Justice Society: World War II panel set for WonderCon@Home 2021

Justice Society: World War II

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings an advance look at its highly-anticipated next entry in the DC Universe Movies canon – Justice Society: World War II – to Wonder@Home with a star-studded panel discussion on Saturday, March 27 at 11:00am PT.

To view the Justice Society: World War II panel, go to https://youtu.be/7Es8ztlK5Bw on WonderCon’s YouTube channel. This link will NOT be live until March 27 at 11:00am PT.

The 50-minute panel will include actors, filmmakers and assorted clips and images from the all-new, feature-length animated movie. Justice Society: World War II arrives on Digital starting April 27, 2021, and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray on May 11, 2021.

Headlining the panel discussion are actors Stana Katic as Wonder Woman, Matt Bomer as Barry Allen/The Flash, Elysia Rotaru as Black Canary, Omid Abtahi as Hawkman, Chris Diamantopoulos as Steve Trevor, Armen Taylor as Jay Garrick/The Flash,  Liam McIntyre as Aquaman, and Geoff Arend as Charles Halstead/Advisor alongside director Jeff Wamester, co-screenwriters Meghan Fitzmartin and Jeremy Adams, and supervising producer Butch Lukic. Publicist Gary Miereanu moderates the festivities.

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.

San Diego Comic-Con 2021 Goes Virtual With November In-Person Event

San Diego Comic-Con at home

With the COVID pandemic still raging and the future uncertain Comic-Con International has announced that San Diego Comic-Con 2021 will be going virtual. The convention organizers had already announced that Wonder Con, which was to take place in March, would be doing the same.

San Diego Comic-Con 2021 will again be virtual and free, like it was in 2020. The virtual event will span three days, July 23 to 25. They are limiting it to three days due to “limited financial resources”.

But, there’s a chance we’ll also get the bonus of an in-person event. San Diego Comic-Con is planning a three-day in-person convention in November. Specific details, attendance capacity, badge cost, etc., will be coming down the road.

For those with badges for 2021, those will be transfered to 2022 unless a refund is equested. The convention is working on possibly rolling things over to November’s event instead.

With two conventions cancelled and mention of it in their newsletter, there’s concern about the convention’s financial stability. It’s a concern being echoed about many conventions.

In their 2019 990 report, the convention had about $27.7 million in expenses for the year. It’s unknown what those expenses are now due to the pandemic with no in-person convention and instead 2020 being virtual. It’s also unknown what revenue they might have gained from that convention as well.

You can read their full statement below as well as a link where you can get more information if you’re a current badge holder.
