got the lion’s share of the attention at DC FanDome, a metric ton of other projects were showcased at the event. All with surprises of their own. Here are some of the biggest reveals from DC FanDome 2021.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods
Asher Angel and Zachary Levi took to the virtual stage at DC FanDome, which shows the
family getting together once more. Only this time, they are taking on Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, and Rachel Zegler as the goddesses Hespera, Calypso, and another unnamed daughter of Atlas. “Fury of the Gods,” indeed!

The Suicide Squad
, and we’re about to see more of him and his tighty whities in James Gunn’s new HBO Max series
. At the panel were Cena (Peacemaker), Freddie Stroma (Vigilante), Steve Agee (John Economos), Danielle Brooks (Leota Adebayo), Jennifer Holland (Emilia Harcourt), and Chukwudi Iwuji (Clemson Murn). They promised that his adventure with Task Force X was just the tip of the iceberg, and it sure looks that way to us. You can watch the hilarious teaser trailer below, which also announced
January 13 2022 debut.
Gotham City’s librarian turned vigilante is getting her own film at long last, heading straight to HBO Max. On hand were directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, screenwriter Christina Hodson (
Birds of Prey
), and Leslie Grace (Barbara Gordon). Although the film is only in pre-production, we did learn that Babs will indeed have her signature red hair, and wear a cowl and not a domino mask, as in recent comics. They’re keepin’ it old school. We got one glimpse of concept art, with Batgirl perched among the Gotham City gargoyles.
The four detailed their ideas for the series, with Timm saying “It’s more Batman than
Batman the Animated Series,
I get to do what I want to do” This alludes to a more mature take on Batman than the animated series from the ’90s. Expect a 1940s, noir-esque take, with a young Dark Knight with few gadgets, and no superhero allies. It’s Batman “back to basics.”
Warner Bros. Animation
Speaking of animated adventures in Gotham City, an anime-style film based on Selina Kyle also got a moment to show off.

, we got our first glimpse of the live-action Batwing, Luke Fox. As comics fans know, Luke is the son of longtime Batman ally (and brilliant inventor) Lucius Fox. Actor Camrus Johnson hosted a video spotlight on his transformation into the heroic Batwing, which you can view down below, along with a special season three trailer.
It’s not just the big-screen version of Barry Allen that’s getting a costume upgrade. In anticipation of season eight of
TV series, Grant Gustin revealed the finishing touch to his ever-evolving costume. The Scarlet Speedster will finally run in his gold boots from the comics, completing the classic DC look.
Gustin said the new boots as “the final element that’s been missing. I’ve loved all the versions of The Flash suit we’ve had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest to the many iterations you see in the comic books—with the exception of those gold boots! I’ve always felt that those boots would be the final touch.” The costume, which you can check out down below.
