The movie’s teaser reveals a star-studded cast of actors, such as Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Reeves, Hart and Dwayne Johnson. Johnson is playing Krypto the Superdog: Superman’s best friend and loyal pet.

Hart is voicing “Ace the Bathound,” Batman’s canine crime-fighting partner. His first appearance was in “Batman #92 (June 1955).” He teamed up with Batman after his master was attacked by counterfeits.

On his Instagram, Johnson first unveiled the trailer with the caption, “Ladies, gents and children of ALL AGES it’s my absolute pleasure to INTRODUCE our star-studded @DCLeagueOfSuperPets cast playing our league of two and four-legged heroes and villains!

Krypto the Superdog originated from Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s Superman runs. On the other hand, Ace the Bathound debuted in Bill Finger and Sheldon Moldoff’s Batman series.

The film’s existence was first announced in July 2018 with Jared Stern to write and direct the movie. He’s worked on both “The Lego Batman Movie” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie.”  His past work includes “Bolt,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” and “The Princess and the Frog.”  Sam Levine is co-directing.
