The Rock, Critter Cast Save Superman – Deadline


The first official trailer for the upcoming Warner Bros. Animation DC League of Super-Pets starring and produced by Dwayne Johnson, a (Super) man’s best friend is his only hope. After Superman (John Krasinski) is dismissed by Lex Luthor, Man of Steel’s staunch companion, Krypto, sets out to save the day.

While Superman has Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League by his side, Krypto only has “a bunch of shelter pets” who, thankfully, have been imbued with superpowers.

Johnson, of course, plays Krypto, while his motley group is made up of Ace (Kevin Hart), a dog who has super strength; PB (Vanessa Bayer), a named pig who can grow to massive size instantly; Merton (Natasha Lyonne) a super fast turtle; and Chip (Diego Luna), a squirrel who can shoot electricity with the tips of his little fingers.

“My best friend is in trouble and you have to help me,” Krypto said, rallying the troops. What follows is an adventure full of challenges, surprises and potty humor.

The reunion with Hart represents the comedian’s fourth film with Johnson. The duo also starred in both Jumanji cinema and Central intelligence together – Hart also played an uncredited role in Johnson’s Fast Furious spin off, Hobbs & Shaw.

The project represents Johnson’s second with DC after the New Line / DC movie Black adam, in which he plays the main character, with his production Seven Bucks. DC League Of Super-Pets marks the star’s third animated film, after Planet 51 and Moana.
