The egocentric heroes at the center of Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! will be faced with their ultimate nemesis, Slade. Arnet is also the producer. This summer flick is a spin off of the animated series, TTG!TTM. The film follows Robin (Scott Menville), Starfire (Hynden Walch), Cyborg (Khary Payton), Raven (Tara Strong), and Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) as they travel to Hollywood in search of movie stardom. Slade is a longtime nemesis of the Teen Titans and is an integral part of the story with regards to the Teen Titans trying to get their movie.
Arnet first took on the role of producer before playing Slade. Arnet was a fan because of the show because of his kids, and he wanted to meet the creative team so he got in touch with them at Warner Bros. At that point the movie had no script or anything. When Slade appeared in the script they had this great idea of me playing the role.
Teen Titans Go! To the Movies opens in theaters July 27.
