Wait, WHO is playing Batman in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies!?

May 3rd, 2018 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

We know you are all excited of the up coming Teen Titans Go! To The Movies movie, we most
certainly are but one thing that has been bugging us here at FTN is the question of who will voice

Check out the hilarious trailer here

Will it be someone cool like Idris Elba? Someone A-List like Leo Di Caprio? Someone
unexpected like Robert Downey Jr? Or someone with nerd bone fides like Nathan Fillion?

NO! it’s Jimmy Kimmel.

That’s right, Jimmy Kimmel is going to be Batman and you’re not. It’s not fair. Seriously it’s not fair, what has Jimmy Kimmel ever done to deserve to play Batman more than anyone else in the world? Nothing.

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies has put together an impressive cast: Kimmel aside, Nic Cage finally gets
to play Superman, and Halsey as Wonder Woman sounds great. If you miss Arnett’s voice in the DC
universe, don’t be fooled by today’s casting announcement. Arnett may not be playing the role of
Batman in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies but he does get to play the villain Slade Wilson, the Teen
Titans’ most nefarious villain from the original animated series.

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!

Will Arnett (“The LEGO® Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) lend their voices to the first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show, which also stars Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series.

The film is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC.  Michail, Will Arnett and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic, and Horvath serving as executive producers.  Apart from Arnett, all are “Teen Titans GO!” series contributors.

PS if you reverse the first two letter of Jimmy Kimmel’s names he’d be called Kimmy Jimmel
