Stana Katic is no stranger to comic book properties or the DC Universe. She first came to our attention as the scene-stealing junior police officer Morgenstern in Frank Miller‘s The Spirit. She began her long association with the DC Multiverse by voicing Talia Al Ghul in the 2011 video game Batman: Arkham City and voiced Lois Lane in 2013’s Superman Unbound. But with the recently released Justice Society: World War II, Katic takes on playing Wonder Woman, a role she talks about with great affection in the following video.
The film sees her Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice Society encountering future Flash Barry Allen (Matt Bomer) just as their mission in Europe hits a critical phase. Armen Taylor, Omid Abtahi, Matthew Mercer and more also lend their voices to the heroes of the Golden Age.
Although the film is available now on digital platforms, a disc release is planed for next Tuesday, May 11th. It comes with some interesting special features like the following:
DC Showcase – Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth! – Jack Kirby’s beloved DC comic creation features the last civilized teenage boy on a post-apocalyptic Earth ruled by talking animals. In this short, Kamandi and his friends Prince Tuftan of the Tiger Kingdom and humanoid mutant Ben Boxer are kidnapped by a gorilla cult dedicated to finding the reincarnation of their god, The Mighty One. Golgan, the cult’s leader, puts Kamandi’s team through a series of deadly tests to find if any of them know the secret of … The Mighty One.
Adventures in Storytelling: Justice Society: World War II – The film’s creative minds chat about the methods used to produce the touchstone sequences in Justice Society: World War II.
A Sneak Peek at the next DC Universe Movie – An advance look at the next animated film in the popular DC Universe Movies collection, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One.
Look Back – Justice League vs. Teen Titans – A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Justice League vs. Teen Titans, a 2016 thriller that follows Damian Wayne’s induction into the Teen Titans. Complicating his training is the growing presence of Raven’s satanic, world-conquering father Trigon, whose escape plan from his inter-dimensional prison includes spreading his demonic forces across the globe, infiltrating the minds and bodies of the Justice League to do his bidding. To save the universe and prevent a literal hell on Earth, the Teen Titans must rescue – or defeat – the Justice League, and intern Trigon for all eternity.
Look Back – Wonder Woman: Bloodlines – An intriguing glance into the production behind 2019’s Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, which finds Amazon Princess Diana helping a troubled young girl enlisted by a deadly organization known as Villainy, Inc., whose criminal members have their sights set on invading Themyscira. The expansive adventure is packed with brutal battles, mysterious mythology, and endless wonder!

As we’ve said before, the Kamandi short is worth the price of admission alone. Meanwhile, the inclusion of the two-part Justice League episode — which features a different take on Justice Society: World War II‘s premise — only seems like a natural supplement to include.
