The first DC FanDome virtual convention was held in August last year, due to COVID-19 restrictions cancelling all physical conventions such as San Diego Comic-Con, where Warner Bros. — like most other big studios — usually teased its upcoming DC movies, TV shows and games. With Comic-Con being an online-only event this year as well, Warner believes it’s better off doing DC FanDome again. And why not. The first one brought in 22 million views from 220 countries, the company claims, much more than what Comic-Con managed during its lacklustre online offering.
If the 2021 DC FanDome is anything like what we had in 2020, you can expect an several hours-long run of announcements, cast appearances, and footage — from across the DC multiverse. Last year, the entire thing was repeated twice in a faux-live manner to allow fans globally to have the same experience, no matter where they live. For those in India interested in discovering the new DC stuff as it’s revealed, you’ll likely need to stay up all night, starting the late hours of October 16 and into the early hours through October 17.
