    ‘Justice Society: World War II’ Trailer

    Check out the first official trailer for DC’s Justice Society: World War II! Matt sounds like a perfect Flash, I’m excited for this. Along with the trailer, they also released the official synopsis.

    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. This is the first film in the DC Universe Movies series — of which this film will be No. 42 over the past 14 years — to feature the Justice Society. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Justice Society: World War II will be available on Digital and home entertainment later in 2021.

    His name is Barry Allen and he’s the fastest man alive. Matt is set to voice The Flash in the upcoming animated movie, Justice Society: World War II! The lead cast was announced recently, which also includes Stana Katic as Wonder Woman. Looking forward to this!

    HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The upcoming Justice Society: World War II will feature an ensemble voice cast led by Stana Katic as Wonder Woman and Matt Bomer as The Flash. It is the first of the universe’s 42 films to star the team of heroes known as the Justice Society, which in the comics first appeared during the second World War. Katic and Bomer first worked in the DC Universe Movies series together in 2013’s Superman: Unbound.

    The cast for Justice Society: World War II includes Elysia Rotaru as Black Canary, Chris Diamantopoulos as Steve Trevor, Omid Abtahi as Hawkman, Matthew Mercer as Hourman, Armen Taylor as Jay Garrick, Liam McIntyre as Aquaman, Ashleigh LaThrop as Iris West, Geoffrey Arend as Charles Halstead/Advisor, Keith Ferguson as Dr. Fate and Darin De Paul as Roosevelt.

    Matt Bomer for Gio Journal

    Two weeks ago, Matt shared on his Instagram a sneak peek on a new photoshoot with John Russo. Fast forward to today, the shoot is out and it’s gorgeous as expected! I’m so glad we still got to be blessed with a new photoshoot this year. Check out outtakes in our gallery, and the interview below!

    Q: With Gay themed movies few are far between how did you initially hear about this project?
    A: Ryan Murphy reached out to me back in 2017 and told me about the project and asked if I would be a part of a reading of the play in New York.  I had no knowledge of the play prior to the reading, so I suppose I was able to come to it without any preconceived notions.  

    Q: When you were approached with this project did you have any doubts about taking this role?
    A: I loved the creative team from the start, many of whom were friends of many years, but it took me a while to warm up to the piece. I thought it was wickedly funny from the first read through.  Once I understood what the world was like for these men in 1968, months before Stonewall, and the oppression and ‘other-ness’ they were suffering from society, all of their behavior made sense to me. I thought it was amazing that Mart had captured so many different gay men in one piece- you don’t see that even in 2020.  I also realized how much of my career I owe to Mart Crowley and the original cast, who were so courageous in telling this story in 1968, when it was unprecedented to do so. It was important for me to be a part of this particular cast 50 years later. 

    Q: When you heard the cast was going to be mainly, if not all, gay men, what was your reaction?
    A: I didn’t know what to expect, because, sadly, it was so foreign to me to be in this kind of work environment. I knew all of them were either my friends or peers whom I respected, so I was excited to get to collaborate with them.  What I love about this particular group of men is that no one approached the film or play as if it were ‘important’, we all just rolled up our sleeves and got to work on the play like you would with any ensemble.  But there was a familiarity, a shared language and life experience, that I really feel informed the work in a great way, and ultimately made me more comfortable in my own skin.  

    Q: Two very successful gay themed films, “Brokeback Mountain” and “Call me by your name” had straight men playing gay roles. Although Hollywood has come a long way in creating visibility for gay characters. The one thing it lacks is actually casting Gay men to play Gay roles.
    A: I started working in the theater at 17. Everyone played everything.  But I understand the importance of people all across the LGBTQ spectrum having access and opportunity to get to play these roles. If you can’t get in the room, you can’t get the part. So, everyone needs the opportunity, and then let them cast the person they feel is best for the role.  

    Q: The film takes place in NYC in 1968, You got a taste of what gay life was in that time versus current day.  What do you think are the main differences in the two eras?  Gay life then versus now.
    A: It was massively different for these men.  The societal oppression was immense- that’s why you had the explosion of Stonewall. For starters, homosexuality was considered a mental illness until 1973.  Dancing with a same sex partner in public could land you in jail.  Names were written in the newspaper to shame people. The government and the military wouldn’t hire openly LGBTQ people. So many of the rights we have today are because of the brave souls who stood up during this time, and of course through the subsequent decades as well.  That’s why I wanted to be a part of this: I don’t believe we’d be able to do this film in 2020 with an all openly gay cast if it weren’t for Mart having the courage to tell this story in 1968, and everything that transpired after.

    ‘Doom Patrol’ Renewed for Season 3 on HBO Max

    Our favorite gang is officially coming back! Doom Patrol will be returning for a third season, this time exclusively to HBO Max. New episodes will no longer be available on the streaming service where it originally launched, DC Universe.

    THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The drama, starring Brendan Fraser, Matt Bomer, April Bowlby and Diane Guerrero, had a shared run on both HBO Max and DC Universe with its second season. The expansion to the larger platform helped further solidify the show as a breakout for Warner Bros. TV, which produces the series.

    “On behalf of the wonderful cast, writers and crew, we are thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to return to Doom Manor. And we are especially thankful for our partners at Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, DC Universe and, of course, HBO Max,” showrunner Jeremy Carver said in a statement. The news was formally announced Saturday during the second day of WBTV’s virtual DC FanDome event.

    That Doom Patrol would become exclusive to HBO Max comes as little surprise as scripted originals have increasingly been moved off of DC Universe. “The original content that is on DCU is migrating to HBO Max. Truthfully, that’s the best platform for that content,” DC’s Jim Lee told THR last month. “The amount of content you get, not just DC, but generally from WarnerMedia, is huge and it’s the best value proposition. … We feel that is the place for that.”

    Doom Patrol came to HBO Max with an already deep and passionate fan base and has risen to the top as one of the most-watched Max originals on the platform,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max. “The series sits well in our portfolio and we are glad to greenlight a third season to continue this distinctive style of storytelling that resonates so well with critics and fans alike.”
