Yes, it’s WonderCon@home again for 2021’s version of the con. But even so, there’s going to be some cool stuff to see. Case in point, Justice Society.
If you haven’t been paying attention to the next installment of Warner Bros excellent DC Comics animated film slate hits on May the 11th, and is all about the Justice Society. Long time DC fans will know that superhero team well, but just in case you don’t, they’re essentially the early 20th century version of the League.
The Society was all but worked out of DC continuity with the New52 era, but that’s changing. Infinite Frontier is bringing them back to the fore, as the comic book event wipes clean all of the effects of previous DC continuity-reshuffles with the “Crisis” tag.
But again, it’s not just comics that are celebrating the Society again. Here’s a look at the animated film in action:
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and WBHE, the all-new animated adventure 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.Warner Bros
