This morning, DC Comics and Warner Bros. confirmed they are skipping the impending San Diego Comic-Con@Home Event, which could be perceived as sad news. Until you learn that DC is throwing its own At-Home virtual convention for fans. It’s going to be one big epic party. And it’s free. Now we have confirmation that James Gunn will be bringing his entire cast of The Suicide Squad into homes across the world for this celebration of all things DC, including movies, TV shows, video games and, of course, comics.
James Gunn made the exciting announcement himself today, following the official press release regarding the DC FanDome event shared by Warner Bros. He offers a short teaser for the convention. He also had this to say in regards to participating alongside his All-Star cast of A-List talent.
“Verified. I cannot wait for this; the cast and I will be there and we’re planning so much cool stuff. Link in my bio for more info. #TheSuicideSquad #DCFanDome.”
Warner Bros. and DC are bringing a virtual cavalcade of exciting shows and movies to this stay-at-home event. Included in the line-up of confirmed attendees are Aquaman, The Batman, Batwoman, Black Adam, Black Lightning, DC Super Hero Girls, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s Stargirl, Doom Patrol, The Flash, Harley Quinn, the SnyderCut of Justice League, Lucifer, Pennyworth, SHAZAM!, The Suicide Squad, Supergirl, Superman & Lois, Teen Titans GO!, Titans, Watchmen, Young Justice: Outsiders and, coming this fall to theaters worldwide, Wonder Woman 1984.
