DC League of Super-Pets arrived in theaters this past weekend, and star Dwayne Johnson has now taken to Instagram to, uh, spoil the movie's post-credits scene.
In that, John Krasinski's Superman is confronted by Black Adam, along with his dog Anubis. Krypto fools his fellow canine into flying his owner to Pluto, though the stage is obviously set for the human and dog heroes to clash in a possible sequel. We've all been waiting for Superman vs. Black Adam on screen, of course, but little did we know it would happen in animation first!
"You guys already know how I feel about Superman vs Black Adam," Johnson says in the spoilery Instagram post below. "The Indestructible Force meets the Immovable Object."
"With the DC Super Pets Universe we had an opportunity to build out this awesome animated universe in a big, fun, cool way....At [Seven Bucks Productions] we have major plans to build out the Black Adam DC Universe and now the DC Super Pets Universe with our partners [Warner Bros.] & [DC Comics] - and Super Pets [and] Black Adam is just the beginning."
Johnson lends his voice to Black Adam, Anubis, and Krypto in this scene, and with the way he's talking here, it sounds like very much like he'll be instrumental in the DC Extended Universe's future. We often see the actor's fans campaign for him to becoming President, but at this rate, he may be DC Films President first!
In an interview with Newsweek, Jared Stern also opened up on this memorable stinger.
"I just felt like Dwayne Johnson is such an amazing performer and a big man. So one part wasn't enough for him. He needed to be in the scene playing three parts," the filmmaker says. "And I think he pulled it off. He feels like three completely different people - and dogs in the scene. It was just a little bit of fun."
It's obviously hard to say whether this scene is actually leading to anything, though a mid-credits tease also lays the groundwork for more stories set in this world. Reviews for the movie have been positive, so providing box office numbers are good, we could see more from this franchise very soon (including a fight between Superman, Black Adam, and their respective pets).
