‘DC League of Super-Pets’ Trailer Shows Animal Hijinks
When Lex Luthor (Marc Maron) devises a sinister plan to incapacitate and capture the Justice League – led by Superman (John Krasinski), Batman (Keanu Reeves), Wonder Woman (Kate McKinnon), The Flash (Ben Schwartz), Green Lantern (Jameela Jamil), and Cyborg (voice actor unknown) – their faithful furry friends have to rise to the occasion to rescue their owners and put a stop to a dangerous plot to take over the world. Among the ranks of the nascent League of Super-Pets are Superman’s dog Krypto (Dwayne Johnson), Batman’s dog Ace (Kevin Hart), Wonder Woman’s pig PB (Vanessa Bayer), The Flash’s turtle Merton (Natasha Lyonne), and Green Lantern’s squirrel Chip (Diego Luna), most of whom have been empowered by a mysterious meteorite.
