At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that one of the 2017 animated films for the DC Universe would be Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. The film, which is a sequel to Justice League vs. Teen Titans, is being inspired by the comic of the same name from Marv Wolfman and with art by George Perez.
Today The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Christina Ricci (The Addams Family) and Miguel Ferrer (NCIS: Los Angeles) have joined the cast of the animated film, directed by DC anime director Jay Oliva. Ricci will be playing the DC Comics character Terra, a beloved member of the group. Ferrer will take on the role of Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke the Terminator.
Sean Maher, Stuart Allan, Kari Wahlgren, Taissa Farmiga, Jake T. Austin and Brandon Soo Hoo are all returning as Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing, Damian Wayne a.k.a Robin, Starfire, Raven, Jaime Reyes a.k.a. Blue Beetle and Garfield Logan a.k.a. Beast Boy, respectively. Two photos were also released along with the announcement, featuring our first look at Terra and Deathstroke.
“Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will follow in the spring and will serve as something of a follow-up to last year’s Justice League vs. Teen Titans. “The Judas Contract” debuted in 1984 in the pages of New Teen Titans, when the Titans’ comic book popularity was at its height. Written by Wolfman and drawn by Perez, it introduced the perhaps not-to-be-trusted Terra to the Teen Titans and was the storyline in which Dick Grayson first adopted the identity of Nightwing.”
Jay Oliva’s Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, written by Ernie Altbacker, is set to come out sometime this spring.
