Maybe this movie will have Michael B. Jordan sneaking into a Dauntless and secretly being part of a squadron....or Chadwick Boseman guilting Admiral Nimitz into letting him fly an Avenger

IIRC the first time this movie was revealed it was part of an announcement of a bunch of Chinese movie studios getting together to fund a WW2 based film for the American market.

I half-joked they were going to find someway to shoehorn in a famous Chinese actor playing a pilot who participated in the Battle of Midway but seeing as how part of this film is the Doolittle Raid I now wouldn't be surprised if the landing in China part was a good chunk of the piece.
