Description

Paramount's synopsis of the film is as follows:

On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success.

They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.[2]

I don't think so. In The Cloverfield Paradox Mark Stambler says the particle accelerator will unleash supernatural forces across history in different realities, so Overlord will probably be about the Nazis experimenting with something that was released into WWII Europe by the particle accelerator.
