At the centre of the FanDome is the Hall of Heroes. Here, fans can watch panels and experience reveals of films, TV and games. The Hall of Heroes will be available in Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish. The Hall of Heroes is the gateway to the multiverse and fans will be able to access other areas from there.

DC and WB describe the other parts of the multiverse as follows;

It’s long been rumoured that WB Montreal, developer of Batman: Arkham Origins is working on a new Batman game and Rocksteady, developer of the other Batman: Arkham titles has been rumoured to be working on a Superman game.

Could either, or both of these games be announced at DC FanDome? Let’s hope so.
