Other cast members include: Kenichi Suzumura, Rica Matsumoto, Daisuke Namikawa, Wataru Takagi, Kazuya Nakai, Mitsuo Iwata, Aya Uchida, Inuko Inuyama, Tomoko Kaneda, and Akio Ohtsuka.

FROGMAN is credited as the director, scriptwriter, and a voice actor for the film. GONZO and Shirogumi are assisting DLE with the animation. DLE Inc. outlines the film's story:

Joker has come to Japan to steal the Eagle Talon Society's secret weapons in his continued scheme for pure chaos. However, the Justice League is on his trail, but there's something off with Batman. Now, it's up to Eagle Talon to go find out what's wrong with Batman, and that means going back in time to Bruce Wayne's most traumatic experience, the murder of his parents. If that wasn't enough to worry about, the Eagle Talon Society also have to keep their eyes on their production budget, especially with most of that money going toward the licensing fee for DC's popular characters. Will the Eagle Talon Society and the Justice League be able to stop the Joker before their budget dries up, and they're reduced to simple stick figures!?

The original Eagle Talon Flash anime centers on the titular secret society and its bumbling attempts to take over the world. The production company DLE Inc. launched the first Himitsu Kessha Taka no Tsume (Secret Society Eagle Talon) television series in 2006, and the series spawned several films. Artist FROGMAN serves as the "director/writer/character designer/sound Recording Engineer/Flash animator/editor/voice actor."

Eagle Talon GT, the anime's seventh season, premiered in April 2016 in celebration of the franchise's 10th anniversary. For the first time in the franchise's history, the show included live-action segments in addition to the anime shorts, where the series' creator FROGMAN appears in costume as the character Yoshida.

Warner Bros. Pictures' Justice League film opens in Japan on November 18, one day after opening in the United States.
