Today is the day. The day DC fans have been waiting for, and Warner Bros/ DC Entertainment have promised like no other as we enter the Dome.
With millions of fans from around the world inside the Hall of Heroes, DC are in fact bringing the big guns in the worlds of films, TV and games and I believe there’s so much more to be revealed today.
So here’s your rundown of the Hall of Heroes schedule and what I believe will and hope happens with all times UK based.
Wonder Woman 1984 – Panel – 6pm
Kicking off DC FanDome is one of the biggest movies of the year, Wonder Woman 1984 as Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal with director/ co-writer and producer Patty Jenkins take part of a 25 minutes panel included taking fan questions.
Now, it’s already been confirmed there will be a brand new trailer, but the important thing that I believe we’ll see is more of Pascal’s Maxwell Lord and more importantly see Wiig fully formed Cheetah.
The thing is I don’t know what the surprises they’re teasing could be, which is incredibly exciting! The only thing I could guess it’s something to do with the Amazon spin-off.
Warner Bros. Games Montreal Announcement – 6:25pm
This 20 minute panel and Q&A takes place straight after WW84 panel and while they’re teasing like “we don’t know what it is?” but it’s well known it’s going to be Batman: Gotham Knights.
What will be helpful to know, after years of hints, if we are finally getting the Court of Owls as the villains. It’s great we’ll be getting a first look teaser, and this Q&A will highlight more things about the game.
My hopes it’s outside the Arkhamverse and we have the Batfamily involved and play as them similar to Spider-Man and for a couple of missions play as Miles Morales.
Multiverse 101 – Panel – 7:15pm
There is a panel before this focusing on The Sandman, but I believe this could be the most crucial panel of DC FanDome as It talks about the DC Multiverse with Head of DC Comics Jim Lee and Master of the Arrowverse/DCTV Greg Berlanti.
However, the essential member of this panel is Head of DC Films Walter Hamada as it’ll be the first time fans will hear from the big chief and he might reveal some things about his plans with DC Films.
That’s the hope anyway, as this panel has a reasonable amount of time of 30 minutes and is just before The Flash.
Inducing Flash – Panel – 7:40pm
This quick and breezy 10 minute panel will feature The Flash director Andy Muschietti and producer Barbara Muschietti, screenwriter Christina Hodson and Barry Allen himself Ezra Miller.
I honestly thought nothing of this panel, due to the fact they haven’t started filming, and it’ll be little info.
However, that all changed when it was announced Ben Affleck was returning as Batman and while this would’ve broken the internet like it did this week (click here for more info) and been great to hear it come from Muschietti.
Additionally, in the Hall of Heroes trailer, Muschietti wants to show something. I believe this will be production art.
What I hope it Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck pop up to hello to each other and I’d shit my pants if that happens. Also, some more news on casting would be fantastic too.
The Suicide Squad – Panel – 7:55pm
James Gunn has been hyping this 30 minute panel, and I saw from his panel teaser they play a game, but I think this is the third most important panel of the whole event.
I believe Gunn will introduce his cast and more importantly reveal the character names of both Idris Elba and John Cena.
While I am annoyed we’re not getting a true sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 movie and think Gunn is basically doing an R-rated Guardians of the Galaxy, it sounds like we’ll be getting a trailer (or at least a teaser) setting the tone of the film.
Then there’s a two-and-a-half-hour break, but with some good panels with Jim Lee, a panel about Batman and another with The Joker and a secret DC Comics panel, which could easily be about Tom Taylor’s Injustice Year Zero comic. Or it could be a red-herring for a secret DC Films announcement.
The time will be mostly spent writing articles and posting reactions before the second half of DC FanDome begins.
The Snyder Cut of Justice League – Panel – 10:30pm
This is the big one has Zack Snyder is talking about his cut of Justice League and will be taking fan questions and joined by guests for the 25 minute panel.
Snyder has been getting the fanbase excited with 20 second teaser trailers. So it is evident, even before they were released, we’re getting a trailer. The filmmaker also stated at Justice Con that he’d reveal if it’s a film or series.
