Two EPIC dates of DC awesomeness await us at DC FanDome. Here’s everything you need to know!
We already knew that DC FanDome was going to the biggest global fan event ever attempted – but with so much to fit into a meager 24-hour window, it was going to be virtually impossible to fit everything in! Well, fear not DC fans – the organizers have heard our pleas loud and clear and have taken the decision to split the event into TWO MASSIVE EVENTS of sheer awesomeness!
Here’s what’s changed:
Part 1: August 22, 2020 – The Hall Of Heroes
DC FanDome has been expanded into two global events — the first on August 22nd, 2020, – DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes, and a second on-demand experience in DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse on September 12th, 2020, where fans can get creative and curate their own adventure. Fans can also access their FanDome experience across all mobile platforms (in addition to desktop). The idea behind making these two events separate is that fans won’t have to stress about missing out on any part of the experience.
At the DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes: On Saturday, August 22, at 10:00 AM PDT, fans will be transported into the DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes, an epic world designed personally by Jim Lee featuring special programming, panels and exclusive reveals from a wide variety of films, TV series, games, comics and more. The eight-hour show will be available for fans around the world to watch exclusively 3x in the 24-hour period.

Part 2: September 12, 2020 – Explore the Multiverse
At the DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse: On Saturday, September 12, at 10:00 AM PDT, fans will be able to create their own timeline! The great thing about this event is that it will be on-demand, giving you the ability to curate your own unique experience via their Official DC FanDome Online Scheduler Tool. A lot of the content that you saw from their multiple islands will now be housed here and will be available for you to watch throughout the 24-hour period. Fans can now choose their own adventure and will have more time to immerse themselves in all the hours of curated programming at their own pace and on their own schedule. This also allows the folks at DC to provide the best user experience, and will now not only be available on your desktop computer but across all mobile devices. DC Kids FanDome will also launch on Saturday, September 12, 2022, at its own kid-friendly companion site at DCKidsFanDome.com. All content from both events will still be available in nine languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.
DC FanDome is going to be a mecca for all things DC. Some of the movies being exhibited via panels at the event include The Suicide Squad, The Batman, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Black Adam, and Wonder Woman 1984. The DCTV library will also make its presence known with panels for The Flash, Doom Patrol, Black Lightning, DC’s Stargirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
This is going to be epic. Having the event scheduled over a single day was going to an uphill battle for most fans – but we are more than ready to immerse ourselves in the best the DC Universe has to offer over TWO epic days. Personally, I cannot wait to strap myself in for The Batman big reveal. During the Hall of Heroes trailer, director Matt Reeves teased us with a potential first look at his upcoming Batman movie, and I a chomping at the bit to get a glimpse at the new Dark Knight.
We’ll see you there, but if you can’t make it – keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account because we’ll be live-tweeting throughout the day!
