What Time Does DC FanDome Start?

DC FanDome is finally upon us! Tomorrow, the highly-touted virtual event will kick off, that Warner Bros. says is set to unite the best of movies, television, video games, comics, and more. When it was first announced, there was going to be about 100 hours of programming taking place simultaneously over 24 hours on August 22. Earlier this week, fans got a surprising update: FanDome would actually be splitting into two events -- one on Saturday, August 22nd, and a second on Saturday, September 12th. The idea is that the change will allow fans a chance to fully experience some of the event's smaller offerings in September, while the August event will focus on the biggest panels in the "Hall of Heroes" section.

Basically, we have movies, video games, and a little TV coming tomorrow. Then comics, TV, and more hitting next month -- with a programming schedule that will be available on demand in September, versus airing in real time tomorrow. The change also slightly shook up the panel schedule for the Hall of Heroes, changing fans' expectations for the day and the event on the same week that they had previously allowed people to make a virtual scheudle for themselves.

Perhaps the biggest surprises from this new schedule are The Flash and Titans moving to the Hall of Heroes roster, while the standalone panels for shows like Doom Patrol, Legends of Tomorrow, Lucifer, Stargirl, Batwoman, Superman & Lois, and Harley Quinn are all postponed to the September date. The heavily-speculated-about "secret movie" panel - which was initially scheduled at 5:45 pm at the Hall of Heroes - is also now seemingly off of the schedule entirely.

DC FanDome will occur on Saturday, August 22nd, beginning at 12 pm CT.
