Superman and Batman are still part of the DC superhero animated movie. John Krasinski has taken on the voice of Man of Steel and Keanu Reeve becomes the Dark Knight, but the movie is all about Dwayne Johnson, not as Black Adam, but as Krypto the Superdog.
According to CinemaBlend, the movie opens up with a traditional superhero vs supervillain battle. Lex Luthor (Marc Maron) has obtained a meteorite of orange kryptonite. Lex hopes that the kryptonite will give him superpowers to fight the Justice League. It turns out that kryptonite doesn’t work on humans. It does however work on animals, which Lulu, a guinea pig and former LexCorp test animal already knows. She gets her hand on the kryptonite and gives herself powers. She also gives new abilities to Ace, pot-bellied pig PB, Merton, and Chip.
