The DC Fandome has come and gone and they sure packed a punch with announcing a whole load of projects that will be coming out in the near future. I was able to watch just about every panel and I was blown away with the presentation and the detail that DC put into making you feel like you were at a con even though you were home. The Hall of Justice was the theme today and there were representatives from each language appearing here and there just so all the languages could be covered. The virtual con lasted about 6-7 hours and an encore of it was run right after for everyone who missed the live version of it. I am here to give you a recap of the most important announcements of the Fandome so that you can get all the juicy facts and only have to sit for 10 percent of the time. One thing I want to let you know – that didn’t include any video or footage – is that Shazam 2 was announced; with the title set to be Shazam: Fury of the Gods. Sinbad is expected to be in the movie and Titans Season 3 broke news that the upcoming villain would be Red Hood. It looks like Jason Todd will be going to the dark side during the season. Let’s get into the trailers and news from Fandome.
Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer and Cast
One of the first reveals of the Con was the cast of Wonder Woman 1984 and the trailer for the movie. We have Gal Gadot and Chris Pine revising their roles as Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor while bringing on Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal as Cheetah and Maxwell Lord. I won’t go into detail on the movie as the trailer will explain a lot – but it was cool hearing how well the cast got along and seeing Linda Carter making a surprise appearance to tell the main cast how proud she was.
The Flash Movie
The only real news we got on the Ezra Miller movie was that they had developed a new suit with the yellow bolts being featured on it and that the storyline suggests Batman was the one who created the suit for him. With the pandemic, they haven’t really had a chance to do much filming so one can only assume that this was one thing they wanted to give the fans to hold them over until they can start making the movie and release teasers.
DC Gotham Knights Video Game
This reveal is one game I’m easily going to buy when it comes out. It was announced that a new Batman game would be released where we are introduced to a world where Dark Knight is dead and his supporters have to find a way to step up and take the mantle that he has left to them. Batgirl, Robin, Night Wing, and Red Hood are 4 people you can choose to play as in the game and they have added multiplayer to the franchise. Take a look at the trailer and tell us what you think.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League
The title is a new action game starring the infamous supervillain team and is a continuation of the Arkham Universe, according to Rocksteady. Rocksteady has always done a great job at developing good Batman games, so I will give this game a try. It was announced with a 2022 release and this video to hold us over.
Suicide Squad Cast and Trailer Reveal
I won’t go too much into the cast list because this video reveals the cast, but what I will say is that this time around, we get a lot more Squad and way better character than the first movie.
At the end of the panel, James Gunn and the cast revealed a first look at the movie and we are shown a lot of explosions and various looks at each Character. I’m looking forward to seeing John Cena as Peace Maker and Pete Davidson as Black Guard. Let us know which character you are looking forward to seeing in the movie.
Justice League (Snyder Cut) Trailer
We already knew the Snyder Cut was funded and was going to be released on HBO Max at some point in the future. However, what we were treated to in the trailer was footage of Darkside in the movie and a nice look for the movie. I am intrigued to see how the extra footage changes this movie, but let us know if you will be watching this when it comes out or not!
Black Atom Teaser
We were treated with the surprise of the official announcement that The Rock would be playing the role of Black Atom. This one is set to be released in 2021. We were given this teaser, and after seeing it I will be looking to see how he applies his own spin on the character and where they go with the property.
The Batman Trailer and reveal
All I have to say is WOW! This trailer exceeded any expectations I was going to have with it and made me a believer that it will be a great movie. The first thing I noticed, was the dark feel of the movie and the showing of the different characters; but only to the point where you get a glimpse of them to make you want to wait to see it. Kudos to the cast and production crew on what looks to be a badass movie.
With all these properties looking like they are turning around, maybe DC looks to be moving in the right direction. I have to say out of all the trailers that were revealed, not one disappointed me. Let us know what you thought of each big reveal and tell us what your experience was like watching DC Fandome.
