DC FanDome generated a lot of buzz and over the past few months (just take a look at Conskipper’s recent news archive!) leading up to the event, and according to Warner Bros., the online convention also garnered 22 million views across 220 countries. In addition, all of the trailers released during the event have pulled in over 150 million views since Saturday’s event.
DC FanDome was broadcast in nine languages (English, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, French, German and Italian) during the course of the 24 hour event (including replays of the initial presentations).
TV group president and chief marketing officer Lisa Gregorian told Variety that the success of FanDome will not preclude DC from attending live conventions in the future, as “There’s a place for both. I don’t think one negates the other. I just think that under the circumstances that we were in we were able to come up with a solution for how to stay connected with our fans.”
Although no plans have been announced as of yet. the unmitigated success of DC FanDome will certainly breed a sequel (and perhaps other comic or media companies will follow DC into the world of online conventions).
