DC Entertainment has released the first trailer for "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract," the anticipated animated feature inspired by the classic comic book storyline by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. The trailer not only introduces us to the team and lays out the film's basic storyline -- Brother Blood hires Deathstroke to kidnap the Titans and deliver them to him -- it also reveals that the movie will be released with a PG-13 rating.
Unfolding in “Tales of the Teen Titans” #42-44 and the Annual #3, “The Judas Contract” brought together long-brewing threads involving Deathstroke’s contract to deliver the Titans to the villainous organization H.I.V.E., and the betrayal of the team by new member Terra, who was working with the mercenary from the very beginning. The arc also marked the debut of Dick Grayson as Nightwing.
The acclaimed storyline has had far-reaching influence, with the ramifications of the events in “The Judas Contract” playing out in subsequent comic books, and inspiring an arc of the “Teen Titans” animated series.
Directed by Sam Liu (“Justice League vs. Teen Titans”) from a script by Ernie Altbacker, “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract” will feature Christina Ricci as Terra and Miguel Ferrer as Deathstroke. They join a voice cast that includes Sean Maher, Kari Wahlgren, Jake T. Austin, Taissa Farmiga, Brandon Soo Hoo and Stuart Allan.
