The new DC Comics animated direct-to-video movie Justice Society: World War II is available now on Digital and arrives today on Blu-ray/DVD. Be sure to read The Beat‘s interview with the cast and crew here. Today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released a new video interview with Matt Bomer, the voice of Barry a.k.a The Flash.
Golden Globe Award winner Matt Bomer returns to the DC Universe Movies after his debut as the title character in 2013’s Superman Unbound. Beyond winning the Golden Globe and earning an Emmy Award nomination for The Normal Heart, Bomer has been a triple threat with starring turns on television in White Collar, Doom Patrol, The Last Tycoon, The Sinner and American Horror Story (where he also made his directorial debut), in films like Magic Mike and The Magnificent Seven, and on Broadway in The Boys in the Band.
In the three interview bites (tied together) Bomer chats about the “fish out of water” aspects of Flash’s journey, his love of the Flash’s impulsivity, energy, enthusiasm and wittiness, the film’s ability to present an ensemble cast with fully developed characters and specific motivations, and the effects of working alongside the Justice Society of America that will have a lasting influence on Barry Allen’s actions going forward.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the feature-length animated Justice Society: World War II is now available via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital, and available today on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray.
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.
