In the latest DC animated film Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans, the characters lovingly parodies and pokes fun at all sorts of superhero stories and tropes. However, an unintentional comparison has been made with this year's Avengers: Endgame.
In response to a fan positing that the finale, which sees various incarnations of the eponymous team across its extensive history arrive as reinforcements against Trigon, storyboard artist Meg Syv revealed that the sequence was planned and storyboarded years before Endgame was released and was just a bit of coincidence.
this took me 1092350239834093457052982345 years to board and Endgame wasn't out yet don't do me dirty like this https://t.co/XU1WMt9WHT— Meg Syv (@BluDragonGal) September 27, 2019
The sequence in question has Robin use a device to open portals from across the DC Multiverse summoning incarnations of the Titans, including the classic Silver Age team, a black and white cartoon version, the New Teen Titans era by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, a team similar to Young Justice and more, with the portals representing those used by Doctor Strange and Wong to summon reinforcements against Thanos during the climactic battle of Endgame.
With Endgame having just come out this past April, any similarities between the two scenes is likely to be completely unintentional though love letters to their own respective histories.
Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans stars Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven and Hynden Walch as Starfire, with Kevin Michael Richardson as Trigon/Hexagon, Robert Morse as Santa Claus, Grey Griffin as Mrs. Claus, Rhys Darby as Master of Games, Sean Maher as Nightwing and "Weird Al" Yankovic as Gentleman Ghost and Darkseid. The movie is available now, on digital release, and on Tuesday, Oct. 15, on Blu-ray and DVD.
