Last weekend, the first part of the DC FanDome virtual convention took place, where trailers of new films and games from the DC universe were shown. The second part of the event is scheduled for September 12.
One of the most anticipated films of 2021 is the new Batman, starring Robert Pattinson. The video also features the characters Deffrey Wright (James Gordon) and Zoe Kravitz (Catwoman). The film is directed by Matt Reeves. At the moment, the film is only 30% filmed, however, we received a full trailer.
The story unfolds about two years after Bruce Wayne became Batman, during a period when he was still a masked vigilante. The director of the film stressed that in this film, Batman is not Batman yet, and there are people "who, frankly, are afraid of him."
The estimated release date for The Batman is October 1, 2021.
Continuing the Batman theme, we were shown a trailer for a new game called Gotham Knights. But the Dark Knight himself will not be in the game – according to the plot, Bruce Wayne dies in an explosion. Nevertheless, he leaves a video message to his followers, in which he tells a plan for further action.
The trailer features four of Gotham's Knights: Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood, and Nightwing. They will confront the Court of Owls organization, which wants to make a difference in the city.
The release of Gotham Knights is scheduled for 2021 on PC, Xbox One / Series X and PlayStation 4/5 platforms.
Wonder Woman 1984
A new trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 confirms that the movie will still be released initially in theaters. Although for a long time there were rumors that the picture, after several transfers, would have a digital release. The wait, by the way, is not very long – the premiere should take place on October 2, 2020.
The film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen and others. Directed by Patty Jenkins. Written by Jeff Jones and Devil Callaham.
Zack Snyder's Justice League
But the director's cut of Justice League will be released immediately on the HBO Max streaming platform in 2021. These will be four hour-long series, which will reveal in more detail all the members of the Justice League. Let me remind you that Zach Snyder was originally the director of this picture, but for certain reasons he left his position. The film had to be filmed by Joss Whedon, but the result did not satisfy many DC fans.
As a result, Zach Snyder decided to use the footage to create his own director's cut of Justice League. He took into account the wishes of the fans (in particular, paid more attention to Cyborg, Superman, Flash) and is preparing to give a second chance to this picture.
The suicide squad
Director James Gunn introduced all the participants in The Suicide Squad, in particular Idris Elba, who plays Bloodsport, John Cena (Peacemaker), Pete Davidson (Blackguard) and others. Also in a separate video showed some moments from the filming of the picture.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice
Well, after the movie "Suicide Squad", there will be a release and games dedicated to these characters. The adventure shooter will be a sequel to the Batman Arkham franchise. In the trailer, you can see Harley Quinn, Boomerang, Shark King, Deadshot, and the evil Superman.
The exact release date for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice has not yet been specified, it is only noted that it will take place in 2022 on PC, PlaySttaion 5 and Xbox Series X.
Dwayne Johnson joins the DC MCU as Black Adam in the film of the same name. The picture has been in development for a long time, however, a specific release date has not yet been named. According to the comics, Black Adam received superpowers in the 13th century, but because of what he had done, he was deprived of his strength and imprisoned. In the film, we will be told the story of the origin of the supervillain and how he will fight the Justice Society of America.
