There won’t be a DC FanDome event in 2022, according to Warner Bros. Discovery. The disappointing news was announced at the same time as a major reorganisation of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) that resulted in the cancellation of numerous projects, including the films Supergirl and Wonder Twins, as well as the Batgirl television series by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
The DC FanDome was built in 2020 as a way to keep fans excited throughout the pandemic. It has had two successful runs, during which Warner Bros. released teasers for eagerly anticipated films like James Gunn’s Peacemaker and The Batman from Matt Reeves. The event acted as a welcome replacement for all the in-person events that were postponed due to Covid and allowed the cast and crew of significant DCEU films to unveil behind-the-scenes secrets.
The official statement has revealed the reason behind the cancellation of the event. The statement reads, “With the return of in person events, Warner Bros. Discovery is excited to be able to engage with our fans live at numerous comic-cons around the world and will not be scheduling DC FanDome for 2022.”
Warner Bros. Discovery also cancelled other film projects in favour of a single theatrical strategy, didn’t renew Young Justice, and fully shelved Batman: Caped Crusader. Reeves’ portion of the Batverse appears to be secure, and Joker: Folie à Deux is moving quickly. While Warner Bros. Discovery talks about a 10-year plan that will supposedly unite all of the productions under a single roof, similar to what Marvel Studios does, the entire future of DC’s motion pictures and television programmes is out in the air.
