DC Fandome Returning In October With New Looks At The Batman, The Flash, Peacemaker And More

Who needs Comic-Con anymore? Last year, the pandemic forced studios to get creative in figuring out how to deliver information about their upcoming projects to the masses. Going fully digital was apparently the answer. For Warner Bros., the DC FanDome online convention had its share of hiccups and technical snafus, but for the most part it performed as well as could be hoped for. 2021 will bring us the second annual installment of the streaming event, allowing fans to get exclusive first looks and immersive insights on all things DC: from the ongoing cinematic universe, to the various animated projects, to the CW shows, to the video game side of the franchise as well. 

Check out the trailer for the event below.

This year, DC FanDome will take place on October 16 starting at 10 A.M. PST. In their announcement post on the official DC Comics website, WarnerMedia Chair and Chief Executive Officer Ana Sarnoff released a statement, saying:

This year, we're taking everything that people loved about DC FanDome and supercharging it to super-serve fans with even more exclusive first-looks, breaking news, in-depth interviews and insight from the stars and creative teams of their favorite DC content."

Some of the many titles scheduled to be showcased will include (but not be limited to) Matt Reeves' "The Batman," "Black Adam," and "The Flash" on the cinematic side of things; CW shows such as "Batwoman," "Superman & Lois," and "DC's Stargirl"; video games "Gotham Knights" and "Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League"; comics galore; and, uh, a Batman/Fortnite crossover?
