John Krasinski’s Superman stands out among other Supermen in the DC Universe.
Krypto, and friends have arrived at the big screen through a superhero animated movie called “DC League of Super-Pets.” The movie has revealed a brand new Justice League but revolves mainly around Dwayne Johnson’s Krypto the Super-Dog and Kevin Hart’s Ace the Bat-Hound. The notable character in the movie is John Krasinsk’s Superman.
Here is what the film director Jared Stern shares in an interview with ‘The Direct’ regarding how the John Krasinsk’s Superman is different from previous ones:
Stern also describes Superpet’s Superhero as a “heroic”, “relatable” superhero who’s going through “the same kind of issues that we all do with his pet.”
he was able to just tweak his voice just a tiny bit to be like his Superman, it was just a little bit more just like a tiny bit of deadly do right, a tiny bit of a guy who’s here to save you, but not too much. And he still really feels like a regular guy who’s having problems in our movie because he loves his dog. And his dog is a little bit jealous of his new relationship with his girlfriend, Lois Lane. And so I think he was this heroic Superman but also a relatable Superman, who’s going through the same kind of issues that we all do with his pet.
