Static Shock

Static Shock: The Complete Fourth Season is available to own from Warner Archive, and can be purchased through the label and WBShop.com, along with other select retailers. Warner Archive describes the release as follows:

Static Shock: The Complete Fourth Season DVD
Static Shock‘s fourth and final season cements Static’s arrival as an A-list super hero, thanks to a Bat-charged flash-forward that sees Static (voiced by Phil LaMarr) bounce from the present-era Bruce Wayne/Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy) to Batman Beyond’s Terry McGinnis (voiced by Will Friedle) and a glimpse at his own future self. After confronting the future’s incarnation of Kobra (voiced by Lance Henriksen), Virgil returns to Dakota City in the present, where he and Gear (voiced by Jason Marsden) tackle faux Bang Baby wannabe hero She-Bang, assist African hero Anansi and try to take down Static’s idol, Green Lantern (also voiced by LaMarr). It all comes to a head when a cure is discovered for the Bang Babies – a cure that threatens Gear’s and Static’s abilities as well! This collection also includes the Justice League Unlimited two-part episode “The Once and Future Thing” (Part One, Part Two), which follows up on elements from Static Shock’s time-bending season opener.

Warner Bros. Pictures Releases Official “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies” Trailer

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first theatrical trailer for the upcoming Teen Titans Go! To The Movies animated movie, a feature-length comedy based on the top-rated Teen Titans Go! Cartoon Network series. A teaser trailer was released back in January. The movie will hit theatres everywhere on July 27, 2018. Check out the theatrical trailer in the player below, followed by the film’s official synopsis.

Warner Bros. describes Teen Titans Go! To The Movies as follows:

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 super hero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major super heroes 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. Set to release on July 27, 2018, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Teen Titans Go! airs on Cartoon Network multiple times during the week. Stay tuned for select further coverage of Teen Titans Go! in the coming months right here at The World’s Finest.
