Fresh off of its release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, DC has announced that its massive “FanDome” event is back for another year. The 2020 FanDome was created as a way for DC to share news about its upcoming movies with fans during the coronavirus pandemic. The event had panels, announcements, and plenty of first looks at DC’s upcoming movies, and this time around should be no different.
DC has quite a few movies on its slate in the next couple of years and the FanDome seems like the perfect place to show them off. The only remaining movie for 2021 is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which will have already been released in theaters and HBO Max by the time the FanDome starts.
The most anticipated movie that’s likely to show up at the event is The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes). DC also has Black Adam, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, which is a movie we still don’t know much about. Closing out the year, DC also has The Flash and Aquaman 2, which are both set to release sometime in winter 2022.
There’s no telling how much of these movies DC will actually show at the event, but DC did debut footage from The Suicide Squad and the first trailer for The Batman at last year’s event.
Outside of movies, the 2021 FanDome will likely include news and panels on DC’s upcoming games, TV and streaming series, and comics, just like last year’s did. On the games side, DC is set to release both Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League sometime in 2022, so it’s possible that these titles could show up at the event.
The 2021 FanDome will open on Oct. 16. While we don’t know exactly what the schedule for this year’s event might look like, it’s worth noting that the 2020 FanDome lasted more than seven hours.
