DC FanDome 2021 Recap

Warner Bros. decided for the second year that they were going to make all of their DC Comics based announcements from their own virtual convention event, much like D&D Celebration a few weeks ago, or like Disney’s D23 biannual event. With SDCC and NYCC out for the second year in a row, it’s solidifying the idea that these massive studios can just hold their own virtual events, and completely control how their announcements and events are held.

DC FanDome obviously had a lot of news, but they didn’t mention everything that they’ve got going on. So I’m going to take a look at pretty much everything DC Comics that’s in the pipeline, so we can be fully caught up on what’s going on across all mediums.
