We're only a week away from the start of DC FanDome, and now we finally have the full, 24-hour programming schedule. As we've known for quite some time, the virtual convention is going to be packed with wall-to-wall events, teasers, celebrity appearances, interactive activities, and reveals for every DC/Warner Bros. property that you can imagine. There's even stuff for the kids. Until this morning, however, we didn't know the order in which they would appear.
When FanDome kicks off next Saturday (Aug. 22), it'll get right to the good stuff with a 25-minute panel for Wonder Woman 1984 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Featuring a sneak peek at the blockbuster sequel (currently scheduled to hit theaters Friday, Oct. 2), the event is also set to feature Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal, and Patty Jenkins. Érico Borgo and Aline Diniz will host.
