Justice Society: World War II is the latest entry from Warner Bros. Entertainment featuring a squadron of heroes that has never gotten its shine in the DC Animated Universe. Even with the odd inclusion of Barry Allen’s Flash.
Here’s the latest trailer:
Justice Society: World War II finds modern-day Barry Allen – prior to the formation of the Justice League – discovering he can run even faster than he imagined, and that milestone results in his first encounter with the Speed Force.
The Flash is promptly launched into the midst of a raging battle – primarily between Nazis and a team of Golden Age DC Super Heroes known as The Justice Society of America. Led by Wonder Woman, the group includes Hourman, Black Canary, Hawkman, Steve Trevor and the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. The Flash quickly volunteers to assist his fellow heroes in tipping the scales of war in their favor, while the team tries to figure out how to send him home. But it won’t be easy as complications and emotions run deep in this time-skipping World War II thriller.
I’m hoping we see a few more of the Justice Society members and that Steve Trevor’s role isn’t too prominent as they’ve already explored that dynamic in all of the previous Wonder Woman live action and animated movies.
