Teen Titans Go! to the Movies’ Best Comic Book Easter Eggs

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, in theaters now.


Teen Titans Go! to the Movies carries on the spirit of the cult-favorite animated series, packing its 88-minute run time with madcap humor and, yes, tons of Easter eggs. There are so many visual and auditory nods that catching one may mean you miss four others. But the Warner Bros. film doesn’t restrict itself to DC characters — it has plenty of Marvel jokes as well.

Below we gather the funniest, and most satisfying, “wink-wink, nudge-nudge” moments from the feature.

A Veritable Smorgasbord of DC Cameos

The movie opens with a Teen Titans Go! version of the DC Extended Universe introduction that displays all of the A-list heroes and villains.

The story begins with a rampage through Jump City by Balloon Man, the Inflated Destroyer, an obscure villain that debuted in 1967 in DC’s Metal Men #24. Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman and Green Lantern John Stewart arrive to deal with the monstrosity.

When the Titans show up for the premiere of Batman’s new movie, they see Supergirl on the red carpet wearing Plastic Man as a dress, and Robin accidentally steps on The Atom. We also see the Challengers of the Unknown being let in by the bouncer. In the theater is where the majority of the cameos take place. We spotted The Flash, Alfred Pennyworth, Shazam, Martian Manhunter, Detective Chimp, Metamorpho, Steel, Deadman, Miss Martian, The Spectre, Commissioner Gordon, Aqualad, Speedy, Bumblebee, Red Tornado, Aquaman, Animal Man, Hawkman, Kid Flash, Blue Beetle, Swamp Thing, Krypto, Amethyst, Green Lantern Tomar-Re, Wildcat, Red Arrow, Ralph Dibny, Superboy, the Wonder Twins and Batgirl.

To reassure Robin, the Titans recount what they were each doing before banding together. When Raven tells her story, we see her father Trigon. When it’s explained to Robin that all real heroes have arch-enemies, we see Lex Luthor, Sinestro and minor Flash foe the Rainbow Raider.

During Robin’s Lion King dream, Hawkwoman, Mera and various members of the Green Lantern Corps are introduced among a cavalcade of heroes, most of whom we’ve already seen.

At one point, you can also catch a glimpse of Gizmo, a member of the H.I.V.E Five from Teen Titans Go!, and a longtime Teen Titans comic book foe.

The trailer for Robin’s solo movie features Doctor Light, who’s a primary villain from the animated series. There also members of the Gotham City street gang the Mutants, introduced in 1986 in Frank Miller’s influential Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.
