The DC League of Super-Pets trailer takes the Justice League for a walk

While it’s never ever truly been a huge part of superhero motion pictures, among the very best parts of superhero comics (and, significantly, superhero television programs) is a long and storied custom of super-pets. The good news is, the very first trailer to the WB’s upcoming animated movie DC League of Super-Pets appears like it’s going to offset that.

What’s unexpected about this trailer is simply just how much it appears like a Secret Life of Animals spinoff — if the Justice League didn’t in fact appear in it, one would fairly presume it was a follow up.

That’s because in some methods, League of Super-Pets is an origin story: While Krypto, the Super-Dog (Dwayne Johnson) appears totally formed as Superman’s (John Krasinski) devoted canine buddy, the plot of the movie appears to focus on a lot of other normal-looking animals acquiring superpowers that represent their ultimate costumed owners (or…partners?).

This consists of Ace, the Bat-Hound (Kevin Hart), in addition to lesser-known super-pets like Chip, a Green Lantern (Diego Luna) or Merton (Natasha Lyonne) a turtle with the power of the Flash.

Many intriguing, nevertheless, is PB (Vanessa Bayer), seemingly Wonder Female’s pig — yet as far as I understand, there’s no comics Wonder Pig. Nevertheless there is an episode of Justice League Unlimited where Wonder Female is become a pig by means of magic and, in the best minute of superhero tv ever made, Batman sings “Am I Blue” to raise the spell.

Super-pets guideline, however it’s gonna be tough to top that.
