DC's League of Super-Pets Trailer Namedrops Marvel's Iron Man

Warner Bros. released the first trailer for DC League of Super-Pets.

The trailer begins with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Krypto the Superdog waking up John Krasinski's Clark Kent/Superman to take him for a walk. Krypto and Superman then reflect on their relationship (as Superman namedrops Iron Man after using his heat vision to iron his shirt), but it's clear that Krypto's relationship with other animals is lacking. Eventually, Lex Luthor takes out Superman, but a meteorite imbues several other animals with superpowers. Together, they form the League of Super-Pets to save the Man of Steel.

Along with the new trailer, Warner Bros. released the first official synopsis for DC League of Super-Pets, in which "Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes."

DC League of Super-Pets was announced in 2018, with The LEGO Batman Movie's Jared Stern both penning and directing the feature. The film is loosely inspired by the Legion of Super-Pets, which debuted in 1962's Adventure Comics #293 by Jerry Siegel, Curt Swan and George Klein and consisted of Beppo the Super-Monkey, Comet the Super-Horse, Krypto the Superdog, Streaky the Supercat and later grew to include Detective Chimp, Proty II, Bat-Cow, Flexi the Plastic Bird, Clay Critter and Titus.

"It's a lot of fun," producer Hiram Garcia said in August. "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."

DC League of Super-Pets arrives in theaters May 20, 2022.
