Final weekend marked the second version of DC FanDome, Warner Bros’ bold on-line occasion that previewed their upcoming content material, together with lots of their ultra-high profile tentpole films. This 12 months’s occasion included our first appears to be like at Aquaman and the Misplaced Kingdom, Black Adam, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Peacemaker, and most impressively of all, Andy Muschietti’s The Flash. We additionally obtained the second full trailer for The Batman, and suffice to say; the occasion was jam-packed from starting to finish. It definitely appears to be like as if the occasion is paying off handsomely for DC and Warner Bros, with them reporting immediately that the Livestream has been seen 66 million occasions up to now!
Now, you’ve obtained handy it to DC. When the pandemic hit and Comedian-Con, as we all know it, was cancelled, they primarily stepped up and made their very own on-line model of the occasion. It was such a roaring success final 12 months that Netflix ultimately launched the same occasion, Tudum, and you may guess that different studios will observe go well with. My solely grievance was that it was a four-hour Livestream as an alternative of scheduled panels, the latter of which made my job as a reporter a bit simpler, however I digress. General it was a extremely gratifying afternoon.
In keeping with the DC press launch, “DC FanDome was a really world expertise, accessible to followers in 12 languages and in over 220 international locations. Followers shared their pleasure on social media, with DC FanDome trending #1 on Twitter for eight hours within the US. DC FanDome additionally trended within the High 50 in 53 international locations world wide. “
With numbers like that, one should assume DC FanDome is right here to remain, though I ponder if this spells the tip of SDCC (San Diego Comedian-Con) as THE place for studios to hype their new films. Solely time will inform.
