League Of Super-Pets Cast To Include Kevin Hart, Keanu Reeves, Kate McKinnon, And More!
Last month, we learned that a new animated movie featuring super pets was in the works, with Dwayne Johnson cast as Krypto the Superdog. Well hold onto your capes because Johnson announced the rest of the League of Super-Pets cast and it is AMAZING! The cast includes Kevin Hart (Jumanji: The Next Level), Keanu Reeves (the John Wick movies), Saturday Night Live stars Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer, John Krasinski (A Quiet Place I and II), Diego Luna (Rogue One), and Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll).
Hart is cast as Ace the Bat-Hound, a German Shepherd who helped out Batman and Robin. He was first seen in Batman #92 (July 1955) and was created by Bill Finger and Sheldon Moldoff. Ace was originally found by Batman and Robin after his master, John Wilker, was kidnapped by a gang of counterfeiters. Wilker was later unable to take care of Ace, so he left the dog to Bruce Wayne, who fashioned a hood-like mask for him and helped the caped crusader apprehend various criminals.
While we know the general plot will revolve around Krypto teaming up with other super-pets to save the world while Superman is away on vacation, not much else is known. There was a DC Super-Pets shorts series that aired on Cartoon Network from 2013-2014, so perhaps that holds a hint of what’s to come? It’s also unclear who will voice the other super-pets, but given the all-star lineup and the fact that this is a movie about cute super-powered animals, I think any pairing will be great!

Johnson’s production company Seven Bucks has also signed on to produce. Writer-director Jared Stern is behind the film, from Warner Bros and Warner Animation Group. Sam Levine is co-director. Patricia Hicks, Stern and Seven Bucks’ Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia are producing. John Requa, Glenn Ficarra and Nicholas Stoller are executive producing.
The DC League of Super-Pets is going to be released in theaters May 20, 2022.
