TV & FILM

WB may not be all that adept at cranking out big budget superhero films that aren't completely problematic, but their animated meta-takedowns of superhero movies are going strong thanks to last year's LEGO Batman Movie and this summer's Teen Titans GO! to the Movies. Both films have gotten an incredible amount of mileage out of making fun of their own in-house properties, and this new trailer for the latter proves that the creators of this film have mercilessness on their minds.
Best of all, this new trailer finally gives us our first clip of Nic Cage's Superman in action, and while it's not super Cagey, it's got potential to get nuts, especially if he keeps setting up perfect shots for Cyborg and Beast Boy to spike home. Honestly, even if you don't like the show or don't see how they could stretch the conceit out to feature length, at least it's upfront about how dumb it is, unlike most of DC's other film properties. That's gotta count for something.
We're now in the Countdown to Cage-El, and there's only 86 days left before we can walk into a movie theater, purchase a ticket for Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, and finally see Nicolas Cage play Superman. What a time to be alive!
