If you felt let down by Comic-Con this year, you’re not alone. The virtual SDCC event came and went without any big news or revelations, especially for superhero fans. But another event is stepping up to the plate: DC FanDome.
This morning DC released a teaser trailer for FanDome. The virtual event updates fans on all things DC. You can watch the trailer below:
It’s hard not to get excited when you hear John Williams’ iconic Superman score. This trailer is definitely hyping us up. So what exactly is DC FanDome promising fans?
About the event
DC FanDome kicks off August 22. Unlike Comic-Con’s multi-day event, FanDome lasts only 24 hours. (So don’t miss the window!)
Warner Bros. hasn’t released a specific schedule for the event. At this time, it’s unclear if there will be a lineup of specific panels at certain times, or if they will drop their news all at once. Given the 24-hour window, I think the latter is more likely. (It would be weird to have a 4am panel.)
For now, fans are being kept in the dark about the specifics of what DC properties will be featured during FanDome. However, the website promises “special programming, panels and content reveals from a wide variety of films, TV series and games.” We’ve also been promised “exclusive footage” – but no specific word on what that might be.
