2022 is certainly shaping up to be one of the memorable and most anticipated years for comic book movies. Between upcoming projects such as The Batman, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and the Ezra Miller lead Flash movie, there’s no shortage of super-heroics on the animation front! Last month, it was reported that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be pulling double duty within the DC pantheon as the actor was cast in Warner Bros.’ newest animated movie DC League of Super-Pets! Besides playing the title role in Black Adam, The Rock will be voicing none other than Superman’s faithful canine companion, Krypto the Superdog!
Joining Dwayne Johnson is an all-star voice cast that’s filled with a couple of actors that have been fan cast in other superhero roles like crazy. Kevin Hart will be lending his comedic vocal chops as Batman’s canine sidekick Ace the Bat-Hound. Rounding out the rest of the cast is Diego Luna, Kate McKinnon, Natasha Lyonne, Vanessa Bayer, John Krasinski, and Keanu Reeves! Dwayne took to his Twitter account to announce his excitement over the project in celebration of the news.

While there are no plot details at the moment, the general premise of the film will revolve around the pets of DC’s famous heroes as they form a crime-fighting team of their own. While the other roles remain a mystery from the rest of the cast, I have a feeling we’ll hear more word about that when DC FanDome returns later this year. DC League of Super-Pets is slated to hit theaters on May 20, 2022!
