Titans Together! The team is set to reunite in an effort to take on their greatest foe: one of their own. A new animated film will soon be released chronicling one of the most infamous story lines of the Titans publication history. In the film, the Titans work to take down Brother Blood and the H.I.V.E., they soon find they are being targeted by Deathstroke and he’s not working alone and is getting help from someone on the inside.
The new film is set in the new animated DC Universe which is based on the characters from their New 52 origins but still remain faithful to the characters origins. The cast includes Stuart Allan (Robin), Brandon Soo Hoo (Beast Boy), Sean Maher (Nightwing), Jake T. Austin (Blue Bettle, Kari Wahlgren (Starfire), Taissa Farmiga (Raven), Christina Ricci (Terra) and Gregg Henry (Brother Blood). The film will also be the last performance of Miguel Ferrer (Deathstroke) after his death from cancer earlier this year.
Saying this production took a long time is an understatement. The Judas Contract was originally supposed to be the third DC animated movie to be released in the continuous stream of films the Warner Brothers Animation has produced. Details of it were released back in 2006. Many fans had given up hope they would ever get a chance to see the movie ever get made. For those who did wait, they may not even be as excited as it will follow the new animated DC Universe format instead of sharing any similarity to beloved Teen Titans TV series which aired on Cartoon Network. Of course after the more comical in tone Teen Titans Go!, even more have given up hope of their ever being more of the Teen Titans they know and love.
