Sure, things in the DCEU might be a bit dark and adult-oriented, but the overarching DC mythos has plenty to offer when it comes to family-friendly content as well. While the adult heroes are off fighting Steppenwolf and Lex Luthor, the sidekicks have their own adventure coming in the form of Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. There's a lot of anticipation for the upcoming animated DC adventure, and early reactions from the film's first screening have hit the web. In fact, the opinions seem mostly positive. Check out one such response, below!
So, as you can see from what Germain Lussier had to say about Teen Titans Go! To The Movies, it looks like the film offers up some solid comedy that will appeal to the younger audiences in the theater. Beyond that, however, his tweet also acknowledges the notion that the sidekick-centric romp features some substantial subversion of traditional superhero tropes, along with some great cameos.
That's not the only reaction to Teen Titans Go! To The Movies that has hit the web since the film's first screening. Meg Downey also had a chance to screen the the DC project, and her reaction to the movie notes that it's a genuinely funny superhero adventure that will induce some great laughs. She wrote:
Lastly, we come to Scott Menzel, who had some seriously high praise for the quality of Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. Honing in on the positives with his response, he wrote that the DC adventure has even become his favorite animated movie of 2018 -- which is impressive when we consider the recent hit release of Brad Bird's Incredibles 2 over at Disney. He wrote:
Teen Titans Go! To The Movies takes a decidedly lighter approach to some of these beloved comic book heroes. Focusing on the titular Titans (the sidekick B squad of the Justice League roster), the film follows DC mainstays like Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy, and Starfire as they venture to Hollywood to thwart a villainous mastermind on a mission of world domination. It looks like the movie takes clear aim at some of the well-worn tropes of the superhero genre, and given the sheer saturation of traditional comic book movies in the Hollywood scene, one could make the argument that there's no better time for this type of cinematic outing.
So, that is the early critical consensus surrounding the release of Teen Titans Go! To The Movies, but there will undoubtedly be more opinions and more reactions as the sidekick-oriented, family-friendly comedy screens for more audiences. The film will open wide later this summer on July 27, 2018, and on the live-action side of the DC world, you can also catch the first solo adventure of Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) later this year when James Wan's Aquaman premieres on December 21.
