DC FanDome Brings the Fandoms and Star Power Online Aug 22

If you watched the San Diego Comic-Con online last month, you may have wondered where all the DC comics/movies/TV show panels were. That was because the comic giant was planning their own shindig, DC FanDome, which happens this Saturday, August 22.

DC FanDome will be 24 hours of panels featuring nearly every current and upcoming project in the DC extended universe., and it’ll be free for everyone!

The programming contains more than 100 hours of unique content via six distinct virtual areas, with many of the film and TV panels taking place in Hall of Heroes and WatchVerse.

The FanDome will also include areas to explore the latest news from WB Games, artists and comics via YouVerse, InsiderVerse, FunVerse, and DC Kids FanDome.
