No, you do not need a US visa. You only need a US visa if you intend to stop or change planes in the US. (This visa-free overflight is the same for any other country.

As I understand it the rules depend a lot on the circumstances surrounding your travel to the EU (I think the rules for this are similar across the EU but i'm not 100% sure on that).
