After the success of last year’s virtual event, Warner Bros. is bringing back DC FanDome later in 2021.
2020 was an unprecedented year for the world, as the pandemic caused havoc for every industry big and small. It meant huge delays in the theatrical release slate, as well as halting production on countless shows and movies across every genre. And although conventions were also canceled, Warner Bros. still managed to produce an impressive virtual event which provided plenty of new content for fans… DC FanDome. With reveals like the first trailer for The Batman, many were expecting to see the company bring DC FanDome back for 2021, and it has finally been confirmed.
The DC Comics Twitter account confirmed the news with a quick video, announcing that DC FanDome will return on October 16, 2021. While The Batman has already finished filming, a number of other movies and shows have recently started production like Black Adam and The Flash – so it’s not a stretch to imagine that all three films will have some kind of presence at DC FanDome. Take a look at the announcement video below.

You can check out the synopsis for the next DC film below.
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie and Michael Rooker.
