Warner Bros. Television Group and DC Entertainment are heading to Washington D.C. this Martin Luther King Jr. weekend for the ultimate superhero fan event of the year!
The event, aptly named “DC in D.C.”, is set to take place Friday, January 12, and Saturday, January 13, 2018, at the Newseum. The event intends to explore current issues in the United States—pop culture, entertainment, and enlightenment—all through the lens of superhero fictions. Comic book artists and writers will join various guests from politics, government service, entertainment, business, academia, and more in a series of panel discussions.
“DC in D.C.” will also showcase the world premiere of The CW’s upcoming DCTV series Black Lightning, based on the first black DC superhero with his own standalone comic title; panel discussions with stars and producers from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and other DC-brand shows; prominent DC Comics writers and artists; and a premiere screening of the highly anticipated DC animated film Batman: Gotham By Gaslight among other exclusives.
