(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS: In DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS, the dog Krypto comes to Earth with Superman, and of course he has super-powers. But when Lex Luthor and Lulu the Guinea Pig (don't call her a hamster!) start fooling around with green kryptonite and orange kryptonite, a group of animals at the shelter gain super-powers as well. This is clearly made to provide a family-friendly Marvel superhero movie (or family-friendler, since the Marvel superhero movies are, we believe, all PG-13). This is not an amazing addition to the canon (is it even canonical?), but there are some humorous moments, both for the adults and for the younger viewers.

(It is a little bizarre to have Dwayne Johnson voicing both Krypto and--in the inevitable coda--Black Adam.)

Released theatrically 29 July 2022. Rating: +1 (-4 to +4) or 6/10
