Meet Superman’s pooch: Krypto the Super-Dog (Johnson). The super-powered canine and his Kryptonian owner (Krasinski) are inseparable pals, sharing powers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and his fellow Justice League heroes are suddenly kidnapped, it’s up to Krypto and a rat-tag pack to use their newfound powers on a rescue mission.
This looks like a good bit of fun, with a strong voice cast and colourful action. And of course, there’s the DC of it all, with plenty of fun to be had in this universe’s playground (and with sly mentions of another certain universe? “Why couldn’t I have gotten a magic hammer or something?” asks Hart’s Ace the hound). Reeves as Batman is an inspired choice, too.
Directing is Jared Stern (co-writer of The Lego Batman Movie), with Sam Levine (co-creator of Disney animated series Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero) as co-director. Stern also penned the screenplay with The Lego Batman and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 scribe John Whittington.
DC League of Super-Pets, also featuring voice work from Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, Diego Luna, Marc Maron, Thomas Middleditch, Ben Schwartz, and Dascha Polanco, will open in U.S. cinemas on July 29th and Australian cinemas on September 15th.
