DC FanDome trailer

Are you ready to return to the FanDome?

After the wildly successful launch of its virtual convention devoted to the biggest upcoming movies and games based on DC Comics, Warner Bros. and DC are bringing you more content than ever on FanDome’s second and final day. DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse takes place in just over a week, and instead of focusing mostly on mega-budgeted movies, this second day opens things up with more than 300 panels and videos adding up to more than 100 hours of content from the worlds of comics, animation, movies, TV, and games.

Matt Reeves flew the virtual Batwing out of the virtual Batcave into the virtual DC FanDome to tell us all about The Batman, and he did not disappoint. Director Reeves talked about the film and gave us a seriously great trailer to boot, and pretty much everything the director had to say was gold.

It only seems appropriate that he chose the anti-hero, the one who delivers his own brand of justice. Now that Shazam! is in the hands of Zachary Levi and director David F. Sandberg, it’s time for Black Adam to finally rise to power, and the Black Adam DC FanDome panel gave us an exciting first look, including a glimpse at the Justice Society of America members who will be entering the fray with him.

The Flash DC FanDome

The Flash has been the subject of two television shows, multiple video games, and several movie appearances over the years, but the Scarlet Speedster has not received a solo live-action film…yet.

Here’s everything you need to know about The Flash DC FanDome panel. Read More »
