DC FanDome Kicks Off Today August 22 @ 10am PT – Share Your Schedule – What are you looking forward to seeing?

DC FanDome is advertising buying DC movies at special pricing during the event and a little bit beyond … catch the fun at DCFanDome.com on Saturday August 22, 2020

It’s Saturday, August 22, and DC FanDome time starting at 10am PT … or possibly now by the time you read this. I’m going to be checking this virtual event out at least part of today.

(The other part? We’re going back to the movie theater to watch some new movies! YAY!)

Have seen some ads for $5 digital deals on buying DC movies circulating through Roku and some publications, see the quote below, are doing detailed dives on the merchandising offerings.

Highlights include the best of Wonder Woman 1984 lifestyle products, a LEGO shop, EleVen by Venus Williams x Wonder Woman exclusives, and DRAWN: Black DC Super Heroes with Ken Lashley and Denys Cowan art. Superhero fans won’t want to miss this opportunity to own merch from around the world to create or expand their personal DC collection. (Quantities are limited and may sell out fast — some are only for sale for the first 24 hours).

Official DC FanDome Store Launching Tomorrow Through September – ComingSoon.net

Don’t think I’ll be buying any Wonder Woman gold shoes for $100 or going in on the LEGO Batman VISA card (one credit card for me, with a small credit limit, suits me just fine), but maybe there are some other deals that will interest. I’ll check it out.

Honestly, I’m much more interested in the panels. The most interesting panel I looked forward to, though, has been pushed back to next month (see: DC FanDome Splits and Offers Second Day on September 12, Harley Quinn Season 3 News Likely To Be Revealed?).

Still, I’m ready for WW1984. The hype for that movie has been going on far too long (see: FIRST LOOK: Wonder Woman 1984 – First Official Trailer Released – Livestream Notes and Reaction — that was December?!). Not Patty Jenkins fault the movie didn’t get out on time, but I’m past ready to see the sequel. The fact that it’s set in the 80s, my high school years, makes me even more excited. You?

As for shopping? Meh. I’m not a big merch guy. Sure, if I go see a concert I spring for the way overpriced concert T, and I usually want to buy something to remember an event for, but a virtual event? It’s not the same as saying “I was there” — and honestly buying or collecting crap that just gathers dust and becomes something to throw away or sell down the road? Not my idea of money well spent.

That said, for others who want to show off their DC pride, it’s all good. We must question the unfortunate timing of this event shortly following the layoffs and other negativity swirling around WarnerMedia lately (see: Majority of DC Universe staff have been laid off by WarnerMedia, report says)

Buying any of the DC movies for $5? Maybe Wonder Woman would interest me at that price. We have it on HBO Max right now, so owning it to rewatch isn’t really that compelling. Also, I’m guessing down the road there will be some sort of bundle pack for WW1984 and WW at a special price. We just don’t buy that many movies any more.

DC FanDome Splits and Offers Second Day on September 12, Harley Quinn Season 3 News Likely To Be Revealed?

An episode of Harley Quinn showing with ex-boyfriend, the manically twisted abusive Joker

This Saturday, August 22, the virtual event DC FanDome will be on (see: Jim Lee on DC Universe: “It’s definitely not going away”).

One of those panels, unfortunately, has been delayed to a second DC FanDome event on September 12. There is speculation this is when we’ll find out of if the awesome adult animated show will be greenlit for a third season, but nothing has been confirmed.

If fans are going to get that information, it’ll be during the panel, now marked for Sept. 12 and 13 at 12 p.m. CST. The guests scheduled to speak on that panel include Kaley Cuoco (Harley), Lake Bell (Poison Ivy), Ron Funches (King Shark), Matt Oberg (Kite Man) and Alan Tudyk (Joker and Clayface) along with executive producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Dean Lorey and supervising producer Jennifer Coyle. 

It Seems Like ‘Harley Quinn’ Fans Have To Wait Longer for Season 3 News; DC FanDome Schedule Changed

As a huge fan of this adult animated show — I put it up there with the best ever created — a season 3 must happen. I think it’s probably something like a 95% certainty that season 3 and probably 4 will both be greenlit. I don’t know and haven’t read anything official, that’s pure speculation on my part, but just on buzz, reviews, the show quality, the fact that the creators want to do more seasons and the fact that it covers a central character that isn’t a man, in 2020 that seems to cover it all.

But even if we throw out all the reasons that point to a renewal, the most important thing is there is more story to tell. What will happen to Harley and Ivy? We need to know where these characters are going, what they will do in Gotham city and beyond.

So, my guess — again, only that — is September 12 or perhaps leaked sooner than that, we’ll find out new seasons will be coming. I don’t know if they can turn around an animated series in a year, but I’ve read the Zoom meeting for shows under production are all the rage during the pandemic, so something tells me as soon as WarnerMedia/DC says: “go!” that the creative team will go full throttle on more seasons.

Again, when might we see season 3? Late 2021, early to mid 2022, is an educated guess. They released Season 1 in 2019 and Season 2 in 2020. It couldn’t have come at a better time with theaters going down.

Or maybe we learn nothing at FanDome #2 September 12. That would be more newsworthy. September is when DC Universe is ending their rewards program, so something tells me we find the fate of DC Universe at Fandome #1, there is the negative news cycle, then follow up with FanDome #2 where we receive positive news and buzz.

Perhaps too much speculation here, but time will tell how close to the mark it is. What do you think? Do you want to see Season 3 of Harley Quinn? Are you attending the DC FanDome? Interested/not?
