‘DC League Of Super-Pets’ Trailer: The Super Friends Of Four-Legged Heroes Unite To Save The Day

While there’s all sorts of upheaval going on with Warner Bros.’ live-action DC shows and movies, the animated DC League of Super-Pets still looks like a charmer. The film, which is based on an actual comic by the great Jerry Siegel, centers on the pets of famous DC Comics superheroes. A lot of the fun of this one is the voice cast, which includes Dwayne Johnson as Krypto the Superdog, Kevin Hart as Batman’s canine pal Ace the Bat-hound, Vanessa Bayer as Wonder Woman’s pet pig PB, Natasha Lyonne as Flash’s turtle Merton, Diego Luna as Green Lantern’s squirrel friend Chip.

The latest trailer reveals slightly more of the story. Krypto, Ace, and the other four-legged friends must join forces when Superman, voiced by John Krasinski, and the Justice League are kidnapped. Keanu Reeves voices Batman, while Marc Maron is the villainous Luthor.

Directed by Jared Stern, DC League of Super-Pets opens in theaters on July 29th.

In “DC League of Super-Pets,” Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the Super Heroes.
