Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson has had the privilege of premiering an all-new trailer for the DC League of Super-Pets animated film. For fans who don’t know, it has been quite a long road for DC’s League of Super-Pets, with the movie initially slated to release in 2021 but it got delayed due to the COVID-19.
A few months back, the DC League of Super-Pets got delayed by Warner Bros. again, pushing the film from May to July 29th, the date that was formerly held by Black Adam, another Dwayne Johnson film. And now, a new trailer for Super-Pets has finally arrived, and Dwayne Johnson is doing the promo work to get all the DC fans hyped for the animated film which will hit the theaters later this summer.
The tweet by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson:
“Stand back JUSTICE LEAGUE…we got this! Our NEW @DCSuperPets trailer!” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “@SevenBucksProd & @WBPictures welcome you & your families back to theaters with an EPICALLY FUN experience The real badasses have entered THE DC UNIVERSE! #DCSuperPets IN THEATERS 7/29!” Johnson voices the character of Krypto the Superdog, who is man’s best friend to Superman (John Krasinski). Kevin Hart lends the voice to Ace, Batman’s (voiced by Keanu Reeves) faithful sidekick.

The new trailer for DC’s League of Super-Pets also introduces the villain of the movie, who looks like a small evil guinea pig named Lulu. While she might be quite tiny but she’s also very formidable, taking out Superman with a small piece of Kryptonite while capturing the remaining Justice League. During a freak accident, Ace, along with some pet shop animals also obtains superpowers.
Super-Pets Will Release In July!
Earlier, film’s director and screenwriter Jared Stern told EW about the many threats that get the Super-Pets together for the very first time. “I wanted it to be a real threat that you felt lived up to not just a goofy movie, but a real serious superhero threat – but also one that uniquely can only be solved by a group of pets,” Stern said. “I really wanted people to come away from this movie feeling like animation is a technique and not a genre. I wanted them to feel like, ‘That was a really great superhero movie and it had everything I love in a superhero movie: It had great action, was really fun.”
DC League of Super-Pets is directed by Sam Levine and Jared Stern, with a script by Stern and the film stars Dwayne Johnson, Keanu Reeves, John Krasinski, Kevin Hart, Vanessa Bayer, Kate McKinnon, Natasha Lyonne, and Diego Luna. The film will hit the theaters on July 29th.
