DC Fandome 2021 Recap

Yesterday was a very exciting day for many DC fans as DC Fandome returned for its second virtual convention! Not only did they cover enticing new details about movies like Black Adam and The Flash, but a wide variety of details regarding DC shows in both animation and live-action were revealed today! We will be breaking down the most interesting and awe-inspiring tidbits today regarding products ranging from Stargirl to Young Justice: Phantoms.

The Flash:

The Flash will be heading into its eighth season and we’ll be seeing what other kinds of adventures the team will get into in Central City. Not only will we see the returns of Bart Allen and Nora West, played by Jordan Fisher and Jessica Parker-Kennedy respectively, but we’ll finally see the debut of the golden yellow boots from the comics. For over seven seasons, we’ve been seeing Barry Allen slowly evolve into getting a more comic accurate costume ranging from a brighter color scheme to golden yellow highlights. After much eager anticipation, we finally have a costume that looks like it’s been ripped from the comics itself. The eighth season of The Flash will premiere in November on the CW.

Stargirl: 

Stargirl is currently airing its second season, and we also got a sneak peek into future episodes for the rest of the season. After Courtney is sucked into the Shadowlands, she is in a world where everything is in black and white, but the situation is a bit greyer. Courtney’s friends and family grieve the loss of their daughter and ally as the titular Stargirl tries to find a way to escape her dark purgatory. Stargirl will continue to bring excitement to audiences with its impending third season on The CW next year.

Batwoman: 

Javicia Leslie and Rachel Skarsten headlined the presentation for Batwoman, where the duo play Ryan Wilder and Alice respectively on the series. A sneak peek showcased Batwoman teaming up with the nefarious Alice, according to the orders of Renee Montoya. The two polar opposites will have to face a variety of supervillains ranging from the Mad Hatter to Poison Ivy to Killer Croc. Camrus Johnson also came in discussing Batwing and his new comic story that he wrote starring Luke Fox. The city of Gotham will have plenty to look forward to very soon with this upcoming season of Batwoman

Legends of Tomorrow:

Legends of Tomorrow, which is currently airing on The CW, is going to be hitting a major milestone soon. The series will be hitting its one-hundredth episode, and will have a special celebration to go along with this momentous occasion. Past series regulars like Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, and Wentworth Miller will be returning along with some other exciting characters. A special video celebrating the prior ninety-nine episodes was released, and it seems more than likely that the series will continue to shine on The CW for more years to come.

Naomi: 

The upcoming Ava DuVernay-developed series had its own showcase during DC Fandome, headlined by the show's lead, Kaci Walfall. Walfall discussed her research into the character and how she’s attempting to balance both the teenager and superhero aspects of Naomi in her interpretation of the role. They also showed a preview for the series, and it certainly grabs all of our attention with its unique tone and concepts. Naomi is set to premiere in 2022 on The CW.

Peacemaker:

A roundtable panel with James Gunn, the show’s producers, and the cast consisting of stars like John Cena, Danielle Brooks, and Freddie Stroma was played during the spotlight for Peacemaker. Not only did we get insight on these new characters and what will go down in the show, but we also got another first look at the series in the exclusive trailer. The show highlights that Peacemaker, as vulgar and violent as ever, is back in the superhero game and has some new allies to aid him like Vigilante. HBO Max’s Peacemaker will premiere on Thursday, January 13th to audiences worldwide.

Doom Patrol: 

A trailer was revealed for the rest of season three of Doom Patrol. With only four episodes left, this ragtag team of misfit heroes will have a lot to face and attempt to survive the genuine insanity the world throws at them. Now an HBO Max exclusive series, the cast, featuring major series players like Diane Guerrero, Joivan Wade, and April Bowlby, made an appearance at the end of the trailer for some exciting news. The show has been renewed for a fourth season, and continues more exciting stories with heroes like Robotman, Negative Man, and Crazy Jane! 

Titans:

Everyone’s favorite young superheroes have returned to the center stage as the actor for Dick Grayson, Brenton Thwaites, helped usher in the presentation. First and most importantly, the actor revealed that a fourth season is officially in development as he’s heading up to Canada soon to film more of Titans. What’s even more wonderful is that a special sneak peek was released for the finale for season three, packing in a lot of suspense and action in such a short amount of time.

Harley Quinn: 

In-character appearances by Harley Quinn and King Shark, voiced by Kaley Cuoco and Ron Funches respectively, help debut new unfinished footage for the third season of Harley Quinn. The titular lead initially complained about how long it has taken to animate the season before showing off a little teaser into what to expect for this impending season. The main focus of the sizzle reel is the new blossoming relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy as the duo work off of other well-known allies and foes like Frank the Plant, Kite-Man, and Clayface. While it was certainly hard to get the footage after King Shark mistook the reel for sushi and ate it, we’re all very much intrigued to see where the third season of this incredibly raunchy animated series goes. 

Batman: Caped Crusader: 

The new animated collaboration between Cartoon Network and HBO Max has a lot of talent to go along with this new series. The executive producer line-up will consist of James Tucker, Bruce Timm, JJ Abrams, and Matt Reeves, the director of The Batman. The show is described as incredibly complex and has less limitations in terms of darker elements, but also has a lot of inclusivity and representation. The series is in early development still, but will certainly be a staple in DC animated shows for the foreseeable future!

Young Justice:

After nearly two years of eager waiting and patience from the fandom, HBO Max dropped a new trailer for the fourth season of Young Justice. Subtitled “Phantoms”, the trailer showed off old, beloved characters like Miss Martian, Superboy, and Tigress fighting off new threats and previewing potential new allies. The presentation also surprised us with the reveal that the first two episodes were to drop then and there on the streaming service. New episodes will be every Thursday, this trailer and the episode drop announcements were more than crash!

The Sandman: 

A new look at Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman was released in the form of the first official look at Lucifer. The character will be portrayed by Gwendoline Christie, who’s well-known for her roles in Star Wars and Game of Thrones. The character is shown off in the spotlight in a new poster, along with another one displaying off the large wings of Lucifer. Christie is the current actor to play the role of Lucifer, coming directly after Tom Ellis’ portrayal in the eponymous Netflix series.
