DC and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have revealed the full cast for DC League of Super-Pets. The upcoming animated movie will feature Johnson as the voice of Krypto the Superdog, as it was recently revealed. Now, he’s revealed the stacked A-list cast who will voice several pets from the DC Comics universe alongside him.
The full cast includes Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence), Keanu Reeves (John Wick), Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live), John Krasinski (A quiet place), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) and Natasha Lyonne (russian doll). Hart plays Ace the Bat-Hound, Batman’s trusted canine companion, as revealed in the video. However, none of the other newly announced cast members had revealed their characters at this time. Johnson had this to say on Instagram.
“Ladies, gentlemen, and children of all ages, it is my absolute pleasure to introduce our star-studded cast of DC League of Super Pets playing our league of two- and four-legged heroes and villains! Our Seven Bucks Productions is back! teamed up with DC Comics and writer/director Jared Stern to bring you and your family superhero and supervillain fun around the world.”
