** In the first teaser, the Titans talk about how good ''Film/WonderWoman'' is, and how much they suck in comparison. Fast forward to the movie's release, and this movie's Website/RottenTomatoes score ended up being higher than that of every Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse film at the time... except ''Wonder Woman''.

* TakeThatScrappy: The first trailer had Superman ''and'' [[VillainHasAPoint Slade]] calling out the Titans on never actually doing anything heroic and mocking some of their more fan-reviled antics.

** According to the voice actors, if the movie does well enough, they will give the 2003 series a sixth season. [[spoiler: The mid-credits scene seems to confirm this.]]



** "How come one of the most hated modern cartoons gets a theatrical movie but {name of popular cartoon} didn't?" This is especially notable given that it's a SpinOff of [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans a better-received series]] that only got the MadeForTVMovie ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'', that it is only the second Creator/CartoonNetwork show since 2002's ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'' to get a theatrical movie, ''and'' because ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' was previously announced to get the theatrical treatment only for that movie to be stuck in DevelopmentHell for years before being scrapped.

* HarsherInHindsight: Stan Lee cameo-ing in this film and making fun of no cameo being too small for him, even in a DC property. Sadly he would pass away near the end of 2018.



** When the Titans sneak into a movie premiere, they see a trailer for a Alfred Pennyworth movie. A little over a week after the trailer for the film came out, which used this scene, they announced an [[Series/{{Pennyworth}} Alfred series]].

* CriticalDissonance: Downplayed; the film has been widely well-received from both critics and audiences, but the audience rating was 25% around the time of the first teaser, rising to 50% after the first trailer, so audience opinion slowly rose as more information was released and after the film launched. After release, a good number of negative user reviews on Rotten Tomatoes were complaining about the film earning a higher aggregate score than ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar''.

* InternetBackdraft: The film received massive backlash on the Internet for the following reasons:
** The ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} joke in the teaser: "If Aquaman can get a movie, why not ''Teen Titans Go!''?". DC has been trying since the 1990s to get the character taken seriously and his portrayal by Creator/JasonMomoa in the ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' movie was well-received, on top of previous adaptations like ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' (2001) and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' -- Aquaman was very much an EnsembleDarkhorse in both.[[note]]Especially notable given that TTG co-creator Michael Jelenic co-created ''The Brave and the Bold''.[[/note]] As a result, the joke just comes off as dated.
** Another minor one relating to the 2003 series is Slade being recast which, while admittedly necessary thanks to the widely different tones, has also been criticized for recasting Creator/RonPerlman in favor of Creator/WillArnett.
** Another point of contention for some fans was the possibility of the 2003 series being brought back if the movie did well enough at the box office. Some people accused Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment of holding the 2003 series for ransom in exchange for making a film adaptation of a show they hate a success. Then there were others who accused WB and DC of having absolutely no intention of keeping their promise if the movie did reach its box office goal, given that ''Teen Titans Go!'' has done many [[TakeThat take thats]] to the haters. However a statement by Tara Strong made at [=DragonCon=] about it seems to indicate they may actually keep their promise, and a [[https://youtu.be/AwDIZT3XbjQ teaser]] found on the DVD confirmed that the original Teen Titans would be coming back in some form.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/NicolasCage cast as Superman can cause more than a few chuckles across comic fans given he was cast in the infamously unmade 1990s film "Superman Lives" in the same role.

** One of the movie posters seen in the film is of ''ComicBook/ChallengersOfTheUnknown''. Similar to Deathstroke's connection with Deadpool, ''Challengers of the Unknown'' predated ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', but were overshadowed by the later Marvel comic.

** Jade Wilson plans to build a streaming service called D.O.O.M.S.D.A.Y.[[labelnote:*]][[FunWithAcronyms Digitally Ordering Online Movies Streaming Directly At You]][[/labelnote]] where everyone can watch her superhero movies, with the Teen Titans movie being the first to premiere.[[labelnote:*]]This turns out to be a lie since the service's true purpose is to mind control the world.[[/labelnote]] Currently, Warner Bros. plans on releasing a streaming service called "Creator/DCUniverse" with Series/Titans2018 to be the first original show on there.
** Slade's plan to control peoples' minds (and all superheroes) via screens is remarkably similar to [[WesternAnimation/Incredibles2 Screenslaver]] even though the films were released weeks apart. [[spoiler:What also helps is that both villains have aliases as seemingly-friendly females, took advantage of people spending their time using screens for said control, and even manage to take control of the main protagonist at one point.]]

** In the first teaser, the Titans talk about how good ''Film/WonderWoman'' is, and how much they suck in comparison. Fast forward to the present, and this movie's Rotten Tomatoes score is higher than that of every then-released Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse film...except that of ''Wonder Woman''.
