DC The Teen Titans Go! cartoon aired for almost an entire decade. Not only that, but the animated program, which airs on Cartoon Network, has also spawned video games, direct-to-video adaptations, and even a theatrically released feature film.
The show, which is sort of a spiritual successor to the original Teen Titans series broadcast from 2003 to 2006, is undeniably lighter than its predecessor. The 2003 incarnation was darker and more mature in its stories and characters, while The Teen Titans Go! is a very silly and irreverent comedy.
Of course, few DC projects are darker than the films directed by Zack Snyder. The filmmaker crafted his own take on DC characters and mythos in his movies Steel man and batman versus supermanas well as his own cup of Justice League.
Snyder Guest Stars on The Teen Titans Go!
Steel man director Zack Snyder recently starred in the Cartoon Network series Teen Titans Go!, aAnd he brought with him his inimitable dark and gritty style as he transformed the series’ kid-friendly characters into lifelike animated versions of themselves in battle against Darkseid and his Parademons.
Check out some clips that were posted on Twitter below.
Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Raven come face to face with Snyder himself:
This clip shows a bit more of the battle between the Titans and Darkseid, with Robin riffing on Batman’s infamous dialogue from Batman vs. Superman- “Tell me, Darkseid, do you bruise easily?” »
The Titans return to their roots
The Teen Titans Go! It’s been running for so long that it’s easy to forget just how action-packed the original 2003 release was. Even though Go! borrows the same voice from the actors and the general sense of aesthetics, it is a a lot different show and one that’s much goofier and more slice of life.
So for the Titans, returning to an animation style that resembles their original look and battling Darkseid in an action-packed sequence, however briefly, is sure to be a treat for longtime fans.
After all, Zack Snyder played the lead role in the show’s 365th episode, so such a gift to the audience was certainly warranted.
Since Zack Snyder’s Justice League was dropped on HBO Max in 2021, die-hard fans are clamoring for more DC movies from the director. Warner Bros. Discovery, however, has very different plans and wants to distance itself from Snyder and his films.
The Teen Titans Go! has been renewed for an eighth season and likely shows no signs of slowing down. And as mentioned above, it airs on Cartoon Network, with previous seasons available to stream on HBO Max.
