Get Ready for the DC FanDome!

It’s been a long, long quarantine folks. Let’s be honest, under normal circumstances, we’d all be waist deep in Con season — the most wonderful time of the year; starting with Wondercon, then Paleyfest, E3, Anime Expo, and glorious, glorious SDCC. But alas, 2020 has been something of a cruel master. And while truthfully these are a.) first-world problems, and b.) necessary sacrifices to maintain health and safety, yours truly still longs for the ability to take solace and comfort in the simple joys of abandoning life’s problems, and uniting as one ginormous tribe of nerds, hugging and crying over the excitement generated from the world debut of the most anticipated trailers of the year in Hall H. I miss those days, and if you’re anything like me, I’m sure you all do too.

Thankfully, like Superman watching over the planet, DC is providing us with a ray of hope on an otherwise lost Con season!

Beginning August 22 at 10 am, you will experience — The DC FanDome!

What is DC FanDome?

DC FanDome is a 24 Hour Virtual Experience like no other. From 10 am PDT on August 22 to 10 am on August 23, DC Entertainment will be featuring the largest virtual gathering of talent announcements and content reveals in the history of DC.

Here are the key highlights:

Per the press release, each virtual area will have its own specific scope. Here is the breakdown of each:

Exploring the DC FanDome

The epicenter of the DC FanDome is the Hall of Heroes, where you can experience special programming, panels and content reveals from a wide variety of films, TV series and games, available in several languages, including Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. From there, navigate deeper into the DC Multiverse, exploring five additional satellite worlds, each with its own localized content and unique activities and one world fully devoted to our younger fans:

I’m also excited to say DC will be celebrating diversity, at a time when the world needs it most, with it’s own Blerd and Boujee House:

Pull Up to the Blerd & Boujee House

Where my Blerds at? The second annual celebration of Black nerd culture returns with the all-new Blerd & Boujee House at DC FanDome, bringing Blerds, LatinxGeeks, and all nerds “party-with-a-purpose” vibes. As anyone lucky enough to get into the first-ever Blerd & Boujee boat party (featuring DJ D-Nice) at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 can attest, fans will not want to miss connections and conversations designed for the culture.

More will be revealed as we move closer to the date, but given that the highlights include The Batman, Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, Black Adam, and SHAZAM!, I think it’s safe to say we can expect appearances from some of the best talent, for some of the most anticipated movies of the next few years, and — fingers crossed — maybe even some footage???

Dear God, make it so! I’m incredibly excited, and you should be too. Because with everything going on in the world, I think you deserve a bit of good news, and a genuine Hall H experience delivered right to your screens!
