The DC Fandome Makes A Superhero Landing In 2021

The DC Fandome is returning once again in 2021 after yet another Comic-Con is cancelled, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The virtual conference with plenty of panels and announcements is expected to share news on upcoming movies, games, shows, and comics in DC’s slate. Not much news has been given about the event, but we do know that the DC Fandome will be streamed on October 16, 2021.

It makes sense that Warner Bros wants to bring the DC Fandome back. In its inaugural showing, it received 22 million views across 220 countries and territories around the world. To put that into context, the Oscars didn’t even get half of that during this year’s show. With positive word of mouth from fans, that number can certainly increase.

There are a ton of projects that the Superman publisher could showcase in 2021. Black Adam has begun shooting with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Pierce Brosnan on set. It’s due to release in theatres on July 29, 2022, and the DC Fandome would be a perfect time to show a teaser trailer for the project. Detective Comics could even go into casting details for their upcoming slate like The Flash, Aquaman 2, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Batgirl, or perhaps Steven Spielberg’s take on Blackhawk.

On the gaming front, there are two major superhero projects in the works. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is Rocksteady’s next project and will feature co-op action and live service mechanics. We don’t know too much about the game, but Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark will be playable. We haven’t received much word about the game since its debut during the last DC Fandome, but Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League could certainly reappear during this year’s event.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros Montreal is working on Gotham Knights, a co-op title that takes place after the death of Batman. Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and the Red Hood all team up to protect Gotham from the villains of the city.

In addition, speculation has begun on what NetherRealm Studios’ next game will be. It typically switches between Mortal Kombat and the DC fighting game Injustice every few years. However, recent rumors suggest that it might be a Marvel game instead. What gives this rumor some credence is that Warner Bros has worked with Disney before on the release of Cars 3: Driven To Win and Lego The Incredibles. Injustice 3 wouldn’t be out of the question, however.
