How do I tune in?
There’ll be online video panels and teasers to watch, links to follow for games and shopping, and more. Warning: Unlike virtual Comic-Con, which spread out over days, DC FanDome is just 24 hours, which makes for one jam-packed day of events. So if this is your thing, don’t make other plans for Aug. 22.
“Just like a live event, the full DC FanDome experience will be available for 24 hours only,” the FanDome FAQ list warns. “If you don’t watch it during the 24 hours, you will miss it (unless you have access to time travel).”
DC has announced that the center of the experience will be called the Hall of Heroes. Its programming is an eight-hour block, which will rerun three times during the 24-hour timeline, so those in different global time zones can tune in.
Hall of Heroes will feature programming, panels and content reveals from everything DC. There will be smaller satellite worlds, such as the KidsVerse, that can be navigated to from there. Programming will be available in Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
