Jameela Jamil Announces That She Will Be A Super-Pet
While Jameela Jamil has not confirmed any news about her MCU role, she has announced that she’s joining a new DC-based project. The actress on her social media announced that she is joining the already impressive cast of the upcoming DC animated movie, DC League of Super-Pets. She shared her excitement for the project saying “One. Step. Closer. To. Keanu” since he is one of the cast. However, she didn’t share which character she’ll be voicing.
Jamil on her Instagram said “Life is extremely getting increasingly silly at the moment. PS. I’m such a super fan of all of these people. I’m going to nerd out so hard at the premiere. Expect many embarrassing selfies. Sorry in advance.”
In May 2021, it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star as the voice of Man of Steel’s loyal pooch, Krypto the Superdog. That news was followed by a small teaser two weeks ago revealing the rest of the A-list ensemble cast and the title logo of the animated film.
