    Box cover:

    The Flash speeds into the middle of an epic battle between
    Golden Age DC Super Heroes and Nazis in Justice Society: World
    War II. The movie 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.

    this time-skipping World War II thriller.

    Of course it'll be all about the Nazis and nothing about the JAPS because that would be "racist."
