First off the poster - seeing Tyler’s Superman represented at the tippy top :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Also John-- ahem, Peacemaker randomly saluting in the back is so funny to me lol

So looking at the website for FanDome, I noticed that they had the free comics up and then noticed that they happened to have the first eight issues of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman on there. I decided to look at DCUI and lo and behold, they’re on here now too!

I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the last/first Fandome. It felt a lot like watching an E3 presentation centered around the comic characters I love.

The things I’m hoping to hear the most about are:

  • The HBOMax movies/series we’ve been teased about (Green Lantern, Blue Beetle, Black Canary, etc.).
  • I’m also really interested in getting a tease at the stories that Ta-Nehisi Coates and Michael B. Jordan plan to tell with their two seperate Superman movies.
  • Some actual gameplay for the Suicide Squad game would be appreciated.
  • Some early footage or bts info on Black Adam and The Flash (similar to how they did with The Suicide Squad last year).
  • And overall just DC’s plans for the future. What are their goals for the stories they hope to tell and show off? What social change/good do they want to make and how will they achieve it? Perhaps that’s a bit of a lofty request, but I like it when artistic companies like this have a goal in mind with what they want to achieve beyond just, “make cool stuff.”

Overall, though, my biggest hope is that they make it shorter and more fast paced. Like I said, I loved DC Fandome last year, but it was a FULL DAY’s worth of watching. I’m fine if they have the panels and cosplay showcase and all that stuff. But it’d be nice if we could also get a quick 20-30 minute long video of back to back trailers, director/writer spotlights on the movies that don’t have them, etc. Think like a Nintendo Direct for DC.

I think they’ve said that this year’s Fandome will be four hours, so half the length of last year’s.

So stoked that it’s coming in at 4 hours, loved the first one but can’t devote a full day in the post vax world

That’s an upgrade for sure. Still a pretty big commitment, but deinitely not as overwhelming as last year. As long as there’s not too much fluff, then I’m in.

If there’s no mention of Wolf Among Us Season Two, I will assume it’s dead.

Wait is that… our first look at Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman? To the left of Black Adam?

4 Likes

Yes. Although, I wouldn’t consider it our first look since she did appear in the first trailer for The Batman.

She did? I don’t think we saw what her outfit looked like very well.

Thanks, I thought it was a much murkier look.

Not very reassuring. They’ve been “on game dev” for about a year, if not more, now.

To be fair Covid also happened/still happening which shook a lot of game development across the industry. Maybe there could’ve been more news if that didn’t happen, either way unless said other wise if they say they’re working on it sounds like it’s being worked on. It’ll just be wait and see like everything else for now.

Edit: The game’s also being made by 2 different companies as oppose to just Telltale and being development from scratch on Unreal Engine 4 rather than Telltale Tool Engine. So these could also have been factors take into consideration for dev time along with Covid disruptions.

My gurrrlll in her super spiffy Gotham Knights gear, DCSHGs, TTG, AND KTJL Harls all made it onto the poster. Woo-Hoo! :smiley: :purple_heart:

Really looking forward to seeing Zoey K. as Selina in The Batman. Thx for posting these @Jay_Kay. :+1:

The pandemic still hit games like Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, yet they were still able to release something for the public. Granted, maybe the new makers of Telltale want a finished product before sharing a snippet or they care more about a final product than even trying to scramble to make something for a clip, but when they have been sitting on this look for almost a year now:

I think it’s time to reassure fans in some way.
