Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart reunite in the trailer for the upcoming DC kids animated feature, DC League of Super-Pets.
The film will feature the pets of some of your favorite DC superheroes such as Superman and Batman in the first theatrically released DC animated feature for younger kids.
Originally announced in July of 2018, news for DC League of Super-Pets was radio silent until the announcement that the Rock would be playing Krypto the Superdog back in May of this year. Since then he has been joined by other big-name actors such as the aforementioned Kevin Hart, Keanu Reeves, and Jameela Jamil to name a few
The trailer doesn’t show off much but it does highlight the playful relationship between the Rock’s character, Krypto, and Kevin Harts’s character, Ace the Bat-Hound, Batman’s dog from the comics.
Kevin Hart and the Rock have collaborated in quite a few movies in the past such as Jumanji: The Next Level, Central Intelligence, and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw to name a few. Considering this I’m sure the Rock and Kevin Hart will continue to share their on-screen chemistry as always in this film.
DC League of Super-Pets Marks The Theatrical Debut of Multiple DC Characters
DC League of Super-Pets will mark the feature film debut of multiple characters from the DC comics. Producer Hiram Garcia talked about introducing so many new characters in an interview from Collider:
“It’s a lot of fun. As a Superman fan and a huge dog lover, having the ability to tell the story of Krypto and Superman is a dream come true! It’s such a charming story and then in addition we get to introduce the league of Super-Pets and all those wonderful characters. We have such an amazing cast of actors, and anytime you can get Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart together doing what they do, you know it’s going to be a big, fun ride for audiences. This is such a huge project that we’ve been working on for a while so we were thrilled when we finally made the announcement.”
It is going to be fairly interesting to see some of these DC characters who wouldn’t normally be seen being put into the spotlight for DC League of Super-Pets. It seems like any Super-pet character is on the table for this film, so it will be interesting to see what characters they decided to bring in.
DC League of Super-Pets looks like it will be a super fun and different take on some of the more wacky characters that reside in the Universe. Only time will tell how the movie will be received by the DC super-fans of the world when the movie comes out on May 20, 2022.
DC League of Super-Pets stars Dwayne Johnson as Krypto the Superdog, Kevin Hart as Ace the Bat-Hound, Marc Maron as Lex Luthor, and Keanu Reeves as Batman / Bruce Wayne, with Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, Diego Luna, and Jameela Jamil being cast in undisclosed roles.
