Since we don’t have a San Diego Comic-Con to look forward to this year, studios who’d normally stage a panel at the event have had to get creative. There’s still movie news and footage to share, particularly on the superhero front. How can we get that information to the masses?
Warner Bros. today announced plans for the new DC FanDome, a 24-hour global fan event that will feature virtual presentations across every DC medium: film; television; video games; comic books and more. The event will be held on Saturday, August 22, beginning at 1 pm EST / 10 am PST. It will be accessible at the Website DCFanDome.com.
Reps for the studio tell CinemaBlend that the virtual dome will house exclusive content from the casts and creators behind such popular DC shows and movies as Aquaman, The Batman, Batwoman, Black Adam, Black Lightning, Doom Patrol, The Flash, Harley Quinn, the Snyder Cut of Justice League, Lucifer, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, Titans, Watchmen and Patty Jenkins’ upcoming theatrical release, Wonder Woman 1984.
In addition to the announcements and footage, the DC FanDome will plunge fans into themed worlds designed to entertain everyone from movie and TV superfans to gamers and readers, to families and kids. Visitors will enter through a Hall of Heroes. From there, the planned zones will break down as the following, according to Warner Bros.:
In an effort to explain the thought process behind setting up the DC FanDome for this summer event, Warner Bros. Chair and Chief Executive Officer Ann Sarnoff said:
We will continue to bring details about what to expect during the DC FanDome from all of your favorite DC properties. Personally, I think it would be a fantastic place for Zack Snyder to drop a new trailer for his HBO Max release of Justice League. Could August 22 be the day?
