With San Diego Comic-Con being mostly a bust and Star Wars Celebration cancelled, fans hoping for a weekend of fun geek news turn their heads to Warner Bros. On August 23, it’s hosting DC FanDome, a 24-hour online event that promises to be as close to a Hall H experience as one can get.
Today, Warner Bros revealed some The Snyder Cut,” and James Wan from Aquaman 2.
And that’s just the movies. From the TV side, there’s Titans‘ Brenton Thwaites, the Flash himself, Grant Gustin as well as Candice Patton, Doom Patrol‘s Abigail Shapiro, April Bowlby, and Diane Guerrero, Harley Quinn‘s Kaley Cuoco and Lake Bell, Legends of Tomorrow‘s Caity Lotz, the list goes on and on.
Thankfully, WB hasn’t forgotten about its comic book writers and artists! Brian Michael Bendis, G. Willow Wilson, Geoff Johns, Cecil Castellucci, Grant Morrison, Kami Garcia, Jim Lee, Mairghread Scott, Marc Guggenheim, Nicola Scott, Neil Gaiman, and Vita Ayala are just some of the creators who will appear.

That said, there are some notable names missing. No Jason Momoa. No Ray Fisher. No Henry Cavill. No J.J. Abrams. No Joaquin Phoenix or Todd Phillips. So don’t expect much Superman or Joker news just yet. Still, it’s an encouraging list. Plus, in addition to big panels filled with news, like any good convention, there are other options as well to virtually participate. You can go and look at fan artwork, take virtual tours, read comics, take “photos” (of what just remains to be seen), and so on. You can read more about all that on the FanDome website.
FanDome kicks off at 3 a.m. AEST on Sunday, August 23.
