Justice Society: World War II Release Date Revealed

Justice Society: World War II, the first feature-length animated film to center on the exploits of DC's first super-team, will be available digitally on April 27, 2021, and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray on May 11, 2021, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment revealed today. The official box art is also now available, along with a rundown of some of the features to expect on the physical media release of the film. The movie centers on The Flash (like, the one who's already been in a bunch of movies, Barry Allen) traveling back in time to team up with his predecessor, Jay Garrick, and the Justice Society.

They also released an official synopsis for the upcoming Kamandi DC Showcase short. The character has appeared on TV before, palling around with Batman in Batman: The Brave and the Bold and the like, but this short will not just be a visit to the world of The Great Disaster, but will give fans a glimpse at the world and supporting cast of Kamandi as well.

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.

Stana Katic (Castle) and Matt Bomer (Doom Patrol, White Collar), who made their DC Universe Movies debuts as Lois Lane and Superman in the 2013 film Superman: Unbound, return to the popular animated film series in the lead roles of Wonder Woman and The Flash for Justice Society: World War II. The cast includes Geoffrey Arend (Batman: Hush) as Charles Halstead/Advisor, Armen Taylor (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind) as Jay Garrick, Elysia Rotaru (Arrow) as Black Canary, Liam McIntyre (The Flash, Spartacus) as Aquaman, Omid Abtahi (American Gods, The Mandalorian) as Hawkman, Matthew Mercer (Critical Role) as Hourman, Keith Ferguson (Overwatch) as Dr. Fate, Darin De Paul (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge) as Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Ashleigh LaThrop (The Handmaid's Tale) as Iris West, and Chris Diamantopoulos (the voice of Mickey Mouse) as Steve Trevor.

Jeff Wamester (Guardians of the Galaxy TV series) directs Justice Society: World War II from a screenplay by Meghan Fitzmartin (Supernatural, DC Super Hero Girls) and Jeremy Adams (Supernatural, Batman: Soul Of The Dragon).
