The closer Fandome gets, the more details Warner Bros. is releasing. And from the looks of it, this is going to be one of the most intricate and interactive fan convention alternatives to hit the internet this year.
For those who missed the initial Fandome announcement, here’s the general idea: There will be six virtual areas to explore, with the main Hall of Heroes basically serving as Fandome’s Hall H. Then, there are five offshoot “worlds,” DC WatchVerse (streaming additional DC content), DC YouVerse (full of fan-generated content), DC KidsVerse (family-friendly activations), DC InsiderVerse (behind-the-scenes content from artists and creators), and DC FunVerse (digital shareables, a comic book reader, and activities).
Because the event only lasts 24 hours, the schedule for each of these areas — which just went live today — is jam-packed with things to do and A-list panels. Fans can create a Fandome account and check out the full schedule here, and use the interactive scheduling feature to plan out their entire Fandome experience.
Hall of Heroes highlights include a Wonder Woman 1984 panel, a The Suicide Squad panel, and a Snyder Cut panel. The other areas have plenty of exciting content, too, including a Black Lightning panel (WatchVerse), a Batwoman panel (WatchVerse), and tons of behind-the-scenes content from DC Comics creators.
All of the major panels will rebroadcast a few times throughout the 24-hour event, so fans around the world can tune in at a time that’s most convenient for them.
Of course, we are all about the merch here at the Pop Insider, and there is plenty of that to be found at Fandome, too. The FunVerse area promises a DC Fandome e-store, while the InsiderVerse will give fans a look at the latest DC items from Hot Wheels, DK Book Publishers, Penguin Random House, and Insight Editions.
