DC FanDome has released the official lineup of celebrities who will be participating in the virtual convention — and it’s kind of huge.

With just about every convention going virtual this year, the DCEU decided to have its own Comic-Con, announcing that a virtual event called DC FanDome would take place on August 22. The mini-convention will consist of panels, first looks at upcoming DC projects, and all the fandom-related shenanigans one would expect from an event like this (just, virtually this time).

DC FanDome goes live at 1 p.m. ET, and unlike Comic-Con@Home, the content released will only be available to watch for 24 hours. A star-studded lineup was also revealed this week, highlighting some of the projects that the event will focus on. The video announcement shared to Twitter listed more than 300 names associated with the DCEU — and some of them were instantly recognizable.

Check out DC FanDome’s lineup in its entirety here:

Several big-name DC film stars will be in attendance, including The Batman‘s Robert Pattinson, Wonder Woman: 1984‘s Gal Gadot and Pedro Pascal, Shazam‘s Zachary Levi, Suicide Squad‘s Idris Elba and Black Adam‘s Dwayne Johnson. Those projects will obviously be front and center with their main cast members onhand, but several noteworthy filmmakers will also be joining in on the fun.

Zack Znyder made it clear during Comic-Con@Home that he’d be using DC FanDome to boost the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Meanwhile, Suicide Squad 2 director James Gunn, The Batman director Matt Reeves, and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will also be around to tease their upcoming films.

Additionally, it looks certain Arrowverse stars will be there to discuss their series, including The Flash‘s Candice Patton, Stargirl‘s Brec Bassinger, Black Lightning‘s Christopher Priest and Cress Williams, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s Caity Lotz.

All in all, this looks like the event of the summer for anyone who’s been anticipating the upcoming DCEU films — and anyone who’s seriously going to miss the Arrowverse this fall. With any luck, we’ll get some information to hold us over until we can finally dig into all these new DC projects. Fingers crossed.
