DC FanDome: How To Watch, When It Starts, And More
Updated: Oct 14, 2021
It doesn't matter whether you like to keep up with your favorite DC superheroes through comics, movies, tv shows, or games. This weekend, it all comes together in one amazing online event called DC FanDome.
FanDome is a free (yes, totally free) live stream event taking place on October 16th. It promises to have trailers, news, and previews that show what kind of action your DC heroes will find in the near future.
The event streams right from DCFanDome.com, and will also be available live on Twitch and YouTube. It begins at 10 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, and is expected to run for about 4 hours. If you miss anything, select portions of the event will remain available on the website until the end of October.
It's for fans all across the globe, with subtitles in 12 different languages - Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Traditional Chinese. The website FAQ promises that content will feature translations wherever possible.
The site also notes that "Overall, the content featured in DC FanDome will not have explicit sex, drugs, excessive violence, etc. Where content might not be appropriate for some viewers, an explicit disclosure will be made prior to screening that material." However, younger children are encouraged to head to their own event at DCKidsFanDome.com for a 'kid-friendly' experience.
Between now and then, check out the site for sneak peeks and bonus content. Check back regularly, as it changes often.
The event started in 2020. It was initially held in response to the pandemic since traditional in-person conventions had to be canceled. Since in-person events were difficult or impossible to host, they simply pivoted to an online platform.
As we're seeing with many other changes originally stemming out of necessity to the pandemic - sometimes the new methods have an advantage. DC FanDome has taken off in popularity in just these last two years, and it may be here to stay.