Now the interesting thing (while I don’t care much) will be the selected fan questions and these special guest. Snyder posted on his Vero an image of Ray Fisher’s Victor Stone with the description “Stone In The Dome” which seemingly confirms Fisher will be a guest.
Both Gadot and Miller had recorded panels, so it’s not a stretch to see them pop-up. Henry Cavill was on the live stream on the announcement of the Snyder Cut, so I feel you got to have him there.
Finally, I sincerely hope Affleck and Jason Momoa will show up and complete it and support this historic moment as the Justice League.
As for the trailer, I’ll hear Junkie XL’s score, see the original design of Steppenwolf and my hope is it’ll be voiced over by Ray Porter’s Darkseid with a tease to end the happiest of wet dreams.
Then there’s a 15 minute panel for The Flash TV show, which will include a trailer for season seven and I wouldn’t be surprised if they announce that this is the final season of The Flash.
Black Adam – Panel – 11:10pm
Not a lot is known about this apart from Dwayne Johnson will be taking control and will reveal the story of this movie. Plus, unveil more info in during the fan Q&A.
From last night’s teaser will get the first official logo and see some dope production art and even though it’s only 15 minutes, I hope he announces the cast of Black Adam.
It could end teasing a showdown with Cavill’s Superman.
There’s just under an hour break which includes a panel for the TV show Titans. I see this as a showcase of the season three trailer and confirmation of being an HBO Max exclusive.
Aquaman – Panel – 12:05am
As we hit midnight film’s director James Wan and King Orm himself Patrick Wilson will spend the 10 minutes revealing some behind the scene secrets and favourite moments of the billion-dollar blockbuster.
I believe Wan will also reveal they’re about to start production of Aquaman 2 and maybe something about The Trench spin-off.
Ask Harley Quinn – 12:15am
If you’re a fan of the Harley Quinn animated series, this will be a fun 10 minutes of Harley taking fan questions in her typical no-BS style.
The important thing I think this panel will reveal is she’s coming back for season 3 on HBO Max.
Then there’s another 25 minute gap celebrating 80 years of Wonder Woman and a Jim Lee panel, but it’s a nice break before we enter the final stretch of the fan event.
SHAZAM! – Panel – 12:40am
This will be 10 minutes of fun as we’ll learn more about the upcoming sequel and some smack about the Black Adam panel with the Zachary Levi cut of Shazam!
If Levi and cast do talk smack about Black Adam, I hope Johnson pops up and just rips them one.
Afterwards, the cast of Wonder Woman 1984 return to play a game they played on set called Werewolf 1984. It should be fun to see them cast interact with each other and more about this game.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League – 01:10am
LEGO Batman Will Arnett hosts the penultimate panel of the event as we learn more about the newly revealed and upcoming DC game coming from Batman: Arkham franchise Rocksteady Studios.
In these 20 minutes, we should learn about the story and hopefully see some footage.
The Batman – Panel – 01:30am
The final panel is the one that could steal the whole weekend from under the Snyder Cut as Aisha Tyler hosts the 30 minute panel with Matt Reeves and we know Robert Pattinson is also appearing.
I think we’re going to learn a lot from this panel from the story Reeves has created. Like his camera test footage of the Pattinson in the Batsuit, we’ll get the first looks of Catwoman, The Riddler, Penguin, Alfred and Commissioner Gordon and the batsuit without any red lenses.
It’s a long shot, but I could see us getting a short teaser of just hearing Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne and Batman’s voice.
The Announcements I Hope Get Revealed
It looks unlikely to see where it’ll happen, but here’s what I hope gets revealed.
- Henry Cavill announces that there will be a Man of Steel sequel.
- Margot Robbie or Christina Hodson confirms a BOP 2 or another Harley adventure with Cathy Yan coming back.
- Somehow we get an official confirmation of the David Ayer cut of Suicide Squad.
So there we have it, we’re only hours away, and I honestly can’t wait for DC FanDone to begin.
