Just when the supremacy of comic book cinema dominating our movie screens feels like it has possibly hit critical mass, DC throws us a bone from an entirely different angle and offers a cure to anyone struggling with superhero fatigue. Released today from DC Fandome, we've finally gotten our first proper look at the animated adventure-comedy, "DC League of Super-Pets." Yes, you read that correctly, DC loves us enough to give us superhero dogs to squeal over in delight. "Paw Patrol," eat your furry little hearts out.

DC League of Super-Pets Teaser

Until today, DC has kept pretty tight-lipped about the "Super-Pets," revealing only that Superman's dog Krypto, Batman's dog Ace the Bat-Hound, Wonder Woman's kangaroo Jumpa, and Supergirl's cat Streaky the Supercat all join forces to create their own lil' pet version of the Justice League in order to fight crime. The film comes to us from writer Jared Stern ("The Lego Batman Movie," "Green Eggs and Ham," "The Lego Ninjago Movie") in his co-directorial debut alongside animator Sam Levine ("Treasure Planet," "Tarzan," "Bolt").

The first big casting announcement came in May of 2021 when we learned that Dwayne Johnson will star as the voice of Krypto the Superdog, followed by the news that Kevin Hart had been cast as Ace the Bat-Hound and Marc Maron as Lex Luthor. The trio will be joined by Hollywood heavy hitters like Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, Diego Luna, Michael Douglas, Jameela Jamil, and Keanu Reeves in yet-to-be-confirmed characters.

"DC League of Super-Pets" is due out in theaters on May 20, 2022.
