Several years ago we were told the classic Teen Titans: The Judas Contract would be adapted into a Warner Bros. animated movie. The flick was pushed to the back burner, but now, it’s happening, and on the way in 2017.
During the highly contentious Batman: The Killing Joke panel, it was announced The Judas Contract would finally get the animated treatment in the Spring of 2017.
According to ComingSoon.net it will be a follow up to last year’s Justice League vs. Teen Titans, which means Damian Wayne will somehow be a part of the movie (SAD FACE EMOJI).
They were Earth’s teenage defenders — unbeatable and unstoppable. Riding high, they took an eighth member — a young girl — into their ranks.She was their downfall.In the ’80s, THE NEW TEEN TITANS was DC’s most popular title and a huge sales success. The series reached a high point with the multi-part storyline now reprinted in this new edition featuring the epic that played on comics readers’ expectations and offered shocking revelations and surprising twists at every turn. Included are THE NEW TEEN TITANS (Volume One) #39 and 40, TALES OF THE TEEN TITANS #41-44 and ANNUAL #3. THE JUDAS CONTRACT is by the fan-favorite team of writer Marv Wolfman (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS) & penciller and cover artist George Pérez (Avengers, WONDER WOMAN), with inkers Dick Giordano, Mike DeCarlo and Romeo Tanghal. From the retirement of Robin and Kid Flash, to the birth of Nightwing and the introduction of Jericho, to the ultimate betrayal of a Titan — “The Judas Contract” kept readers positively riveted during its initial run and still has fans talking today.
There was a version of The Judas Contract told during the second season arc of Teen Titans in 2004.
Before we get The Judas Contract, we’ll first be treated to an adaptation of Justice League Dark – but not the Justice League Dark movie that Guillermo Del Toro wanted to do back in 2013. It will however mean we will get to see John Constantine for the first time in the DC Animated Universe.
Finally, in the summer of 2017, we’ll get an original movie, not based on a comic book series, Batman and Harley Quinn. This movie is being developed and written by Bruce Timm, and considering he created the character with Paul Dini, I expect this to blow our minds.
I will still see The Killing Joke when it arrives next week via On Demand services, but considering the severe backlash the film is receiving for the updated relationship between Batman and Batgirl, it might be more shocking to watch than I originally anticipated.
