DC movies have always had a late-night home thanks to Conan O’Brien
Today is a day millions of DC Comics fans have had circled on their calendars for a long, long time. DC Fandome launches today and with it comes news, previews, and surprises from across the DC Universe.
With no Comic-Con this year, DC and Warner Bros. have stepped up with this unique fan experience. Inside the DC Fandome, fans can find out information about the DC Extended Universe, video games, television shows, and more featuring heroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash.
For many fans, the highlights of this virtual event will be the panels. The cast and creators behind movies like The Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, the Snyder cut of Justice League, and more will be giving sneak peeks, answering fan questions, and delivering surprises all day.
Many of these stars have done something special on Conan. The TBS show is the official late-night home for DC Comics. Conan O’Brien has found himself mixed up in the DC Multiverse and provided some hilarious moments that both late-night and DC fans can appreciate.
DC Fandome will give fans a chance to react to trailers just like Conan O’Brien did
The DCEU started with Man of Steel. High up on fans’ wishlist is a Man of Steel 2 announcement but we’ll have to wait and see on that. If such news does break, you can expect the internet to fill up with reaction videos almost immediately.
Conan O’Brien may have to jump in the mix, too. He was among those who let his opinion be heard when the Man of Steel trailer dropped ahead of the film’s release in 2012.
Can DC Fandome panels top the ones led by Conan O’Brien?
If you’re still putting together your DC Fandome schedule, then you’ll want to pay attention to which films have panels today. Seeing the cast of The Suicide Squad with director James Gunn or Wonder Woman 1984 and director Patty Jenkins will be among the most talked-about moments from the day.
For these panels to really create a buzz, they’ll have to top what we’ve seen when Conan O’Brien was in charge. His interview of the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice cast was a highlight during the movie’s press tour and demonstrated how, despite the movie’s performance, it was made by people who truly loved each other and their characters.
2016’s Suicide Squad was another DC movie that made its way through Conan. Although the next iteration from James Gunn hasn’t been billed as a direct sequel, it will feature Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, and Jai Courtney reprising their roles.
Those actors, along with Will Smith, Jared Leto, and others made quite a splash when they sat down with Conan O’Brien. All reports are that Gunn’s The Suicide Squad had an incredible vibe on set. But it sounds like that’s just part of the deal when making a movie about Task Force X.
Aquaman may be king when it comes to which DCEU movie was the most fun for audiences. It was a surprise hit at the box office, despite coming after the disastrous Justice League and featuring a superhero that has so often been a punchline.
But credit goes to director James Wan and star Jason Momoa. The pair had a clear vision on how to change the public perception of the character and carry on Zack Snyder’s vision of Momoa as Aquaman. The movie’s panel on Conan proved why anything involving Jason Momoa is going to be a party.
