DC officially announces that the next DC FanDome will be divided into two events delaying some of its panels to the month of September
DC FanDome will now be split into two events, with the second taking place in September. Instead of having panels at San Diego Comic-Con this year, DC decided to hold its own virtual convention to promote its future projects.
DC FanDome is billed as a massive event featuring DC comics related movies, TV shows, comics, video games, and more. Planning a large number of panels, with a long list of guests attending to discuss what is to come in all areas of DC.
As the DC FanDome date approaches, entrants are doing their part to promote the event. Last week, the official calendar was released, revealing when fans could see the event panels, from Justice League Snyder Cut, The Suicide Squad and the various Arrowverse series among others. As exciting as the DC FanDome is, it also runs the risk of overwhelming fans with too much DC news so instead of sticking to the initial plan of a 24-hour marathon, DC has decided to split the FanDome in two. separate events.
FanDome is now two events. The first, entitled DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes, which will take place next Saturday, August 22, date initially reserved for the FanDome and the other, which is DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, scheduled for Saturday, September 12. Most notably, all panels in the WatchVerse, YouVerse, InsiderVerse, FunVerse, and DC Kids FanDome categories will move to the September event instead of the scheduled date. You can watch the trailer for Hall of Heroes below:
This move is smart on DC's part as it divides the movie and TV panels. Most of the Arrowverse performances are part of the WatchVerse schedule, so now they have their own day to get the limelight instead of sharing space with the movies.
Hall of heroes will feature a number of films including Justice League, Wonder Woman 1984 and The Suicide Squad, the latter showing early footage from the James Gunn film, and it is extremely plausible that they would have ended up overshadowing the rest of the FanDome activities. . Now, DC can fully focus on pushing its upcoming movies on Saturday and giving its TV shows the attention they deserve in a few weeks.
Another benefit of splitting up the DC FanDome is that it will make the event much more digestible for virtual attendees. Rather than having everything within the same 24 hour window, the August 22 event will now run a much more manageable 8 hours, with multiple repeating performances throughout the day. For Explore the Multiverse in September, fans will be able to “choose their own adventure” by choosing the panels that interest them most. Rather than having a strict schedule, it appears that content from WatchVerse, YouVerse, InsiderVerse, FunVerse, and DC Kids FanDome will be available 24 hours a day, and fans will have the option to watch whatever they want on demand. A great way to let people personalize their DC FanDome experience.
