The Flash gets standalone LEGO DC Super Heroes movie - with a little help from his super friends

The world of LEGO superhero movies is getting bigger, as The Flash is getting his own film. Of course, he won't be alone in this animated cinematic adventure, but the Scarlet Speedster is finally front and center.

Judging from the first trailer below, this looks like The Flash's own personal Groundhog Day. But other popular Justice League characters appear, too, including Batman (played by Troy Baker, who has voiced the Caped Crusader in several other LEGO DC movies), Superman (Nolan North, another regular), Wonder Woman (played by newcomer Grey Griffin), Cyborg (Khary Payton, The Walking Dead), Firestorm (Phil LaMarr, Futurama), Plastic Man (Tom Kenny, SpongeBob SquarePants), the Atom (Eric Bauza, The Adventures of Puss in Boots), and the two most adorable Justice Leaguers, Ace and Krypto (Batman and Superman's faithful canine companions).

 

Here's the official synopsis:

Reverse-Flash manipulates the Speed Force to put The Flash into a time loop that forces him to relive the same day over and over again – with progressively disastrous results, including losing his powers and being fired by the Justice League. The Flash must find a way to restore time to its original path and finally apprehend his worst enemy before all is lost for The Flash … and the world!

This may be your only opportunity to see a Flash feature film, at least for a little while. Flashpoint, the DCEU's live-action Flash movie starring Ezra Miller, is currently without a director or a specific release date, other than the year 2020.

This animated Flash is voiced by James Arnold Taylor (Star Wars: Clone Wars), and he even performs an original song, "It's Magic," with Zatanna (played by Kate Micucci, The Big Bang Theory) and Doctor Fate (Kevin Michael Richardson, Family Guy).

LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Flash is directed by Ethan Spaulding (Batman: Assault on Arkham) and is written by Warner Bros. vets Jim Krieg and Jeremy Adams. Catch it (if you can) on digital Feb. 13, 2018, and Blu-ray March 13.
