According to a new promo video for the upcoming Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, Deathstroke 2 made $301 million over its opening weekend. Of course, we all know that’s not right. The real film in question here is Deadpool 2, but the promo video is playing off a long-running comic book joke that the two characters -- Deathstroke and Deadpool -- are frequently mistaken for each other.
That joke has played a pivotal role in trailers for the Teen Titans GO! movie, which casts Deathstroke as its main antagonist. In the film, Deathstroke acts as Robin’s ticket to stardom, as the young hero reckons he can get a movie made about himself if he is finally able to take down his archnemesis. Deathstroke, who is formulating a world-ending plan, makes for the perfect target.
Teen Titans GO! to the Movies is the big screen adaptation of the Cartoon Network series Teen Titans GO!, which revolves around what the young superhero adventuring team does in their downtime. The animated series is not to be confused with the upcoming live-action series Titans, which will take a more serious tone despite being centered around the same team of young heroes.
Teen Titans Go! to the Movies comes to theaters July 27. The film stars Scott Menville, Greg Cipes, Khary Payton, Tara Strong, Hynden Walch and Will Arnett.
