A few weeks after Comic-Con@Home brought the convention experience into fans' living rooms under unprecedented pandemic circumstances, DC looks to do the same thing with its more focused superhero fare during DC FanDome. The free, badge-less, 24-hour marathon of DC fandom looks to cover everything from the films to the TV shows to the comics — and it boasts a massive array of talent from all three sectors.
Announced today, some of the notables dropping by DC FanDome to bring new info to superhero faithfuls include Justice League filmmaker Zack Snyder, Wonder Woman herself Gal Gadot, and the world's newest Batman, Robert Pattinson.
Here's the full rundown. Just, umm, read really quickly:
In a video announcement featuring over 300 actors, writers, directors, and other talent from DC productions, DC FanDome did its best to get fans hyped for its day of DC. Aside from the aforementioned A-listers, some other big names include The Suicide Squad filmmaker James Gunn, The Suicide Squad actor Idris Elba, ex-Batman Val Kilmer, Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins, The Flash (both Grant Gustin and Ezra Miller versions), and Black Adam's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Phew. And there's way, way more that we didn't even mention.
And here're some of the hosts, presenters, and special guests that aren't even in these DC projects:
Those are a lot of folks to jam into 24 hours. There probably weren't that many people in the entire series run of 24, for that matter. But that means films like Shazam 2, Black Adam, The Suicide Squad, The Flash, Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, and more should be on the docket while TV like Doom Patrol and Harley Quinn will also get some time in the spotlight.
The wildest part is that the event will feature over 100 hours of programming from all these stars — so fans should choose their battles carefully...or just stick around and check out SYFY WIRE's coverage of the giant event. DC FanDome takes place on Aug. 22, starting at 10am PDT, at its website here.
