The DC Universe is expanding rapidly with live-action movies and comic books gaining success each year. But another aspect in which DC is excelling is their animated movies. With the announcement of Justice League Dark, which will release this year, we also have ‘Teen Titans: Judas Contract’ for our amusement.
Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have officially revealed the first look at their upcoming animated film Teen Titans: Judas Contract, including photos from the film and the full voice cast.
The ensemble voice cast will include actress Christina Ricci as Terra while actor Miguel Ferrer, who passed away recently, has given voice to villain Deathstroke. The cast also includes returning DC animation voice actors Sean Maher as Dick Grayson / Nightwing, Kari Wahlgren as Koriand’r / Starfire, Jake T. Austin as Jaime Reyes / Blue Beetle, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Brandon Soo Hoo as Garfield Logan / Beast Boy, and Stuart Allan as Damian Wayne / Robin.
Directed by Sam Liu (Justice League vs. Teen Titans) from a screenplay by Ernie Altbacker, the film adapts the classic comic from Marv Wolfman and George Perez. ‘The Judas Contract’ was a four-part storyline originally printed in issues #42-44 of Tales of the Teen Titans and concluded in the 1984 Tales of the Teen Titans Annual. The storyline was significant for several reasons. Firstly, it reveals the secret origin of Deathstroke, arguably the Titans’ most notorious adversary and also paved the way for Terra into the DC Universe. In addition, this storyline presents the first appearance of Dick Grayson under his new costume and code-name Nightwing. With the legacy of Robin forever behind him, he maintained the Nightwing identity until he became Batman for a brief period of time.
