DC FanDome and Warner Bros. announce biggest line ups for 2021

DC FanDome - Appy Pie

DC FanDome and Warner Bros. have announced a range of films, television shows, comic books, and games through the virtual event. From Justice League to The Batman, Wonder Woman 1984, and an update on Neil Gaiman’s Sandmanseries at Netflix, a lot have been announced at the event. And it’s happening right now. There will be a second DC FanDome event that will be held on September 12. Here are some of the reveals that took place at the DC FanDome event:

Gotham Knights

WB Montreal’s Batman game Gotham Knights have finally been revealed after literal years of teasers. Gotham Knights, a co-op adventure starring Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, and Red Hood as they protect Gotham City following the apparent death of Batman. They’ll face off against a villainous group known as the Court of Owls and other members of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery. It will be entirely playable solo or with a two-player online co-op. A 7-minute gameplay trailer looks similar to the previous Batman Arkham games.

The Batman Teaser

Rounding out DC FanDome was the long-awaited first trailer of Matt Reeves’ The Batman. In it, we got a look at Robert Pattinson’s darker, disheveled Batman, glimpses of Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman (although Reeves stated she isn’t Catwoman yet in this film), Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and Jeffrey Wright as Detective Jim Gordon. Judging by clues in the trailer, The Batman isn’t set in the ’90s as originally speculated, and The Riddler seems to be the main villain of The Batman, despite never seeing actor Paul Dano on screen in the new footage.

Wonder Woman 1984

Stars of the Wonder Woman sequel, Gal Gadot, and Chris Pine, joined director Patty Jenkins to talk about the movie and present the new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer. This movie has been delayed a whole lot of times, some pre-pandemic, some after, and now it’s slated to be released on October 2.

The Suicide Squad

This is the James Gunn Suicide Squad movie, not to be confused with the first Suicide Squad movie. Yes, not hard to follow at all. James Gunn’s Suicide Squad’s cast has been revealed, and the team has grown exponentially. Idris Elba is playing Bloodsport; wrestler-actor John Cena is playing Peacemaker, and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson is playing Blackguard. The Suicide Squad, about a crew of DC villains, is supposed to be released on Aug. 6, 2021.

The Snyder Cut

Snyder announced Justice League will debut in four, hour-long chunks in 2021, and that the whole thing will eventually be able to be viewed as an entire film. Snyder has confirmed there will be no reshoots with the original cast, using only previously shot footage. Fans will likely get to see a good amount of footage that Snyder has re-added for his version of the film.

Titans

Titans, the marquee series had its third season teased during FanDome — and this time it’s going straight to Gotham City, reports GameSpot. Titans’ third season will see Jason Todd (Curran Walters) become Red Hood after leaving the Robin identity behind. The show will also make way for Barbara Gordon, former Batgirl.

Black Adam

The first story details for the Black Adam movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the titular antihero have finally been revealed alongside a couple of animated teaser trailers. Fans need to see how this fits into the DCEU in general, but we’ll see. Black Adam is slated to release on December 22, 2021.

Aquaman

The Aquaman panel only provided a teaser of what to expect for the Aquaman sequel, with director James Wan noting the movie will be a little bit more serious, a little bit more relevant to the world. The movie is currently scheduled for a 2022 release date.

Milestone Comics Revival

DC Comics revives Milestone Comics as a new imprint. It was announced that Milestone Comics is being revived alongside a new Static Shock comic and potential movie. An all-new digital comic will be released in February 2021 followed by an original graphic novel. As part of the revival Milestone Comics will be releasing classic issues in digital format starting in September 2020.

These are the major reveals planned. Get ready for a whole lot of footage to sort through.
