DC Fandome live blog — Batman movie trailer, The Flash news and more – Tom’s Guide

Today’s the day for DC Fandome 2021, which is not like last year’s cavalcade of a Comic-Con substitute. Instead of a series of scheduled and timed panels, DC is keeping its format close to its vest, and delivering us the goods across approximately four hours. And the cherry at the very top of this very big sundae (or is it a Saturdae?): we’re getting a new trailer for Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie

But that’s not the only thing to look forward to. Other big DCEU films such as The Flash movie (which has multiple Bat-men in it) and Aquaman 2 will have moments to send fans looking for ticket pre-order information. We’re also getting more looks at upcoming DC shows on HBO Max, including Harley Quinn season 3 and The Peacemaker. 

Even gamers get to indulge, as Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Gotham Knights — games we haven’t heard much of since the last Fandome — will be shown off. We don’t know how much of those titles we’ll see, but we do hope to get a word or two from the latest voice of King Shark: pro wrestler Samoa Joe.

How to watch DC Fandome 2021

Trying to figure out how to watch DC Fandome? The good news is that it’s pretty simple. The event starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT / 6 p.m. BST, and streams at DCFandome.com and DC’s YouTube, Twitch, Facebook and Twitter. 

We’d recommend going for YouTube, though, as it’s typically the most reliable source for getting a high-quality 1080p stream. And if that new Batman trailer is anything like the last one, you’ll need all the resolution you can get to make out details from its dark and murky view of this new chapter of Bruce Wayne’s cinematic story.


And now we’ve just gotten our first idea of when to expect something big from Fandome. The Rock himself, Dwayne Johnson, posted on his Instagram that the new Black Adam look will debut at 10:06 a.m. ET. At the start of the clip it appears we see Black Adam atop a throne in Kahndaq (we think?), and then we get quick shots of Black Adam in costume, to see the textures of his suit.

Check out this clip from his Instagram for yourself.

Fandome hasn’t started yet, but we’ve already got some treats. New posters for The Batman movie (via Empire) bring more of the red-and-black color scheme. The first features Bats himself, but the more interesting (and terrifying) shot is the second image, which appears to be Paul Dano’s The Riddler (see the ? behind his “to the Batman” card).

We think this Riddler will be some kind of full-on creepy Zodiac Killer. But time, and maybe today’s trailer, will tell more.
