“DC League of Super-Pets” is “super-amazing!”
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of The Justice League, are the most iconic superheroes on the planet. Still, even, mostly super powered, iconic heroes need assistance and we aren’t talking about your traditional sidekicks! We are speaking on their pets!
Super-Pets To The Rescue!
Superman’s dog, Krypto (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), a Kryptonian labrador retriever, gifted with the same powers as The Man of Steel, helps him patrol and keep Metropolis safe. He loves their life, but feels it is being disrupted when Superman reveals he is going to propose to Lois Lane.
He and Superman stop Lex Luthor from reeling in a meteorite rife with orange kryptonite. (Unlike green kryptonite which weakens Kryptonians, the orange one grants earthlings super powers). Surprisingly, a piece is stolen by Lex’s nefarious test guinea pig, Lulu (Kate McKinnon). She uses it command an army of guinea pigs to overwhelm the Justice League and heads to release Lex from prison! It is up to Krypto to save the day, but he will need some help! Some “super-pet” help!
Coincidentally a group of animals gain their own powers when Lulu unwittingly exposes them all to the orang kryptonite. He recruits, Ace (Kevin Hart) an earthborn boxer (dog breed) with superhuman strength and invincibility, Streaky a cat who can explosives and artillery from body traits, Merton a turtle with super speed, PB a pig who can alter her size, and Chip a squirrel with electrokinesis. Together, they unite as The League of Super-Pets, to stop Lulu from freeing Luthor and helping him take over the world!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart Star In DC League of Super-Pets!
DC League of Super-Pets is very family friendly film. It was a great way for DC Comics and Warner Bros. to introduce a new generation of children to some lesser know comic book characters. Even if you are not into the “kiddy” aspects of the film; the star studded voice over cast will win you over. As we aforementioned, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon all star in the film. However, you will also hear the voice talents of Keanu Reeves, Keith David, Daveed Diggs, John Krasinski, and many others!
