DC FanDome – Everything You Need To Know

by Jacob Fisher

Update 8/19: In an unprecedented reveal, DC FanDome is being split into two events – one taking place on August 22 (as originally planned) and the other taking place on September 12. This might be the better route considering that each panel should have a fair share of breathing room.

August 22: All Movies and games panels will take place over an 8-hour period.

September 12: The rest of the event, including most of the DCTV panels, will be showcased.

The entire schedule for DC FanDome has been posted in full details. Go to DC FanDome | Schedule to see the full list. Panels are organized by hub and many have up to two scheduled encores, meaning that you will have more opportunities to watch them in their entirety. Make an account and start building your agenda ahead of time. See when you can expect big news to drop from exciting titles such as The Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman 1984, and The Batman!

On Saturday, August 22, starting at 10 a.m. PDT, Warner Bros. will welcome fans everywhere into the DC FanDome – a free virtual fan experience where no badge is required.

Accessible for 24 hours at DCFanDome.com, the global event will immerse fans into the DC Multiverse. New announcements are expected from WB Games, film, TV, and comics – as well as an unprecedented opportunity to hear from the casts and creators behind your favorite feature films and TV series. Projects such as Aquaman, The Batman, Batwoman, Black Adam, Black Lightning, DC Super Hero Girls, Legends of Tomorrow, Stargirl, Doom Patrol, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Lucifer, Pennyworth, Shazam, The Suicide Squad, Supergirl, Superman & Lois, Teen Titans GO!, Titans, Watchmen, Young Justice: Outsiders and, coming this fall to theaters worldwide, Wonder Woman 1984.

Exploring the DC FanDome

The epicenter of the DC FanDome is the Hall of Heroes, where you can experience special programming, panels, and content reveals from a wide variety of films, TV series, and games. This hub will be available in several languages, including Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. From there, navigate deeper into the DC Multiverse, exploring five additional satellite worlds – each with its own localized content and unique activities. One world is even fully devoted to younger fans:

DC WatchVerse: Here’s where you grab a seat, sit back and join the virtual audience and become completely engrossed in hours of must-see content from around the world. Everything from panels and exclusive screenings to never-before-seen footage, featuring cast, creators and behind-the-scenes crew from across DC Films, TV, Home Entertainment and Games.

DC YouVerse: Venture into this world where the FANS are the stars to see the most amazing user-generated content, cosplay, and fan art from around the world – including, perhaps, your own.

DC KidsVerse: Need a way to entertain your kids for hours on end? This has you covered inside a special world, which can be accessed directly at DCKidsFanDome.com. This area features a broad range of family-friendly activations for younger fans.

DC InsiderVerse: This creativity-based world contains a centerpiece video featuring legendary artist and DC CCO/Publisher Jim Lee, President of DC-Based Film Production Walter Hamada, and creator of the DC TV Arrowverse, Executive Producer Greg Berlanti, welcoming fans with a 101-style introduction to the DC Multiverse. From there, go behind the scenes with the master artisans who bring DC to life in all its forms, from comic books to games, TV, movies, theme parks, consumer products and more.

Pull Up to the Blerd & Boujee House

The second annual celebration of Black nerd culture returns with the all-new Blerd & Boujee House at DC FanDome, bringing Blerds, LatinxGeeks and all nerds “party-with-a-purpose” vibes. As anyone lucky enough to get into the first- ever Blerd & Boujee boat party (featuring DJ D-Nice) at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 can attest, fans will not want to miss connections and conversations designed for the culture.

In partnership with Talenthouse, DC FanDome have also launched a call for the best DC Fan Art & Fandom displays.  Be sure to submit your best at create.DCFanDome.com for a chance to be featured inside this virtual world event.  Selected artists on the day of our event will be voted on by the community in each of our two competitions in order to help our judges pick selected artist winners.  Selected artist winners will receive part of a cash prize pool courtesy of DC and Talenthouse.

More details for DC FanDome will be released over the coming weeks, including the specifics of every panel that will take place on August 22. More details can be found at DCFanDome.com
