Ahoy Captain Cats here and we just finished watching the DC FanDome and here are some of the big highlights from it.
DC FanDome did deliver on this part when it came to films, we had trailers for Wonder Woman 1984, first looks at the Snyder Cut, which I wasn’t impressed at all, The Suicide Squad, Black Adam, and The Batman, looks great but, director Matt Reeves didn’t bring anything new to the character. To be honest it seems like The Batman is piggybacking Frank Miller, David Mazzucchelli and Richmond Lewis classic “Batman: Year One” story. Overall DC did well in this department. All films will have a 2021 release date.
Milestone Comics is back and I can’t wait! Starting this September a lot of Milestone Comics classic issues will be back via digital format and new issues won’t come out till February 2021.
While Titans did have some news like a season 3 and having the like of Red Hood, Barbara Gordon, and Scarecrow to be shown in the upcoming season, it was Neil Gaiman’s Sandman that got all the attention. While production for the series is still an issue due to COVID-19 and when the series will start, this gave Gaiman and team more time to mix it up a bit with character gender and such, and Gaiman himself said it was a liberating experience.
We are having not one, but TWO games that are completely different, but ended up almost being the same, what are the odds of that? First is Gotham Knights, and it looks beautiful. From the trailer and gameplay, it looks like Batman Arkham games series meets Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series and I’m fine with that. The other game was Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, and it has this Left4Dead meets Team Fortess2 and add a dash of Cyberpunk 2077 and this is what you get. While both games are great and have a 2021 and 2022 release date, it begs the question, will they be next-gen games, current-gen games, or both?
Overall DC FanDome was good, some parts were better then others and other parts were better then what should have been the main stars, overall it gets a 7 out of 10.
