James Gunn Continues Teasing DCU Live-Action Krypto in Superman: Legacy

DC Studios Co-CEO James Gunn has once again teased the appearance of Krypto the Superdog in his upcoming DC Studios movie Superman: Legacy.

Will Krypto the Superdog be in Superman: Legacy?

In an interview, Gunn and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 star Chris Pratt joked about having Pratt play Superman’s canine companion Krypto the Superdog.

“I was hoping I could cast you as Krypto the Superdog [in Superman Legacy],” Gunn told Pratt (via the Toronto Sun). “You could do motion capture on set and walk around on your hands and knees, but you can’t talk.”

After joking back and forth about being paid in cryptocurrency to play Krypto, Pratt suggested Krypto’s inclusion is breaking news, which Gunn confirmed to be a scoop.

“It sounds like there’s going to be a character called Krypto in Superman — breaking news,” Pratt said. “It is a scoop, I guess,” Gunn stated.

“Superman: Legacy tells the story of Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas,” reads the movie’s official synopsis. “He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.”

Superman: Legacy is set to premiere in theaters on July 11, 2025.
