DC FanDome Lineup: Huge Talent Roster Offers Clues As To What Will Be Featured

The all-star lineup for DC FanDome 2021 has been announced, and the huge roster includes cast, crew, and creators from a variety of movies, TV shows, comics, and games.

The guest list for this year’s global streaming event, which is due to air on October 16, includes dozens of notable names, including big hitters such as Matt Reeves, Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz, which means we’ll likely hear more news and gossip around The Batman – plus see a brand new trailer for the film.

Dwayne Johnson, Noah Centineo, Pierce Brosnan, Aldis Hodge and Quintessa Swindell are also in attendance, so we should expect updates on Black Adam, while the virtual stage also prepares to invite The Flash star Ezra Miller under the projectors. Grant Gustin and Candice Patton of the CW superhero show is also listed as a contestant.

While we knew that Warner Bros. Games will feature new reveals from the highly anticipated Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, interestingly Ed Boon, the creator of the Injustice game series, is also set to make an appearance. Epic CCO Donald Mustard is also listed, which means we can expect a Fortnite announcement as well.

Both Jason Momoa and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II are in the game, so hopefully that signals some upcoming news for Aquaman 2. Likewise, Zachary Levi is part of the proceedings, so we’re expecting to hear more. on Shazam! Fury of the gods. Injustice movie voice actor Anson Mount is also there, presumably for the first look at the project.

From DC Television World, Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch, Jordan Elsass, and Alex Garfin feature from The CW’s Superman & Lois, along with a cast roster from other popular shows such as Batwoman, Sweet Tooth, and Supergirl , which is set to receive a parting tribute as it nears its epic conclusion after six seasons.

HBO Max will premiere the Suicide Squad spin-off Peacemaker, with James Gunn making an appearance at the event. John Cena, who plays the show’s title character, reprising his role from The Suicide Squad, will also take the stage alongside co-stars Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Holland, Freddie Stroma and Chukwudi Iwuji.

The DC Comics contingent is set to focus heavily on Wonder Woman, highlighting three new books, though there are also plans to show more of the Batman/Fortnite comic book crossover, Batman: Fear State, Black Manta miniseries and the return of Milestone Universe, with DC publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee, also confirmed to attend.

DC FanDome found success as a virtual event in August 2020, having been conceived in the wake of the cancellation of San Diego Comic-Con that same year. Virtual panels covered many of the best films expected at that time, including the Snyder Cut of Justice League and The Batman. The event was ultimately seen by 22 million people in over 220 countries.

The second annual virtual DC FanDome will be presented on October 16 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific / 1:00 p.m. Eastern / 6:00 p.m. UK (i.e. October 17 at 3:00 a.m. AEST). Check IGN for all the latest trailers, news and announcements from the show.
