The new Warner Brothers Animation and D.C. comics film, Justice Society: World War II featured a very particular set of superheroes. Barry Allen’s version of The Flash, along with the original, Jay Gerrick’s version, Aquaman, Black Canary, Hawkman and Wonder Woman.
WonderCon@Home gave the fans a treat and hosted a panel with the writers, visual artists, voice actors and director, to tie the whole movie together.
Throughout the panel, the voice actors were separated from the production side of the film to give their different perspectives, but one thing that both sides made evidently clear was the fact that this film was based on pairing different feelings, emotions and depth.
Both of the writers, Meghan Fitzmartin and Jeremy Adams, along with Jeff Wamester (director) and Butch Lukic (supervising producer), all gave their opinion on how the gravity of the film is what drove them. Making sure that it was not just about the heroes, but also about the relationships they maintained with others and how one action could have a ripple effect.
Jeff Wamester, making his director debut, stated in the interview that, “It’s difficult when you bring in one too many and they each don’t get a story but with this one, they each have somewhere that they go and we weave all those stories together into this movie.”
When the actors entered into the panel, they all mentioned how they did not record any of their scenes with a partner or even in a group, so it was imperative for them to execute their lines to the best of their abilities.
They also made sure that they dug deep and did their research on the golden era of comics to truly understand what it means to be the originals, and how to bring a modern flare on screen as well, while staying relevant to the times.
Be sure to check out the film when it releases on Home Entertainment on Digital starting April 27, 2021, and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray on May 11, 2021.
