The latest DC Comics-based animated feature is “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract,” which adapts Marv Wolfman and George Pérez’s 1984 storyline of the same name.
As DC fans know, “The Judas Contract” comics story centered on an earthquake-creating character named Terra, sent by Deathstroke to infiltrate the Titans. The animated adaptation follows that same premise, and Terra — along with Starfire, Beast Boy, Blue Beetle and Robin — is in action in this clip provided by Warner Home Video to CBR.
“It’s a classic story, it’s so massive and really changed the trajectory of DC Comics when it came out,” “Judas Contract” producer and DC animation veteran James Tucker said last week in a panel following the feature’s debut screening at WonderCon in Anaheim. “There’s a lot of history we had to honor when we adapted it.”
Christina Ricci makes her DC animated debut in “The Judas Contract” as the voice of Terra, along with the returning Jake T. Austin (Blue Beetle), Stuart Allan (Robin/Damian Wayne), Taissa Farmiga (Raven), Brandon Soo Hoo (Beast Boy), Kari Wahlgren (Starfire) and Sean Maher (Nightwing); each of whom (other than Ricci) appeared in last year’s “Justice League vs. Teen Titans.”
“Teen Titans: The Judas Contract” is available now via digital download, and DVD and Blu-ray on April 18.
