It is a good time to be a DC fan because they announced a lot of new movies and stuff that are related to the DC universe. DC Fandome released some spectacular new footage of The Batman, Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad to name a few.
What is DC Fandome?
Think of it like Comic-con but only for DC comics. So don’t expect to see any Marvel announcements. The event had its glorious first day on August 22, covering almost the entire DC world from comic books, TV shows, movies, and video games. DC Fandome included online panels, cosplay, fan art, and more.
When is the next DC Fandome?
The second part of the event is scheduled to follow up on Sept. 12 called DC Fandome: Explore the Multiverse. It starts at 10 A.M. PST and fans can choose their own schedule from the selection of the on-demand section of panels instead of pre-scheduled ones.
No one expected the trailer of this movie this soon but boy, are we glad to see it. Director Matt Reeves also made an interview and shared more insights into the movie. The trailer is amazing considering that it had only completed shooting only 30%. If he could pull off a great trailer with only 30% of the movie, then imagine what the finished product will be like.
Don’t frown that it is going to be another origin story and we have to see old Thomas and Martha die again. Set in the Year two version where Bryce Wayne already became the Batman, the movie will follow a detective-like story. Robert Pattinson’s “I’m vengeance” line with perfect Batman voice will convince anyone who thought he isn’t perfect for the role.
The Batman is scheduled to arrive on Oct. 21, 2021. It already got its own spin-off TV show with Reeves producing about the Gotham Police Department.
Justice League: The Snyder Cut
Fans have long been asking the Snyder cut version Justice League. The movie first released in 2017, completed by the director Joss Whedon. Zack Snyder had to step down from the director’s chair because of a family tragedy.
Not only fans but the case of the movie also wanted the Snyder cut to release. Now it is happening as the movie is scheduled to release on HBO Max in 2021 with four hour-long parts. The first teaser trailer gave a glimpse of this much long-waited version.
Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman is what showed everyone that DC could do it. The sequel features Kristin Wiig’s Cheeta and Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord as the badies. Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor comes back despite his demise in the first one.
The panel released a trailer that shows what the look the Cheeta will be after her complete transformation. The movie is coming out in Oct. 2, 2020.
The DC Fandome panel released the concept arts for the upcoming The Flash movie. In this movie, The Flash will don a new suit made by none other than Affleck’s Batman. In order to turn the things up a notch, the movie will also feature Micheal Keaton as the 1980’s Batman. The concept art shows that Micheal Keaton’s Batman and the Flash teams up to fight.
Director Andy Muschietti and screenwriter Christina Hodson confirmed that the Flash will travel through time to change the DC Multiverse. It also revisits some of the classic DC movies and will possibly connect the TV shows. Ezra Miller did a cameo as the speedster in CW’s The Flash. Maybe they will show Grant Gustin’s Flash in the movie. It is set to release sometime in 2022.
The Suicide Squad
This DC movie about a group of villains who are forced to do suicide missions will be a soft reboot from its predecessor that released in 2016. Director James Gunn wrote and directed the two Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies. He got hired to direct The Suicide Squad after he was let go from Marvel due to some years of old harsh tweets.
Gunn released a teaser with few movie footage and behind-the-scenes clips. He also revealed what character each actor is playing in an awesome video. The movie is set to release in August 6, 2021.
The nemesis of Shazam is finally going to appear in the big screen with his own movie. Dwayne Johnson teased the movie with concept arts explaining what the origin of his anti-hero will be. The movie will also introduce the Justice Society with Atom Smasher, Doctor Fate and Hawkman. He also teased a possible showdown with the Justice League in future projects.
The panel for the Aquaman didn’t reveal much but only teased what to expect in the coming sequel. Aquaman 2 will be a bit more serious and relevant to the real world. It is currently scheduled to hit theaters somewhere in 2022.
The Shazam’s panel revealed the title of the upcoming sequel – Shazam: Fury of the Gods. The first part ended with its villain Dr. Sivana teaming up with an alien worm. The movie is set to release on November 4, 2022.
Neil Gaiman confirmed that Sandman is under works by Netflix and sheds some light on the details. He said that the series will be slightly looser but still faithful to the comic books. This version is set in the present time unlike its original 80s and 90s time period.
The Flash Season 7
Seems like The Flash is everywhere now. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the show is among those forced to cut down their last season. They released a new teaser trailer, beginning at the end of season 6. Scheduled to return in January 2021.
Titans Season 3
The third season of the DC streaming service’s Titans got teased at the Saturday panel. The show is now in Gotham city and will see Jason Todd becoming Red Hood after he abandoned the Robin identity at the end of season 2. No release date is confirmed. It will be available on HBO Max.
