Warner Bros. has officially announced the release date for their upcoming animated film, DC Super Pets – May 21, 2021.
DC Super Pets is from directors Jared Stern and Sam Levine and producer Patty Hicks. Based, in part on the 1962 concept of the “Legion of Super-Pets,” DC Super-Pets started life as a children’s publishing series from Capstone Publishers combining the pets of a number of DC superheroes (including Superman’s dog Krypto, Batman’s dog Ace The Bat-Hound, and Supergirl’s pet cat, Streaky) into a crime-fighting team of their own. Outside of the Capstone series, the property also appeared as a short on Cartoon Network’s DC Nation animated block.
Last summer it was reported that a Super Pets film was in development at Warner Bros. with Jared Stern hired to write and direct the film, set to be an animated adventure about the furry friends of DC Comics characters. Stern is certainly familiar with animated DC Comics adventures, having previously written The LEGO Batman Movie.
