In an interview with CBR.com, “DC League of Super-Pets” producer Hiram Garcia discusses what it’s like to see Dwayne Johnson go from playing Black Adam to voicing Krypto.
“It’s fun to be able to one day be working on Black Adam, picking up someone and electrocuting them till it’s just their skeleton and then crushing the skeleton, to Krypto doing crazy things as Superman’s dog in this charming story of Superman’s best friend, who is, again, all goodness and vibrance and purity and the love wrapped up into a dog that also happens to be the most powerful animal in the entire universe. So that’s really fun.”
As for what we can expect from the upcoming animated movie about Superman’s dog and his ragtag group of super-powered friends, Garcia confirms that there’ll be something for fans of all ages.
“I think you’re gonna have a lot of fun with Super-Pets. It’s such a charming story. That group of actors are all so talented. Anytime you get DJ and Kevin [Hart] doing what they do, you know you’re in for a really fun ride. So we’re really excited about it. It’s really charming. It’s one of those movies that I think the whole family is going to be able to enjoy. Kids are going to really love it, but there’s a lot of humor in there for adults and especially fans of superhero movies, that I think everyone’s gonna walk away having a really good time having seen it.”
“There’s a lot of wish fulfillment. It’s a lot of laughs. Ultimately, it’s a really fun ride that gives you a perspective into the superhero world, especially when you’re dealing with the Justice League, through the eyes of these pets, that are awesome.”
“Ultimately, I think so much of the world can relate to the love, the connection someone has with their pet. We really are able to tap into that when you consider that Krypto is Superman’s best friend, and really, Krypto is the only other person on this planet that is from Krypton, like Superman. So there’s a special bond that goes even deeper between the two that we really have fun playing with.”
“DC League of Super-Pets” will be released to theaters on May 20, 2022.
