As the movie's release date draws near, there will be numerous multi-part rant videos about it that are almost twice as long as the movie itself. Every Caustic Critic on the internet will be declaring the end of days. Riots will break out in the street over the movie's existence. It will become impossible to ignore the movie... and the studio will use that to its advantage. People will go to see if it really is that bad, every single TTG hater will be lined up on opening day just to be the first to tear the movie a new one. As a result of the movie's huge negative attention, it will end up a major box office success, shattering numerous records until it becomes the highest grossing animated movie of all time, and with its success it will usher in a new age of 2D animated movies. And it will have the millions of angry anti-fans to thank for it.Unlike The Emoji Movie, however, professional critics will give it decent but not spectacular reviews.
- The film has actually received positive reviews from most audiences and critics.
- A Take That! to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- Disrespect to Walt Disney humor.
- Agonizing extended gag.
- There's already one in the teaser (the fart joke).
- In the vein of "Let's Get Serious", "The Fourth Wall", and the conclusion of the Island Adventures arc, there will be yet another petty jab toward the show's detractors, possibly by having Slade sic an army of angry fans who endlessly kvetch about how TTG is inferior to the original Teen Titans on the Titans.
- Insulting Big Hero 6 for "stealing" the concept of a team of young superheroes.
- Bonus points if they insult a Wasabi expy due to how the real one is voiced by Cyborg's voice actor for the show based on the source material.
- The Titans telling the audience to not watch Titans and saying that even though they haven't seen it themselves, they know it will be crappy because it isn't their incarnation of the characters.
- Calling the Arrowverse the lamest and one of the worst TV franchises because they don't get marathoned as much as their show is.
- Brushing off Incredibles 2 as a "warm up" before a "legit" superhero movie.
- Decrying stop-motion animation studios for putting too much effort into entertainment for stupid kids, and specifically citing Kubo and the Two Strings being a Box Office Bomb while flat out ignoring its status as an Acclaimed Flop.
- Not likely. The show's brand of parody tends to be of the shallow variety, and as such it's doubtful they'd reference such an obscure movie.
- Laughing at and mocking their contemporaries at Cartoon Network like Steven Universe and We Bare Bears, calling them lame and sappy for daring to have main characters who aren't Heroic Comedic Sociopaths.
- For bonus points, they'll mock other, more acclaimed CN shows on how TTG got a movie and they didn't.
- A group of people will complain endlessly about horrible things the Titans may do... only for none of that to happen by the end.
- A titanic jab towards other current animated superhero shows like Miraculous Ladybug or My Hero Academia for being entertaining to everyone.
- Robin showering Damian Wayne (more specifically his DC animated film counterpart) with praise for being an unlikable Jerkass just like them before realizing he Took a Level in Kindness and has fans, proceeding to insult them as well.
- A Take That! to Green Lantern: The Animated Series in which the characters will claim that most people only watch the show for Aya.
- Since the film is set in Hollywood, there will be a joke about Kevin Spacey trying to molest Beast Boy, only for him to turn into a porcupine in self defense.
- Or a general Dude, Not Funny! joke about the sex scandals that Hollywood has been hit with since 2017.
- Dissing Dreamworks Animation for trying to turn all their movies into franchises.
- All jossed.
- Beast Boy transforming into an obscure animal.
- Raven becomes very muscular again
- Bonus points if she once again dons the mantle of "Lady Legasus"
- Or alternatively, the Teen Titans will BECOME their former incarnations (or more modern day designed versions) in order to defeat Slade, who has beaten them so thoroughly that they realize they need to be real heroes if they want a chance of winning.
- Semi-confirmed. The Stinger has the 2003 Titans appear for a brief moment, stating that they may have found a way back. In the film proper, they still defeat Slade as themselves, just with a reprise of their theme song.
- Maybe. Warner Bros. DID send it in to the Academy, and it does look like one of DC's most popular films at the moment, so possibly.
- Confirmed, Jade Wilson is in fact Slade in disguise.
- Jossed. Rose is nowhere to be seen in the film.
(Jim raises his can for a toast)
Jim Gordon: Old friend.
(They clink their cans together. Cut to black the moment they hit. We hear Batman speak two words. Just two.)
Batman: Old chum.
- Nah. Still would've been cool, though.
- Bonus points if Terra and/or Rose appear while Slade does his evil speech to Robin, rolling their eyes and/or yawning at how cliché the whole scene is.
- Confirmed, in a sorta roundabout way. After he loses his crystal to the Titans, Slade starts to actively gun towards Robin's insecurities and even gets him brainwashed along with the other DC heroes this way.
- Jossed. TTG's fifth season started airing about a month before the movie's release.
- Jossed. The heroes are released from brainwashing once the Titans destroy the machine that's controlling them (except Robin, who is released through The Power of Friendship).
- Specifically, their overuse of the whole "seemingly-altruistic-side-character-was-the-villain-all-along" trope. Which is probably why The Reveal wasn't all that subtle.
- Part of his evil plan involves getting all the DC superheroes preoccupied with filming their own movies. To him, the goal wasn't necessarily to produce good films, the goal was to make sure the heroes are indisposed so he can carry out his plans unopposed. Correlate that with things like Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara's sticking to Justice League (2017)'s release date of November 2017 to the film's detriment, so he could have his one last bonus before stepping down, and this paints a pretty good picture.
