DC Comics and Warner Bros. today hosted their first FanDome event, a virtual convention that featured new movie trailers, announcements and exciting gameplay material.
From Warner Goths. A lot has happened at Games Montreal's Gotham Knights reveal (including nearly eight minutes of footage) up to the first trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League and an update on Neil Gaiman's Sandman series on Netflix. Here are DC FanDome's greatest moments (and videos). If you missed it, encore panels will play for the next few hours. For a full list of re-shows, see the DC FanDome schedule.
Gotham Knights Announcement: As mentioned above, one of the biggest announcements fans have been waiting for more than a year – Gotham Knights is the new open world title from Warner Bros. Games Montreal. The developers brought a four-minute film trailer that introduced the various playable characters (including Batgirl and Robin) as well as the gameplay material.
Zack Snyder's Justice League Pendant: In Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", the trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League has finally arrived. The trailer features a number of completely new scenes that were not in the original version of the film, which was released in 2017. There's no specific release date yet, but Snyder's version of Justice League will hit HBO Max in 2021 and will air in four hour-long installments.
First look at Robert Pattinson in The Batman: Director Matt Reeves and star Robert Pattinson brought the first official trailer for The Batman to FanDome. The trailer builds a crime-ridden Gotham City (surprise, surprise) in which Bruce Wayne tries to find his place in it all. There are appearances by Zoe Kravitz & # 39; Catwoman, Jeffrey Wrights, James Gordon and others.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League betray: Rocksteady Studios (the team behind Arkham City and Arkham Knight) finally revealed their new game Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League with a long trailer. The title is a new action game starring the infamous team of supervillains and, according to Rocksteady, a sequel to the Arkham universe. How this will actually work is currently unclear. The game will be released in 2022 for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer introduces Cheetah: Yes, Gal Gadot is back as Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) and Chris Pine is back as Steve Trevor, but the coolest part of the new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer is Kristen Wiig's Cheetah. Although Wiig's Barbara was featured in the first trailer, it was the first time we saw her transform into the vicious character. Somewhere Cats director Tom Hooper cheers silently.
The suicide squad List of villains revealed: While we didn't get a full trailer for The Suicide Squad (director James Gunn is in the editorial bay), we did get an "Appeal" teaser that reveals the villain's lineup. Plus, a pretty fun behind-the-scenes feature gives us a glimpse into the director's sequel.
The new costume of lightning: A panel for Andy Muschietti's The Flash was short and sweet, and while there's no teaser yet, we got our first look at Barry Allen's new costume. Ezra Miller will repeat the role.
First look at Dwayne Johnson in Black Adam: Dwayne Johnson collaborated with DC Comics' Jim Lee and artist BossLogic to create a cool concept video for Black Adam. The video gives an insight into Johnson in Black Adam costume. Johnson spent the panel answering questions from fans about how powerful Black Adam is, which drew him to the role ("I love that he's an antihero") and the story he wants to explore. Johnson also teased how certain Justice Society of America characters – Hawkman, Doctor Fate, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher – are included in Black Adam.
Netflix Sandman Series update: Neil Gaiman's Sandman series is still running on Netflix, but it is unclear when the series will debut due to production issues caused by COVID-19. An interesting note from Gaiman: Netflix's version of The Sandman will still "start in 1916, but what happens in Sandman 1, the point where the story begins is not 1988. It's now." In this way, Gaiman and his team can think about what this means "for the gender of the characters, what will this do for the nature of the characters". Gaiman called it a pretty "liberating" experience.
