Although Jared Stern was hired to write and direct the film in 2018, there was no news from the film until May 2021, when the casting was announced. In June, the first teaser came out, but it wasn’t until later in the year that fans got a bit more of it.

As part of the DC Fandome 2021 event, the trailer for the DC League of Super-Pets The film was released in October 2021. In that same event, it was announced that the film would premiere in May 2022.

the DC League of Super-Pets is not the first film directed by Stern, but it is his first animated film. However, as his career shows, he is an expert at animation, especially when it comes to an adaptation of another medium.

8 It is based on the legion of super pets

The film is undoubtedly inspired by the Legion of Super-Pets, a team of superheroes created in 1962 by Jerry Siegel and Curt Swan. This group included several animals, which served as animal companions for other human superheroes, such as Krypto with Superman and Comet the Super-Horse with Supergirl.

The Legion of Super-Animals was created by the Legion of Super-Heroes after discovering that the Brain-Globes could not control the minds of animals. Although Super-Pets disappeared from the DC continuity in 1986, the group returned with new members in 2017 in Super Son Annual # 1.

As everyone knows, a good movie is nothing without a proper soundtrack. Considering that Jablonky’s previous work can only be described as epic, there is no doubt DC League of Super-Pets will include an action-packed plot filled with emotional and heroic moments.

6 Superman will be saved, not the savior

While fans are used to seeing Superman as the hero of every movie he’s in, DC League of Super-Pets shows a new side of the Man of Steel. First, because he is not the main character, but the owner of one of the pets. Second, because he won’t save anyone. Instead, he will be saved.

the DC League of Super-Pets The film follows the story of Krypto the Superdog, who forms a team of overpowered pets after Lex Luthor’s capture of the Justice League. Although the animals chosen by Krypto are new in their powers, under the guidance of the dog they will face any kind of threat with courage.

5 Krypto to be voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Considering that Krypto the Superdog is a fearless and powerful hero, it makes sense that he would be voiced by someone as brave as him. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a perfect choice. He’s no stranger to action-packed movies and he’s played a hero on several occasions, and his unique voice adds a charming texture to Krypto’s character.

Although Johnson started his career as a professional wrestler, he has been playing for around 20 years and this is not his first role as a voice actor. In 2016, he brought the Polynesian demigod Maui to life in Disney’s Moana.

4 Kevin Hart to voice Ace the Bat-Hound

Although it has not been announced, DC history shows that Ace will become Batman’s sidekick, Ace The Bat-Hound. This means that Krypto and Ace’s friendship will be like Bruce and Clark’s. Now, given the nature of Hart’s career, it’s very likely that the dynamics of these dogs will be filled with humorous moments, and Ace will surely be one of the funniest characters in the movie.

3 It features many other talented actors

Other additional voices will be provided by famous actors like Vanessa Bayer, Kate McKinnon, Jameela Jamil, Keanu Reeves and Ben Schwartz. While the trailer has already shown that the film will be filled with lovable characters, its cast also shows that it will be really fun to watch.

2 The entire Justice League will be represented

Although Super-Pets are the main characters in the film, there will be other DC characters on them. For example, the entire Justice League, which will include Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern, not as Hal Jordan, but as Jessica Cruz.

Considering that Green Lantern has yet to officially appear in the DCEU, it’s kind of a treat for the public. It is very likely that many other comic book characters will appear in the film, and there is no doubt that there will be several Easter Eggs for longtime DC fans to rejoice.

1 This may be the healthiest DCEU movie to date

DC League of Super-Pets is one of the most different representations of the DC Universe to date, especially considering how dark the DC Extended Universe tends to be. Either way, that doesn’t make the film any less important and it should be seen as part of the DCEU.

This has been confirmed by its creators and it is also a logical conclusion that follows from the fact that it is produced by the same conglomerate, Warner Bros. Pictures. Anything is possible in the Multiverse, so maybe the movie will even include references to other DCEU movies.
