Dwayne Johnson signing up for another DC Role in ‘League of the Super Pets’
It seems The Rock is cooking in more ways than one.
Dwayne Johnson has been working on his role as DC’s newest on-screen superhero Black Adam. But that’s not the only DC role he will be playing. It was recently announced that he has been cast to be the voice of Krypto the Super Dog in DC’s latest movie ‘League of Super Pets’. The movie is an animated action and adventure film and is set to be released next year. It is produced by Johnson’s own company Seven Bucks Production in association with Warner Bros. Pictures’ Warner Animation Group and DC Entertainment.
Is this Dwayne Johnson’s first rodeo?
This is not Dwayne Johnson’s first voice acting gig as he has also voiced Maui in Disney’s animated film ‘Moana’ where he even sang a song. The movie and his role were loved by kids and adults alike! So, there’s a lot of excitement and anticipation in regards to the new animated production.
The plot of the movie revolves around Krypto and a flying cat joining forces to fight evil while Superman is away. The information available about the movie is scarce as details of the plot are currently being kept under wraps.
Though, Dwayne Johnson is pretty excited for the movie:
“Been ‘classified’ for a while now – excited to finally announce it, because I know the FUN this movie will bring families. From #BlackAdam to Superman’s dog, #Krypto it’s a privilege to help build out our @DCComics Universe. DC’s LEAGUE OF SUPER PETS.”
What we know about the movie so far
Krypto the Super Dog debuted in Action Comics in 1955 as Superman’s canine companion. Usually represented as having white fur, the dog does not have any particular breed. ‘The League of Super-Pets’ movie is set to be released a few months after the Black Adam movie in which Johnson is also playing the leading role of anti-hero Black Adam.
The movie will also feature other interesting characters such as Batman’s dog: Ace the Bat-Hound, Supergirl’s cat: Streaky the Supercat, and Wonder Woman’s kangaroo: Jumpa. All the pets must join forces to fight crime while their owners are away!
Sam Levine and Jared Stern are serving as the directors of the film, with Stern also being the writer. And we also have a teaser!
