However, arguably the most hilarious thing about the trailer is that the Justice League acts as the contest’s judges. Wonder Woman can be seen blowing a kiss towards the audience and Superman, who was voiced by Nicholas Cage in Teen Titans Go! At the movie theater, winks at the camera. While Cage is unlikely to return for this special, it’s a lot of fun to see his version of Superman again.

See Space Jam. While the slam dunk contest itself was last night, it will be really fun to see how our favorite teenage hero squad tackles the event in their usual brand of silly comedy and it looks very similar to how Nickelodeon covered the NFL the last couple of years with its loads of colorful animations.
