Unlike last year, the full DC FanDome schedule hasn’t been revealed and, as time ticks down towards Saturday, isn’t likely to drop into our laps ahead of the big day.

However, DC has revealed the full line-up of actors, directors, and other creatives who will be at DC FanDome. You can watch the video further down the page for the full list – seriously, it’s nearly 100+ names – but here are some of the highlights:

  • The Batman: actors Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz will be there alongside director Matt Reeves. A trailer has officially been confirmed by DC, so keep your eyes peeled.
  • A Black Adam blowout is likely judging by the initial FanDome trailer. Dwayne Johnson will be joined by co-stars Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Quintessa Swindwell, and Pierce Brosnan.
  • Shazam: Fury of the Gods, The Flash, and Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom will also have a presence at the event.
  • Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is confirmed to appear – and might confirm Wonder Woman 3. Fingers crossed.
  • The newest member of DC’s lineup, Blue Beetle, is also set to make its mark. Actor Xolo Maridueña will be appear alongside the movie’s director Angel Manuel Soto and writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer.
  • J.J. Abrams is also showing up at DC FanDome. Given that he has his fingers in many pies – including a new Superman movie and Justice League Dark – be sure to listen to whatever he has to say.
  • On the games side of things, Rocksteady’s Kill the Justice League will be previewed at FanDome, as will Gotham Knights, which sees the Bat-Family teaming up and kicking ass in Gotham after Batman’s supposed death. There’s even been some suggestion Injustice 3 will be announced. NetherRealm’s Ed Boon is another set to be at FanDome. What could he be cooking up?
  • Elsewhere, a series of comic creatives are also on the docket: Jim Lee, Scott Snyder, Todd McFarlane and John Ridley have been confirmed, among other artists and writers.
