Keanu Reeves is Batman in New “DC League of Super-Pets” Trailer
Robert Pattinson and Michael Keaton aren’t the only Batmen in town. Enter Keanu Reeves, who is lending his voice to Batman in Warner Bros. upcoming animated film DC League of Super-Pets. Reeves joins a massively talented cast, including Dwayne Johnson as Krypto the Super-Dog, in directors Jared Stern and Sam Levine’s upcoming animated adventure. One of Batman’s helpers in the film, Ace, is voiced by Kevin Hart. Reeves, Johnson, and Hart are joined by the likes of Vanessa Bayer as PB, Natasha Lyonne as Merton, Diego Luna as Chip, John Krasinski as Superman, Marc Maron as Lex Luthor, and more (much more), including Kate McKinnon in an unspecified role.
The new trailer reveals Batman and Ace discussing their difficult pasts. It’s not for nothing that this Batman-centric DC League of Super-Pets trailer played in theaters before Matt Reeves’s The Batman, giving Caped Crusader fans a little cuddle before they took in that grim, gorgeous Gotham-set reboot. Yet DC League of Super-Pets doesn’t just stick to Gotham—considering we’ve got both Super-Dog and Superman in the film (Dwayne Johnson and John Krasinski, respectively), we know Super-Pets will be venturing beyond the Gotham City borders into the larger DC universe.
DC League of Super-Pets soars into theaters on May 20. Check out the Bat-tastic trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis from Warner Bros:
Dwayne Johnson stars as the voice of Krypto the Super-Dog in Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated action-adventure feature film “DC League of Super-Pets,” from director Jared Stern.
In “DC League of Super-Pets,” Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle, and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes.
