Batwoman, Black Lightning Stars Urge Global Cosplayers to #DCSuitUp

When it comes to convention coverage season, we've gotten used to there being a bit of a "downtime" between San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) and New York Comic Con (NYCC)- and usually a much-needed one. This year, not so much? Social distancing and statewide COVID-19 health and safety regulations forced SDCC to be done from home this year. As a result, there were some "side cons" taking place before or during SDCC's Comic-Con@Home (like Skybound Xpo and Adult Swim Con)- but the biggest change comes in less than two weeks with DC FanDome. DC FanDome is WarnerMedia's virtual global event where fans can learn about what's ahead for television, film, and video games. Attendees will be able to hear from the casts and creators from a number of series (including those yet to be announced), including Batwoman, Black Lightning, DC Super Hero Girls, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, DC's Stargirl, Doom Patrol, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Lucifer, Pennyworth, Supergirl, Superman & Lois, Teen Titans GO!, Titans, Watchmen, Young Justice: Outsiders, and more.

To get fans psyched for the event, WarnerMedia has asked Batwoman star Javicia Leslie to gather her Batwoman-cosplaying friends from around the world to develop a global defense for Gotham City (even Batwoman could use some help every now and then) while Black Lightning star Cress Williams is giving his global pals a chance to show off some of their own power in the clips below:
