Comic-Con may be cancelled this year, but Warner Bros. will convene a 24-hour virtual gathering of the biggest names in the DC Comics universe.
The studio announced that DC FanDome will be held on August 22. The event will feature talent announcements and reveal new content from WB games, comics, film and television.
The announcement comes a couple months after Comic-Con, which attracts tens of thousands of comics fans to San Diego, was cancelled due to the coronavirus-related restrictions around large gatherings. Organisers plan a virtual Comic-Con@Home event for July 22-26, but no details on panels have been released.
FanDome virtual panels will feature cast and creators from DC films including ‘The Batman’, ‘Black Adam’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984’. The panels will also highlight casts from television shows such as ‘The Flash’, ‘Stargirl’ and ‘Black Lightning’.
‘Wonder Woman 1984’ was expected to be one of the summer’s biggest releases, but its arrival in theatres has been delayed until October.
FanDome will be spread out across six different areas on the event’s website: Hall of Heroes, DC WatchVerse, DC YouVerse, DC KidsVerse, DC InsiderVerse and DC FunVerse.
Content will be available in 10 languages.
