First thing’s first: What is the DC FanDome?
In lieu of actual fan conventions, DC has decided to host a virtual convention for all things DC. There are two events. The first, DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes, is an eight hour livestream event, which will repeat three times within 24 hours for people in different time zones. The second, happening in September, is called DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, and is more of a free-for-all with panels, sessions, and other live-streamed events.
What’s the schedule for DC FanDome?
There are a lot of events scheduled in the eight hours of Hall of Heroes, but some highlights include:
- Wonder Woman: 1984 at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT
- A new game about the Court of Owls at 1:25 p.m. EDT/10:25 a.m. PDT

Where can I watch DC’s FanDome?
There’s a website for that! All of DC’s FanDome will be available to stream on the official FanDome website (aka DCFandome.com). The website works on desktop, mobile, and tablet devices for maximum flexibility. You don’t need any additional software. DC recommends using Google Chrome 56 and above or Firefox 51 and above. It’s unclear what material will wind up on YouTube or other social sites, but DC promises there will be exclusive content that only appears in “the dome,” so to speak, so the official website is the place to go.
Do I need to register?
No. That said, creating an account beforehand lets you access the event schedule first and customize what your own personal schedule.
When is the DC FanDome?
There are two separate DC FanDome events. One, DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes, takes place on Aug. 22, starting at 1 p.m EDT/10 a.m. PDT and ending on Aug. 23 at 1 p.m EDT/10 a.m. PDT. The other, DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, will be on Sept. 12 at 1 p.m EDT/10 a.m. PDT and end on Sept. 13 at 1 p.m EDT/10 a.m. PDT.
All panels will be available for 24 hours only, much like an in-person event.
Do I have to pay?
Nope! The FanDome is free!
Is this just for the United States?
The FanDome is for ALL fans, so it’s not geo-locked and fans from all over the world can participate. Additionally, there will be 9 subtitle options: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Traditional Chinese
