Ahead of the home video release tomorrow, Warner Bros. Animation has released a new clip of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, in which Robin faces off against Deathstroke.
While movie fans are still looking forward to seeing Deathstroke in live action for the first time in The Batman, anyone who's been paying attention to the DC animated features knows we've already seen Damien Wayne and Slade Wilson do battle before -- in Son of Batman.
Inspired by the 1984 comic book storyline by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract features the Titans introduced already into the DC Animated Universe, Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin, and Nightwing, as they go up against two of their most infamous enemies and pick up an ally who isn't all she seems along the way. The film uses both the original Judas Contract storyline and a story from the same run of comics to bring both Brother Blood and Deathstroke to fight against the Teen Titans in one film.
"Christina Ricci (Zelda, Sleepy Hollow, The Addams Family) and the late Miguel Ferrer (NCIS: Los Angeles, RoboCop, Crossing Jordan) join the already established Teen Titans voice cast as Terra and Deathstroke, respectively. Returning Titans actors include Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood) as Nightwing, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Raven, Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy, Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire, and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian. Gregg Henry (Scandal, The Killing, Payback) voices the villainous Brother Blood."
Other actors and characters joining the cast include Meg Foster as Mother Mayhem, Crispin Freeman as Speedy, Masasa Moyo as Bumblebee, and Jason Spisak as Kid Flash, returning to the role he performed in the fan-favorite Young Justice series.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is directed by Sam Liu, written by Ernie Altbacker, and produced by EP Sam Register, Supervising Producer James Tucker, and co-Producer Alan Burnett. The full list of special features includes a first look at the next film Batman and Harley Quinn, a look back at Wolfman and Perez's acclaimed run on the comic, and a featurette on Deathstroke.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract comes to DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, April 18, 2017. You can stream it now on various video-on-demand services.
