WATCH: Zack Snyder cameo brings the Knightmare world to Teen Titans GO! and it’s awesome

September 19th, 2022 by Marc Comments

You’ll remember that in July, during SDCC, we reported that Man of Steel, Batman V Superman and Zack Snyder’s Justice League director Zack Snyder was set to jump back into the DC universe with Teen Titans Go! (here).

The episode aired over the weekend and really got Snyder’s fans – and yes, we count ourselves among them but not militantly so – into a bit of a frenzy as not only did he appear but we also saw the Titans in the Knightmare reality from Snyder’s now-canceled DCEU movies.

The appearance marked Teen Titans Go!’s 365th episode and aired on September 16th – you can see Snyder’s appearance below.

It’s unlikely that the appearance was anything more than just a fun cameo but Twitter saw a burst of #RestoreTheSnyderVerse over the weekend and, if nothing else, it’s keeping the dream alive.

What was very cool though was seeing that world in animated form and the hope that, while it’s very unlikely we’ll ever see the Knightmare storyline wrapped on the big screen, we may perhaps see an animated version some day.

Mind you, to be honest, while it wasn’t the best-received animated movie in the series Justice League Dark: Apokolips War comes pretty close to showing us just how bad the Knightmare world could be, so maybe check that out but be warned, it’s not for the faint-of-heart or kids.

Oh, and some fans pointed out that the adult Robin seen in the Knightmare sequence is wearing a suit that’s quite similar to the Robin suit glimpsed in Batman V Superman, left. I’m not entirely convinced of this, after all, in the Snyderverse, that particular Robin is dead by the Knightmare point in the story but it’s still a nice nod to the source material.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
