On Saturday, Warner Bros. and DC hosted the inaugural DC FanDome; a virtual event packed full of talent, announcements, panels, trailers and more. Take a look below for the biggest news…

10. John Ridley’s Batman

John Ridley, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “12 Years a Slave,” will write a new Batman comic book miniseries. The four-issue run will centre on the family of Lucius Fox, and likely feature Batman as a person of colour.

9. WW84

The cast of the movie along with director, Patty Jenkins, debuted a brand new trailer for WW84, giving us our first look at Kristen Wiig as the villainous Cheetah.

8. Suicide Squad revealed

Director James Gunn has been keeping many of the character details a secret for his Suicide Squad reboot – going as far as saying no one had correctly guessed who Idris Elba would be playing. However, he’s finally broken his silence, releasing a full character announcement, along with some behind-the-scenes footage and more information about what to expect from the 2021 movie.

7. The Flash gets a new suit

Last week it was announced that Ben Affleck has signed on to Ezra Miller’s solo The Flash movie, alongside fellow-Batman Michael Keaton, fuelling speculation that the movie will explore the DC Multiverse. Director, Andy Muschietti producer Barbara Muschietti, writer Christina Hodson and Ezra Miller himself gave us more information about the Flashpoint-inspired movie.

Barry Allen, obsessed with saving his late mother, will use his quantum speed powers, causing a rupture between the multiverses. The panel also showcased some key art featuring Michael Keaton’s Batman, a new Flash suit designed and built by Bruce Wayne, and confirmation that Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen adopts The Flash mantel after meeting Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen in the Crisis on Infinite Earths story-line in The Flash TV show.

6. Shazam! sequel announced

The “Shazam” sequel received an official title as “Shazam: Fury of the Gods,” but the cast didn’t give any other hints away. Comedian Sinbad made a brief cameo, leading many to wonder if he’ll appear in the upcoming movie.

5. Dwayne Johnson making superhero debut as Black Adam

Dwayne Johnson is making his superhero debut as the anti-hero Black Adam. Although no footage has yet been shot, Dwayne unveiled an animated teaser created by Boss Logic and Jim Lee, explaining a little about the character and his origins. The actor revealed that the Justice Society of America (JSA), made up of Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Cyclone and Atom Smasher, will appear in the film.

4. Batman is dead

Or at least in the Gotham Knights video game, announced by Warner Bros. Games Montreal. The studio have long been teasing a new Batman game and revealed the world trailer of the upcoming co-op RPG, where players take control of Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing and Red Hood to save Gotham from villains like Mr. Freeze and the Court of Owls.

3. The Suicide Squad are hunting The Justice League

Another Suicide Squad announcement, this time in games. As developers Rocksteady Studios, the creators of the much-loved Batman Arkham franchise, debut the reveal trailer for upcoming Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.

Confirmed to be a continuation of the Arkham games, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark must hunt down their next targets: Superman and a brain-washed Justice League.

2. The Snyder Cut

After years of speculation – and some outright denial that it exists – Zack Snyder finally debuts the first trailer for his Justice League cut, coming to HBO Max in 2021 in the US, with other international platforms to be announced. (Sky, in the UK?)

Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be released in four hour-long instalments, with previously unused footage of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, a black-suited Superman and the villain, Darkseid.

1. The Batman

With just 25% of the movie shot before COVID-19 shut things down, Matt Reeves was still able to steal the FanDome show with a moody Batman teaser. Reeves, clearly passionate about the titular character, the villains and the canon, talked about how the film is set in Bruce Wayne’s second year as the caped crusader. He also explained how the villains – Paul Dano’s Riddler, Colin Farrel’s Penguin and Zoe Kravtiz’ Catwoman are still young, too, and in their own journeys to becoming the iconic villains.

Reeves also confirmed that the spin-off show, Gotham PD, will be a prequel set in Batman’s Year One and will address the corruption within Gotham and it’s police department.

DC’s FanDome returns on September 12. DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse will offer viewers an on-demand experience with their choice of panels, cosplay, fan art and comics, as well as special events for children.
