DC Comics is holding a virtual fan event called DC FanDome.

The full DC FanDome schedule has been released.

The scheduling site for DC’s free, virtual fan event launched last Friday, revealing more than 100 hours of various presentations, discussions, screenings and musical performances.

Kicking off on August 22 at 10 am PDT (August 23 10pm Hong Kong time), the 24-hour DC FanDome celebrates everything DC: comic books, films, television shows, games and more. The programming, featuring over 300 guests, will be accessible through the six different areas, called “Verses” here, of DCFanDome.com .

The schedule for DC FanDome’s virtual main hall, called the Hall of Heroes, includes panels for DC’s most anticipated upcoming films such as Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, The Batman, The Flash, Black Adam and the long cut of director Zack Snyder’s Justice League, as well as a spotlight on the Sandman Universe and the women of colour who portray some of DC TV’s most memorable characters.

Unique programmes are also scheduled for the five other immersive “Verses” of DC FanDome. The WatchVerse area will host programming for DC’s television series such as The Flash, Black Lightning, Batwoman, Pennyworth, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s Stargirl and Doom Patrol.

The KidsVerse will house children’s programming and sneak peeks, YouVerse will be home to fan-generated content, the InsiderVerse will offer behind-the-scenes looks at all areas of the DC universe, and the FunVerse is the place to head for merchandise and activities.
