The pandemic changed the entertainment industry like never before, forcing studios to adjust by shifting release dates and closing down in-person events such as San Diego Comic-Con. Still, Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. found a way to announce all of their upcoming projects in a unique way, with the former using Disney's Investor Day while the latter created a virtual event in the form of DC FanDome .
DC FanDome served as a massive online event that played host to a multitude of stars and reveals, cementing the future of the DC brand. Millions of fans reportedly watched the event around the globe, ultimately leading to technical difficulties that somewhat limited viewer experience during the first hours of the convention.
Despite that, DC FanDome was described as a successful event, and many would agree that it paved the way for more online conventions in the near future.
Now, a new confirmation has surfaced that should excite DC fans everywhere.
DC FANDOME IS BACK
DC confirmed in a tweet that DC FanDome will be back as a “global experience” on October 16, 2021.
The announcement video can be seen below:

This announcement shouldn't be surprising, especially after the successful launch of DC FanDome in 2020. Still, the fact that it was confirmed this early should boost the excitement for many fans.
Given that the event will be set in the latter half of 2021, it's reasonable to assume that the reveals that will be in store are for the 2022 slate of the DCEU. This includes the likes of Robert Pattinson's The Batman , and Ezra Miller's The Flash.
The presence of DC FanDome could also mean that Warner Bros. will hold off on revealing new trailers and posters for their upcoming superhero slate, thus placing them as a massive showcase in October 2021.
Setting up an online event also presents a prime opportunity for every cast member to return virtually, giving viewers more insight into upcoming projects. In addition, by once again teasing it as a global experience, it also provides a way for fans to get involved through the event's question and answer program.
Aside from technical difficulties, the first iteration of DC FanDome delivered a worthwhile experience for fans, and the 2021 version has the potential to exceed expectations if done right.
