DC FanDome Schedule Includes Panels on ‘The Batman’ and the Snyder Cut
Filling the void left in the summer by the lack of a San Diego Comic-Con (at least not an in-person one), DC Comics is launching a virtual con they’re calling “DC FanDome,” with all the stuff you expect from a great convention — panels, screenings, exclusive merch — all available virtually on the computer.
The DC FanDome website has just been updated with the full schedule of events, which includes panels in a variety of different “rooms” like the “Hall of Heroes,” which is the FanDome equivalent of the massive Hall H where San Diego Comic-Con holds its premiere panels. Just about every current or upcoming DC movie and television series has its own spotlight — including far-off projects like Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson as the DC villain, which has been talked about for years and never materialized.
Johnson will be on hand for the Black Adam panel on Saturday; you’ll also get a chance to watch the creators and stars of The Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman 1984, and Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Obviously Zack Snyder will be there hyping his upcoming director’s cut of Justice League for HBO Max. On the TV side, there are panels dedicated to Doom Patrol, The Flash, and the upcoming Superman & Lois.
We’ve put together some of the highlights below; he full schedule for DC FanDome is here:
