DC Comics have infiltrated the lives of countless children and young adults alike with marvelous (pun intended) superheroes and their extraordinary powers. They have never shied away from experimenting and exploring new concepts, and they will not stop doing so anytime soon. Justice League is a popular show from DC, and everybody is sort of familiar with the idea. And since we are talking about experimentation, why not give pets superpowers instead of humans? Well, that is exactly what DC is coming up with DC Super-Pets.
It won’t be surprising to know if this is the first time you hear about it because it has been a long time since the makers talked further about it. Worry not, here is everything there is to know about the upcoming animated movie and other recent updates.
DC Super-Pets Release Date
The animated movie first made it in the news around January 2019 when it was reported that The LEGO Batman writer, Jared Stern was hired to write an animated DC Super Pets movies for Warner Bros. And it was later known that Stern is also directing the film alongside Sam Levine with a release date on May 22, 2022.
The extra time the film already has at hand is quite reassuring that the current pandemic might not affect the planned course. Other significant releases in 2022 like the sequels to Aquaman and Shazam and a packed up calendar for 2021, Super-Pets might have taken a backseat for now, but speculations are we’ll hear more about it soon.
What is it all About?
The whole concept is based in Silver Age DC comics in 1962’s Adventure Comics #263 Legion of Superheroes story. It features a Krypto – the super dog in the lead role and others like Supercat, Beppo Super-Monkey, and Comet the Super-horse, among others (you get the idea, right?) All of them come together and fight evil in the world. There was another series titled Krypto The Superdog that aired in the mid-2000s, but it didn’t do very well. In short, Justice League but with animals.
DC Super-Pets Teaser/Trailers
Seven seconds super short teaser is out on Twitter. It gave the first impression of Krypto the Superdog, flying around with his red cloak looking majestic AF. But that’s about it.
But something is better than nothing, right. More teaser/trailers are likely to follow soon. So keep looking out for them.
DC Super-Pets Cast and Characters
As of now, Krypto the Superdog, is the only confirmed character that is known. Though we mentioned the other characters, it is unpredictable to say the other characters would be the same. The other characters might come up with modifications to their original self unless an official announcement is made. Also, there is no news yet about who will be voicing these characters. But since its DC and WB, we’re talking about, expect some big names.
DC Super-Pets is undoubtedly going to be a hit among pet lovers or others alike because DC has been doing its awesome things for a long, long time now.
