Does Teen Titans Go! to the Movies Sneak in a Post-Credits Scene?

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

Let’s get right to it: The answer to the question posed in the headline is, yes, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies has both a mid-credits sequence and an after-credits scene. But would we expect anything less? After all, the animated feature is a send-up of Hollywood's current obsession with superhero films, so of course it has multiple stingers.

However, that's not all. The film is full of callbacks to the animated series, all-star voice cameos, obscure characters from the comics, and it even starts with a DC Super Hero Girls short, so audiences get their money's worth. Arrive to the theater on time and don’t leave until the final names have scrolled.

REVIEW: Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is Exactly What It Should Be

Based on the animated series that's aired on Cartoon Network since 2013, which is itself a comedy spinoff of an earlier, fan-favorite Teen Titans series, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies follows Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy, who discover that virtually all the superheroes in the DC Universe have received their own movie. Well, all of the superheroes except them. As we've seen in the promos, even Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred Pennyworth has his name in lights. The Teen Titans set out to rectify that, only to be rejected by a big-name director, who says no one takes them seriously any longer. Determined to change public perception, the Teen Titans aim to secure an arch-nemesis in Slade (perhaps better known as Deathstroke the Terminator). But, of course, Slade has slightly larger ambitions.

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

In keeping with the tradition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and to a lesser extent the so-called DC Extended Universe, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies includes two end-credits scenes -- one that may very well offer a clue as to what's to come, and will undoubtedly please fans, and the other that's simply a callback to a joke from early in the film. It's not exactly the detour for shawarma from Marvel's The Avengers, but it pays off nonetheless. We'll leave it at that.

Needless to say, fans of the Teen Titans, and Teen Titans Go!, no matter what their age, will want to stay in their seats until after the credits have rolled, and the theater lights have gone up. It will be worth getting home a few minutes later.

Rolling out Friday nationwide, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies stars Scott Menville, Khary Payton, Tara Strong, Hynden Walch, Greg Cipes, Will Arnett, Kristen Bell, Nicolas Cage, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, Halsey and Lil Yachty.
