While Johnson plays Krypto the Super-Dog, his rag-tag team (imbued with powers of their own) is made up of Ace the Bat-Hound (Kevin Hart), a super-strong dog; PB (Vanessa Bayer), a pig named Merton who can supersize herself; PB (Natasha Lyonne) a turtle with super speed; and Chip (Diego Luna), a squirrel who can shoot electricity from his tiny fingertips. Audiences can also look forward to a Justic League cameo.

A video game based on the same characters has also been announced; DC League of Super-Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace by Outright Games, will come to Nintendo, PlayStation 4 and later, Xbox Series One and later, and Steam.

DC League of Super-Pets — slated for a summer 2022 release — marks Johnson’s fourth collaboration with Hart; the two also starred in both Jumanji films and Central Intelligence together — unknown to many, Hart also had an uncredited part in Johnson’s Fast & Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw.

The project reps Johnson’s second with DC after the New Line/DC movie Black Adam (slated for a July 2022 release) in which he plays the title character, one of the world’s foremost wielder of magic who has been both hero and villain across various DC storylines. Meanwhile, DC League Of Super-Pets marks the star’s third theatrically-released animated film, after Planet 51 and Moana.
