The all-star cast of the animation, alongside their dedicated pets, will show a more comical side to some of the most famous superheroes.

Keanu Reeves' Batman leads a new trailer for 'DC League Of Super-Pets', which hits cinemas this May.

The fresh look at the family animation delves a little further into the background of the troubled superhero, as well as his dog Ace, voiced by comedian Kevin Hart.

Unlike his most recent live-action cinema outing with Robert Pattinson, Batman will be taking more of a backseat here in 'Super-Pets', as the storyline will more closely follow Krypto the Super-Dog and his superhero owner Superman, who are voiced by Dwayne Johnson and John Krasinski respectively.

The Warner Bros. animated action-adventure, from director Jared Stern and Sam Levine also stars plenty more recognisable voices in the cast. Kate McKinnon ('Saturday Night Live'), Natasha Lyonne ('Russian Doll'), Vanessa Bayer ('SNL'), Diego Luna ('Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'), Thomas Middleditch ('Silicon Valley') and Ben Schwartz ('Sonic the Hedgehog') will all appear throughout the feature, with Marc Maron ('Joker') playing the big baddie Lex Luthor,.

With a movie title like 'DC League of Super-Pets', it's the animals who are going to steal the show this time around. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto the Super-Dog must convince a rag-tag shelter pack consisting of Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the heroes.

Expected to be a feature film for both older and younger audiences, here's the new trailer for the superhero animation.
