for fans.
This virtual event will run for 24-hours straight, with encore presentations of panels playing in the early hours and, like [email protected], DC Fandome is free to attend. As far as where to watch, all FanDome content will be hosted on DCFanDome.com and DCKidsFanDome.com, where you can head now to make an account and save your personal schedule for later.
Below you’ll find a curated list of the most-notable panels coming to DC FanDome along with their official descriptions. Most of the panels run for about 30 minutes, except for The Flash and Shazam, which will both be 10 minutes long.
