An adorable new video parodies the Justice League trailer with the Pupstice League – a team of superdogs out to save the day. The film has been garnering some serious hype in recent weeks, as Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment builds toward this long-anticipated superhero team-up (out next month). With the new Justice League trailer released a couple of weeks ago, and tickets set to go on sale very soon, the timing of this parody is perfect.
And, as usual, YouTubers are getting excited as well by capitalizing on the hype with trailer breakdowns, discussion videos, speculation pieces, and all kinds of other content in the run-up to the Justice League’s release. Now, a new parody video joins the ranks of Justice League YouTube tributes, re-imagining the latest trailer with cute pups instead of human superheroes.
The video was created by Lootcrate Studios, and is titled ‘Pupstice League‘. The video includes a black pug as Batman, a collie as Wonder Woman, a bulldog as Aquaman, a wiener dog as Flash, a second pug as Alfred, and a terrier as Cyborg. These pups must unite against a true evil… the vacuum cleaner.
Not quite a scene-for-scene remake of the trailer (although that would be incredibly impressive), Pupstice League offers a wonderful re-imagining of the Justice League team and trailer from a dogs-eye view. Many of the elements remain, such as the Batman voiceover as the team comes together (To Stand.. And Sit!) and the individual shots of each of the dogs. The enemy has changed to the vacuum cleaner, and seemingly to the owner herself, as her puppy talk (“I want to eat you up”) is changed into a threatening voice.
The Pupstice League is absolutely adorable, and it’s a really fun way for LootCrate to advertise that one of the themes for their November box will be the Justice League (which should come as a surprise to no-one). It doesn’t give away any other spoilers about what will be in the box, of course, but it does include a final scene that may be considered a spoiler for the movie itself by some… The final moment of the trailer is of one more dog – dressed as Superman! The dog barks “Surprise, I’m in this movie too!”. Most fans, of course, have already speculated that Superman (Henry Cavill) will be returning in this film, and Henry Cavill himself has talked about doing reshoots on the film, so it’s no big surprise. But even if someone wasn’t aware that Supes is back for Justice League, this would be the most adorable way possible to find out!
