The upcoming DC Fandom event will take place on the weekend of August 22.

The virtual event will feature a host of different fan experiences, including panels, viewings, art exhibitions and family-friendly activities.

But perhaps most intriguing of all are the multiple reveals that will take place over the course of the weekend.

This includes DC film announcements, TV show reveals and exclusive previews of new comic books.

It also includes some kind of announcement by Warner Bros Games. This almost certainly means we’ll get a first look at the new Batman game rumoured to be in development at Rocksteady

Imagine all the Super Heroes and Super-Villains you’ve ever loved finally coming together in one place to celebrate DC’s past, present and future,” reads the event description.

“Accessible for 24 hours at DCFanDome.com, the global event will immerse fans into the DC Multiverse, with new announcements from WB Games, Film and TV, and comics, as well as an unprecedented opportunity to hear from the casts and creators behind your favorite feature films and TV series.”

The list of franchises appearing at the event is mind-blowing, featuring everything from The Flash and Harley Quinn, to Supergirl and Watchmen.

Needless to say, the list also includes Batman and The Suicide Squad. Indeed, according to a new report on Gamingbolt, Rocksteady’s rumoured new Batman game will actually focus on The Suicide Squad.

A Suicide Squad game was previously in the works at Warner Montreal, but was later cancelled. 

Previous rumours suggest the new Batman game will be called Arkham Legacy, although conflicting reports hint at an all-encompassing DC game featuring characters spanning multiple franchises.

Other rumours suggest the Batman game will revolve around the Court of Owls story arc, and will feature numerous playable characters.

Roger Craig Smith, who played Batman in Arkham Origins, hinted at the release of a new Batman game last year.

The Arkham Origins voice actor previously tweeted: “Super bummed to not be working on anything that I can’t tweet about right now because I can’t violate an NDA for something that I assure you does not exist.

“And isn’t a video game.”

His publicist Gary Miereanu would later reply: “Your publicist thanks you, and promises we’ll let the cat out of the bag reasonably soon.”

Fans will find out for certain when the new DC game is revealed at the event on August 22.
