It’s an exciting time to be a DC Comics fan, with Shazam! and Aquaman on the horizon and Wonder Woman 84 due out next year. Aside from the many films currently under production in the DCU pipeline, Warner Bros. have decided to branch out, and explore other stories outside the continuity of their shared universe. The recently released Teen Titans Go! To The Movies has proven to be a hit with audiences everywhere, and it seems the studio intends to further capitalize on the successful family friendly formula.
In an exclusive from Collider, news has broken that The Lego Batman Movie writer Jared Stern will both write and direct an animated Super Pets movie for Warner Bros. The film will presumably follow the adventures of DC characters’ furry friends such as Krypto the Super Dog and Ace the Bat Hound. The Super Pets first appeared way back in Adventure Comics #293, published in 1962.
Stern is well known for his work in animation, having written The Lego Ninjago Movie, as well as contributing to hit Disney films like Wreck-It Ralph and Bolt. It’s currently unknown which incarnation of the team Stern will use, as there have been a number of characters introduced under the Super Pets name since their debut. Whatever the case may be, Stern’s resume speaks for itself, and we can be sure to expect a fun and heartwarming adventure featuring DC’s house pet heroes.

The Lego Batman Movie – “In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: “The LEGO® Batman Movie.” But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.”
