DC's League of Super-Pets Film Features At Least One Human Superhero

The upcoming League of Super-Pets film will center on animal heroes, the film will feature at least one human superhero-- the most iconic superhero around.

Bringing the Silver Age League of Super-Pets concept to the big screen is "a dream come true," said Hiram Garcia, president of production at Seven Bucks Productions, which is co-producing the computer-animated film. "It's a lot of fun," Garcia said of DC League of Super-Pets, Collider reported. "As a Superman fan and a huge dog lover, having the ability to tell the story of Krypto and Superman is a dream come true! It's such a charming story, and then in addition we get to introduce the League of Super-Pets and all those wonderful characters. We have such an amazing cast of actors, and anytime you can get Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart together doing what they do, you know it's going to be a big, fun ride for audiences."

Garcia added, "This is such a huge project that we've been working on for a while, so we were thrilled when we finally made the announcement. [Seven Bucks co-founder and co-owner] Dany [Garcia], Dwayne and I have always been big DC fans at heart, so to be able to play in this space and tell these stories, based on these beloved characters, is truly an honor. I think fans are going to be very happy with what we've been cooking up. That is set to come out next year in May."

The Legion of Super-Pets first appeared in Adventure Comics #293 (written by Jerry Siegel with artwork by Curt Swan and George Klein). Johnson provides the voice of Superman's dog Krypto, with frequent co-star Kevin Hart as Ace, the Bat-Hound, who join Supergirl's cat Streaky and Wonder Woman's kangaroo Jumpa to fight evil. Johnson and Hart both starred in Central Intelligence, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and sequel Jumanji: The Next Level. Hart also had a cameo in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
