DC FanDome, the 24-hour online event for all of DC’s comics, takes place on August 22. Today DC revealed many guests who will be attending, and the list is huge. That’s just about everyone you can imagine from all areas of DC.
The video above features dozens of names, and also includes the disclaimer of “and many others”, so it’s not even the full list. But among the names there are some big hitters including Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson, which means it looks like we’ll have some news on The Batman. Zack Snyder is also in attendance, so news about his cut from the Justice League could also be part of the proceedings. As for other DC talent, expect big stars like Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Kristen Wig from Wonder Woman 1984 are here, along with director Patty Jenkins. Dwayne Johnson is also coming for the ride, so the Black Adam news may be on the cards. James Gunn and Viola Davis are also confirmed, so hopefully that means an update on The Suicide Squad will take place as well. Andy and Barbara Muschietti are also there, presumably to chat with Ezra Miller about the Flash movie. And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without Harley Quinn herself, Margot Robbie.From the DC television world, Kaley Cuoco, Lake Bell, and Alan Tudyk are in attendance on the Harley Quinn show, as well as cast members from Greg Berlanti’s Arrowverse shows, including fan favorites Caity Lotz and Grant Gustin.
WB Games will also be showing Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad video game, and Troy Baker and Nolan North are also showing up. Maybe they have roles in Rocksteady’s latest?
And, of course, you can also expect some big names from the medium that started it all: the comics themselves. Expect comic book superstars Jim Lee, Brian Michael Bendis, Grant Morrison, G. Willow Wilson, Mark Waid, Matthew Wilson, Scott Snyder and more.
Beyond the talents themselves, there is the list of hosts, presenters and special guests, which – as before – is accompanied by a “and many more!” caveat. But announced so far are Aisha Tyler, Aline Diniz, Andrea Delogu, Chella Man, Clara Amfo, D-Nice, Damian Molla, Dominik Porschen, Erico Borgo, Estelle, Gaby Cam, Gael Monfils, Geoff Keighley, Gino Quillamor, HER , Jayden Rodrigues, Karama, Lilico, Nyambi Nyambi, Sam Wright, Terry Ltam, Tyrone Edwards, Venus Williams and Will Arnett.
DC FanDome is a 24-hour fan event that takes place online on August 22. With no big DC presence as part of ComicCon @ Home this year, it looks like this will be the place for any big DC news in 2020.
