The LEGO Batman Movie might have been the first brick-based DC movie on the big screen, but the LEGO DC Super Heroes have had a huge presence in Warner Bros.' animated home movies for years.
After several Batman and Justice League-based films, the Flash is finally getting the spotlight in LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash. Check out the trailer for the new movie above.
While most of the major players like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg are all present and accounted for, but the movie also includes new characters like Firestorm, the Atom, Zatanna, and Dr. Fate.
In the film, the Flash suffers from a series of unfortunate events that also plague his teammates in the League, drawing their ire, and ultimately resulting in his dismissal from the super team.
Thought it seemed like a case of bad luck, it's all down to the machinations of Reverse-Flash, who has manipulated the Speed Force and gone back in time to mess with his nemesis.
Read the synopsis below for more information:
In LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash, Reverse-Flash manipulates the Speed Force to put The Flash into a time loop that forces him to relive the same day over and over again – with progressively disastrous results, including losing his powers and being fired by the Justice League. The Flash must find a way to restore time to its original path and finally apprehend his worst enemy before all is lost for The Flash … and the world!
Along the route, The Flash encounters numerous new characters being introduced to the popular DC Super Heroes series, including The Atom; B’dg, a squirrel-esque Green Lantern; a pair of legendary super pets in Ace the Bat-Hound and Krypto the Super-Dog, Batman and Superman’s faithful canine pals; as well as Aquaman’s trusted seahorse, Storm.
LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash also features an original song, “It’s Magic,” written by Tim Kelly and Jeremy Adams, and performed with enthusiastic zest by the trio of The Flash (voiced by James Arnold Taylor), Zatanna (Kate Micucci) and Doctor Fate (Kevin Michael Richardson).
The cast of LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash features some of the top voiceover artists in the industry, led by the aforementioned Taylor, Micucci and Richardson, along with Troy Baker (Batman), Nolan North (Superman, Killer Croc), Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman, Lois Lane), Dwight Schultz (Reverse-Flash), Eric Bauza (The Atom, B’dg, Jimmy Olsen), Tom Kenny (Plastic Man, The Penguin), Phil LaMarr (Firestorm), Khary Payton (Cyborg), Vanessa Marshall (Poison Ivy), Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Boomerang, Aquaman), Jason Spisak (The Joker) and Audrey Wasilewski (Mayor).
