Two major things have come together to produce this list. One was a List of Six I did a couple of weeks ago, detailing all of the modern super-animals in the Marvel Universe who would make fun additions to the Pet Avengers. The other is the recent trailer for the animated film DC League of Super-Pets, starring Dwayne Johnson as Krypto. We’ve known about this movie for some time now, but what we didn’t know was that this so-called “League of Super-Pets” doesn’t actually feature real DC Universe super-pets! Scandal!
Based on the trailer, the movie stars Krypto and then a bunch of random animals created for the film. There’s a dog who looks like Ace the Bat-Hound, but he’s not. Then there’s a pig, a turtle and a hyperactive squirrel, because kids love hyperactive squirrels. Why did the filmmakers go this route? Why create brand new super-animals? DC Comics has a whole plethora of wild and awesome super-pets to choose from. Granted, they don’t have a hyperactive squirrel who shoots lightning, but what important role are these specific super-animals going to bring to the film that necessitates their creation? Bah humbug, I say!
Join me after the jump as we explore existing DC Comics super-animals who deserve to be voiced by Kevin Hart in League of Super-Pets!Read the rest of this entry
Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers. I’m currently home with my family enjoying a nice, big meal. But there are still movie trailers and superheroes to enjoy! In fact, how about you check out the first official trailer for DC League of Super-Pets?
This movie is apparently not what I expected. I thought this would actually feature DC’s wide menagerie of super animals. But nope! It’s apparently just Krypto the Super Dog and then a bunch of brand new, original super-powered animals. Weird choice.
Why would you make this movie and not include the real Ace the Bat-Hound? Or Jumpa the Wonder Kangaroo? Or Streaky the Supercat? What the heck are they even making?
DC League of Super-Pets arrives in theaters in May.
