DC League of Super-Pets: meet the characters of the new animated adventure

 There's a new superhero squad in town – and no, they're not in live-action. Meet the adorable squad working hard to save the day in this week's new family release, DC League of Super-Pets.

From the makers of The LEGO Movie, this all-star adventure showcases the canine companions of Superman and Batman. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart voice Krypto and Ace whose loyalty to their masters (voiced, respectively, by John Krasinski and Keanu Reeves) is matched only by their sassy attitudes.

When Supes and Bats are kidnapped by the nefarious Lex Luthor (Marc Maron), Krypto and Ace must call on the animal equivalent of the Justice League to save the day. In anticipation of the movie, here's the gang.

1. Krypto

Voiced by Dwayne Johnson

A dog whose bite is as powerful as his bark, Krypto is steadfastly loyal to Clark Kent/Superman. And don't be fooled by that fluffy exterior – Krypto is as impervious as Superman is. Check out the following video teasing Dwayne Johnson and Hart's on-screen chemistry, which we've already experienced in the likes of Central Intelligence and the Jumanji movies.


2. Ace

Voiced by Kevin Hart

AKA the Wonder Dog, Ace attempts to match his master Batman in the growling, brooding stakes. The following video explores Kevin Hart's vocal performance and his relationship with Dwayne Johnson.

American Pie's Natasha Lyonne voices the terrapin Merton, beloved sidekick of The Flash/Barry Allen (voiced by John Early).
