DC Comics has the theatrical realm covered on two fronts this year. For the DC Extended Universe fans out there, Aquaman swims into theaters in December, reuniting us with Jason Momoa's Arthur Curry and further exploring his Atlantean heritage. But if it's a lighthearted, animated movie you're looking for, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies will have you covered in July, and the latest poster for the comical team's jump to the silver screen also doubles at an amusing jab at one of the Justice League posters released last year.
Arguably the most eye-catching poster that Warner Bros and DC put out for Justice League last year depicted Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg standing triumphantly together, and in the center, it read "You Can't Save The World Alone," using the heroes' symbols to replace certain letters. For Teen Titans Go! to the Movies' poster (via Fandango), Robin, Stafire, Beast Boy, Raven and Cyborg (Vic Stone gets around) are also standing together, but unlike their live action, serious allies, they're in no way qualified to save the world... at all. It's okay, though. While we sat in theaters to watch the DCEU Justice League defeat Steppenwolf and keep Earth safe, those who check out Teen Titans Go! to the Movies want to see particular heroes get into shenanigans and hijinks. This isn't the first time Teen Titans Go! to the Movies has had a little fun with the DCEU, as the trailer came out last month tried to ride off the success of the Wonder Woman movie.
Spinning out of the New Teen Titans shorts that were broadcast during the DC Nation programming block, the Teen Titans Go! TV series has been going strong since 2013. Serving as a comedic spinoff to the Teen Titans animated series from last decade, the series focuses on what Robin, Stafire, Beast Boy, Raven and Cyborg are up to when not fighting the force of evil. Teen Titans Go! to the Movies will see the protagonists traveling to Hollywood so they can get their big movie break, but one of their greatest enemies will intercept them along the way. Along with Scott Menville, Chary Payton, Tara Strong, Hynden Walch and Greg Cipes all reprising their respective Titans, Will Arnett and Kristen Bell will be lending their vocal talents as Slade Wilson (a.k.a. Deathstroke) and Jade Wilson, respectively.
