DC FanDome 2021 Rundown


DC FanDome greeted fans once again as it returned this year with an exciting set of trailers, announcements, and updates all about the DC Universe.


Last October 16, DC held its free global virtual fan meeting event that featured a live webcast offering new information on all DC content, including new games, movies, comics, TV shows, and more.


Among the biggest highlights of this showcase were the trailers for The Batman, The Flash, The Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Black Adam, Peacemaker, Gotham Knights, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.


In case you missed it, here are some quick recaps to keep you on track.

The Flash

As speed as lighting, Ezra Miller excites fans as he arrives at the set of the film, the film hinting at his return as the Central City speedster. Big questions lie ahead of this film as to which era of Batman that Flash is visiting and what version of the Batmobile he will uncover. The teaser also showed the hero working with an alternate version of himself and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl. The film is directed by Andy Muschietti.
