While it’s never been a big part of superhero movies, one of the best parts of superhero comics (and, increasingly, superhero TV shows) is a longstanding super-mascot tradition. Fortunately, the first trailer for the upcoming WB animated film. DC League of Super-Pets It looks like it’s going to make up for that.
What’s surprising about this trailer is how much it looks like a The secret life of pets spin-off: If Justice League didn’t actually appear in it, one would reasonably assume it was a sequel.
That’s because somehow League of Super Pets It’s an origin story: While Krypto the Super-Dog (Dwayne Johnson) seems fully formed as Superman’s (John Krasinski) faithful canine companion, the movie’s plot seems to revolve around a bunch of other looking pets. normal that they obtain superpowers that correspond to their eventual owners in disguise (or … partners?).
This includes Ace, the Bat-Hound (Kevin Hart), as well as lesser-known super-pets like Chip, a Green Lantern (Diego Luna), or Merton (Natasha Lyonne), a turtle with the power of Flash.
The most interesting, however, is PB (Vanessa Bayer), apparently Wonder Woman’s pig; however, as far as I know, there is no Wonder Pig comic. However there is it is an episode of Unlimited justice league where Wonder Woman is turned into a pig through magic and, in the greatest superhero television moment ever created, Batman sings “Am I Blue” to lift the spell.
Super-pets rule, but that will be hard to beat.
