The Biggest Announcements From DC FanDome

DC just dumped a multiverse of announcements on our heads! New movies, new TV shows and new video games were all revealed today during the FanDome virtual convention. We may write about some of these reveals in greater detail later, but for now, here’s the biggest news of FanDome summarized in one place.

NEW TRAILER FOR WONDER WOMAN 1984: I recently spotted a candy bar at the Target checkout line that had Gal Gadot in armor and the words “SEE WONDER WOMAN THIS JUNE.” No one saw Wonder Woman this June, but DC is promising we WILL see it this October, no matter what medium it has to be delivered through. And to prove it, here’s a new trailer, revealing the movie’s villain Cheetah, played by Kristen Wiig. She is not an actual cheetah in the comics but…she sure is here.

FIRST TRAILER FOR ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE: The most anticipated news from DC FanDome was about the Snyder Cut of Justice League — how much would they reveal? Here’s what we know now: Snyder’s version will be four hours long, it will be delivered in four separate slices on HBO Max in 2021, Darkseid will play an actual part in it, Superman will have a black suit, and Snyder really, really loves “Hallelujiah” by Leonard Cohen.

FIRST LOOK AT THE SUICIDE SQUAD: Is this a sequel or a reboot? We’re leaning more toward “sequel” now since Margot Robbie is once again Harley Quinn, and several other actors from the 2016 version are back (we could still be proved wrong). Harls will be joined by new faces Idris Elba as Bloodsport, John Cena as Peacemaker, Storm Reid as Tyla (Bloodsport’s daughter) and the voice of Steve Agee as a CGI King Shark. Pete Davidson and his giant horse teeth will also make an appearance.

THE BATMAN TEASER: The newest Batman, Robert Pattinson, shows off his scowl in this trailer that begins with the dramatic sound of duct tape bring ripped off a roll. Pattinson will be joined by Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Penguin, and Jaffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. The movie is coming in 2021.

GOTHAM KNIGHTS VIDEO GAME: We already spent an entire post on this, but to summarize it, Gotham Knights is the next Batman video game — only it doesn’t have Batman. Bruce Wayne is dead, and his disciples are currently struggling to fill the void. It’s a co-op game in an open-world Gotham where you can be Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing or Red Hood.

SINBAD IN SHAZAM 2: It’s going to be a ridiculously long time before we see Shazam 2 (which has now been subtitled Fury of the Gods), but the crew was able to confirm one thing this far out: Sinbad (as in the comedian from all those 90s movies) will be part of the cast. Obviously, the casting is partly a joke referring to the most commonly cited example of the Mandela Effect — that people falsely remember the Shaq genie movie Kazaam as a Sinbad genie movie called Shazam.
