“Wonder Woman 1984” and “The Flash” will kick off the film programming portion of DC FanDome, Warner Bros.’ virtual Comic-Con alternative, the company revealed Friday with the release of the full schedule of events.

Announced in June, the inaugural installment of WB’s online fan festival — which runs for 24 straight hours starting at 10:00 AM Pacific on Saturday Aug. 22. — celebrates all of the upcoming film, television, comics and other projects based on the iconic publisher’s characters and concepts.

In addition to closer looks at “Wonder Woman 1984” and the multiverse-spanning, Michael Keaton-costarring “The Flash,” fans who tune in will also get to find out more about WB outings like James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad,” James Wan’s “Aquaman” sequel, and Matt Reeves “The Batman,” a must-see as Reeves joins host Aisha Tyler to talk it up and treat fans to some new footage. Which makes sense, as they’ve got 7 weeks in the can with another 11 weeks of production to go (personally we’re hoping to see some of Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon).

Plus, director Zack Snyder will give fans a look at his upcoming “Snyder cut” of “Justice League in a panel featuring several special guests — our money is on Henry Cavill — while Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is holding a Q&A with fans to talk about his upcoming New Line-produced “Black Adam,” and Zachary Levi will be talking about the upcoming sequel to the delightful cult hit “Shazam!”

And just in case you need a primer on just what that whole “multiverse” concept is all about, DC Comics chief creative officer (and comics legend in his own right) Jim Lee is heading up “Multiverse 101” in between the “WW84” and “The Flash” panels. He’ll be joined by Warner Bros. Pictures President of DC-Based Film Production Walter Hamada, and Berlanti Productions founder/DCTV mega-producer Greg Berlanti.

DC FanDome will be accessible around the world for 24 hours at the appropriately named website DCFanDome.com. All of this content will be virtually housed in six different, fully programmed areas inside the virtual DC FanDome: “Hall of Heroes” (Main Hall), DC WatchVerse, DC YouVerse, DC KidsVerse, DC InsiderVerse and DC FunVerse.

Content will be available in 10 languages including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazil Portuguese, Korean, Japanese and Chinese. Additionally, content programmed from specific countries will be in their native language.

The programming contains over 100 hours of unique content across the six areas you can visit during the event; featuring five Verses and the Hall of Heroes.
