It is very clear that DC and Warner Bros. are sparing no expense for DC Fandome, as the event is arguably pulling more star-power than San Diego Comic-Con and the anticipation among fans is justifiable reaching a fever pitch! DC has come back to commandeer the hype train during the chaotic shifts of 2020, and "DC FanDome is looking more and more like a culmination of that PR advancement," according to ComicBook.com's Kofi Outlaw!
Black Adam is currently set to hit theaters in December of 2022.
