The DC Fandome streamed live and free this weekend, announcing their projected line-up of video game, tv series, and film releases projected for the year of 2021. DC Fandome is a fan conference centered around the DC comics universe held every year. It was unable to take place physically due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so in its place the company streamed live interviews and teasers for upcoming productions for eight hours nonstop. Cineflix Daily viewed the event and here are the most anticipated productions for the year of 2012:
One of the most exciting and well- received announcements was the newest trailer for Patty Jenkins’ WONDER WOMAN 1984, showcasing Kristen Wiig’s transformation into the supervillan, Cheetah, and still raising questions as to the return of beloved Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Much like its predecessor, the film boasts breathtaking cinematography and is expected to blow away box office numbers (and fans) once again.
Zack Snyder’s re-cut of his 2017 JUSTICE LEAGUE film was given an updated teaser, and it was announced the new version will be aired on HBO Max in four hour-long installments in 2021. The trailer teases added scenes to the film and has been donned with #SnyderCut to increase visibility and awareness of the re-cut.
A trailer was released for Matt Reeves’ much anticipated, THE BATMAN next year, and features Robert Pattinson taking on the titular role. While, initially there was controversy over the casting of the beloved character, after viewing the teaser, many critics have gone silent. Reeves’ trailer depicts the expected dark and gritty Gotham, but unexpectedly has Pattinson embody a moody and vengeful Dark Knight whose aesthetic forces back memories of the 2010s emo-craze. The Riddler (Paul Dano) and The Penguin (Colin Farrell) will be getting some newfound attention after recent years of oversaturation of The Joker, who, thankfully, will not be making an appearance. Catwoman, however, looks to be included, and played by Zoe Kravitz. Excitement and controversy are sure to surround the film when it premieres October 2021.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD didn’t present fans with a trailer, but director James Gunn, did supply a teaser that features the cast line-up. Margot Robbie will, of course, be reprising Harley Quinn, a role she has no doubt made uniquely hers. Joel Kinnaman will also be returning as Rick Flag, Jai Courtenay as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. It does not look as if any others from the first film will be joining. Exciting new additions are Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Pete Davidson as Blackguard, Nathan Fillion as T.D.K, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, and John Cena as Peacemaker. Taika Waititi is also on the cast listing for the film, but no character is listed, and was absent from the teaser, which has fans teeming with excitement and curiosity. The film is expected to release in August 2021.
Jaume Collet-Serra’s BLACK ADAM was revealed in an animated teaser, featuring narration by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The character is known as a main villain to the comic book hero, SHAZAM!, whose 2019 feature appearance was directed by David F. Sandberg. It’s unknown if Shazam will appear in BLACK ADAM, but it is doubtful. Rumors circulating are that they will make their crossover in a third installment, but as the plot for Johsnon’s character has not yet been presented, it is still up for debate, however the film is still slated to premiere December 2021.
