Zack Snyder has put his own gritty spin on the Teen Titans. It was announced in July that the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman director would be featured on Teen Titans Go! as himself. Now, the unexpected crossover has arrived. Teen Titans Go! recently reached its milestone 365th episode in its seventh season, appropriately titled "365!"

"365!" sees the young team of heroes go to the Warner Bros. lot looking for a director for their landmark episode. There, they come across Zack Snyder, who proceeds to give them a makeover, depicting Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg and Beast Boy in a dark and gritty animation style. 

The Titans face Darkseid and the forces of Apokolips in a scene reminiscent of Justice League's flashback battle between the villain and humankind's united forces. Clips from the sequence have been shared on Twitter, which also show Snyder poking fun at himself and his signature visual flair.

The animation is somewhat reminiscent of Young Justice's and the style used in different DC Animated Movie Universe projects, such as Justice League vs. Teen Titans. Hilariously enough, though, while the character designs are completely different from those of Teen Titans Go!, the heroes retain their youthful and purposefully overly animated voices. 

Aside from that, the episode also featured various callbacks to Snyder's body of work (as shown in the video below). At one point, for example, Robin is shown stopping a flood with his staff just like Aquaman did in Justice League. Another scene showed Starfire helping Robin in slow motion, based on how Flash helped Wonder Woman in the aforementioned film. 

#RestoreTheSnyderVerse Lives Again

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Snyder's Teen Titans Go! appearance prompted the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse movement to pop back up on social media. The hashtag began trending once again at the time of the episode's release (via CBR), something that has happened various times since before and after the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League in March 2021: 

As for how Snyder's appearance on Teen Titans Go! came to be, there's an interesting story behind it. During an interview with CBR, Beast Boy voice actor Greg Cipes revealed that the director watches the series: "He's a fan of the show, yo." 

Teen Titans Go! director Peter Michail elaborated, stating: "We reached out and pitched him the idea. He loved it and was actually a fan [of] the show. It was surprisingly very easy. It was, and he was great! It was an incredible experience, and we're honored to have him as a part of the 'Teen Titans Go!' world, for sure."

Teen Titans Go! is confirmed to be coming back for an eigth season, making it one of DC's longest-running animated series.

@GhostDog - Like jesus, I don't know whats more pathetic: Teen Titans go licking Snyders balls, or Snyder needing his balls licked by Teen Titans Go of all shows. That aside, ypu can tell its not actually made by Zack Snyder because Beast Boy is having fun, and there's enough color to tell his skin is green.

Ray Fisher’s career?

Also, lest we forget the hypocrisy:

@DrReedRichards - haha... irony is amazing.

@Itwasme -

Funny how karma works, isn't it? Zack takes a jab at cartoons, and now his cult cling on to them for relevance. They troll their way into getting from the Academy the award for Ezra's cheer moment (my ass), only to now have Ezra be exposed as a self-proclaimed messiah and whatnot.

Gotta love how the universe puts everything in its place.

@DrReedRichards - the karma of the DCEU. It's like the mirror dimension, but moody and dull.

Never saw that tweet

My god😬

The cringe is strong🥲

Gets even stronger when you realize that it only ever held any ground for being "differrent".

@DrReedRichards - Ha ha, Scott Mendelssohn is literally the only critic outside of reviews here that I read. So this is especially hilarious to me
DrReedRichards - 9/20/2022, 3:46 AM
@TheWalkingCuban -

I have to say, I don't particularly have any strong feelings about Mendelson one way or another, but anything that irks Snyder is music to my ears.

@DrReedRichards - hahaha nice

Oh look. The primary person responsible for the DCEU’s failure!
colonel179 - 9/20/2022, 12:28 AM
@mountainman - The primary reason of DCEU failure is the executives who wanted to copy MCU. They still try to copy it and fail. The few projects that are good still has Snyder’s inspiration. They can’t get rid of it because people liked it specially after Justice League. The DCEU would have been fine if they let Zack do his job. After all, by this time that they are trying to fix all this messC they would already be able to reset everything organically and people would be all over it even more so than the MCU.

So awesome! Haha I know the snyderverse is dead but it would be cool to see an animated series finish the story.

the man who cast a flash who would be a terible choice even if he wasnt a pedophile

also cast a talentless gold digging domestic abuser

so many of dc's current problem can be traced back to him

Where are all the people that praise Snyder for his casting? They are very silent when it comes to the child groomer known as Ezra 😬

@AmazingFILMporg - I love Cavill as Superman. Its probably my favorite super hero movie (until I watch Batman Begins for the 1000th time). I like Ben as Batman, Russell Crowe owned it as Jor-El. Michael Shannon as Zod was fantastic. Gal won me over as Wonder Woman but I kinda would have liked to see Olga in the role. Jesse played a pretty good Golden Age Lex but probably was not what the fans wanted to see.
