Teen Titans Go! is one of the most frenetic takes on the superhero genre. Being especially popular with children the animated show has finally moved onto the big screen, and we spoke to one of the most talented actors around about his role in the movie.
James Kleinmann is our man in the US of A, and he sat down with Will Arnett to take about passing the vocal torch of Batman to Late Night talk show man Jimmy Kimmel, and how his kids got him into the animated Teen Titans Go! show. He also talks about how the big screen superhero genre has evolved and started making fun of itself and how he played the villain Slade in a three dimensional realm.
Arnett also talks about helping Nicolas Cage finally play Superman…
He also gives us a great “Hey You Guys!” so that’s very cool indeed. Here’s the interview:
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies Official Synopsis
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.
It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
