DC FanDome Dominated Saturday With 22 Million Views

DC FanDome

DC FanDome a big success! Back in July Comic-Con International did as best as they could with what little time they were given to put on a virtual convention. They called it Comic-Con@Home. Unfortunately, the post-convention numbers came in and they got nowhere near the number of views or mentions on social media to say that their noble attempt to salvage the feel of Comic-Con was a success. Overall many people felt that if felt flat.

One of the reasons was that WarnerMedia decided that it wasn’t going to bring DC to Comic-Con@Home. Rather they would have their own virtual show in August. They called it DC FanDome and it as going to bring all that we love from DC in one 24-hour event. This of course was later extended into a two-day event. The second day happening on September 12th. This past Saturday, millions around the globe came together to see what DC FanDome had to offer. They showcased all of their upcoming films like Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, Black Adam, The Flash, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and The Batman. So how did it do?


According to The Wrap, DC FanDome had about 22 million global views from over 220 countries and territories. This all happening over the 24 hours via their player, influencer live streams, and user-generated content created by fans watching the event. Also, a whopping 150 million views of trailer content that was featured during the event dominated YouTube and Twitter trends throughout the day. This included 82 markets on YouTube and 53 markets on Twitter. The best part about it was that it was all overwhelmingly positive posts.

Throughout the weekend and even now throughout the week there has been a dominating conversation about the upcoming The Batman film from Matt Reeves. It seems like that first trailer featuring Robert Pattinson really made an impact. Despite the fact that it was made only using scenes that represented 25% of filming.


This was a very smart move from DC and WarnerMedia. It has allowed the focus to be strictly on them for a few days. I am curious as to what the numbers for Comic-Con@Home would have been had DC taken all these panels to that virtual convention last month. Problem is that more than likely a lot that they showcased on Saturday may have not been ready. Overall it was a fantastic virtual experience. For many parts throughout the day had us on the edge of our seats filled with excitement.

The second day of DC FanDome takes place on September 12th, 2020.
