    Ricci and Ferrer are newcomers to the stable of the DC animated movies, a line that celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Titans will also see returning DC players Sean Maher, Kari Wahlgren, Jake T. Austin, Taissa Farmiga, Brandon Soo Hoo and Stuart Allan join the voice cast.

    New Teen Titans Judas Contract Special Feature Update

    Last week George Pérez and I met in Burbank to talk about the making of The New Titans' "Judas Contract" four part story. They filmed us for nearly 5 hours talking about how we put it together and what it meant to us. After our conversation, George did a solo interview while I head over to DC and then back home. Yesterday, I returned to Burbank for my solo interview, talking not only about the Judas Contract, but also Terra as well as a separate interview about Deathstroke. I'm not sure where all of this is going to appear, but most of it will be on the DVD/Blu Ray for the Judas Contract animated movie which I think comes out sometime this summer.

    Please note I haven't seen the movie or know anything about it (so don't bother fishing for info) but George and I were certainly capable of talking about the making of the original comic. Hope you like it when you see it. By the way, George and I will coincidentally be at several cons together this coming year. The first of which is in Los Angeles the beginning of January, but we have many others, too. I'll announce all cons before they happen.

    This past Wednesday I drove down to Studio City in LA and got together with pal/co-creator/brilliant artist and all around great guy, George Pérez, to discuss the making of our "The Judas Contract" comic stories. Our conversation was filmed and yes, you can be a fly on the wall and see it, I believe, as an extra on the upcoming animated film's Blu-Ray/DVD, although it might pop up in other places, too.

    We've been reporting this animated adaption since 2006 ... well it's finally coming out - as announced at the San Diego Comic-Con during the Batman: The Killing Joke panel.

    Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is Getting an Animated Movie

     By Tim Beedle Friday, July 22nd, 2016

    It’s long been discussed, but it’s now officially confirmed. TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT, the popular New Teen Titans storyline by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, will be adapted into a feature length animated film in 2017.

    Revealed during tonight’s packed Batman: The Killing Joke World Premiere panel, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract was announced alongside two other intriguing-sounding DC Universe Original Movies slotted for next year.

    First out of the gate will be Justice League Dark, an adaptation of the popular comic book series that will bring John Constantine to the world of animation for the first time in a supernatural story that promises plenty of mystery and thrills, along with an amazing voice cast. While Constantine’s world of demons and magic are an important part of the DC Universe, it’s been largely unexplored in DC’s connected universe of animated movies until now.

    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. “The Judas Contract” was one of the most popular comic book storylines of its year and is continually ranked among the greatest Teen Titans stories ever told.

    Finally, the 2017 lineup of DC Universe Original Movies concludes with Batman and Harley Quinn, a brand new, wholly original story from DC animation legend Bruce Timm. The storyline for this one is tightly under wraps, but considering Timm’s beloved style and complete understanding of both these classic characters, fans can expect this movie to be the talk of next summer.

    So what do you think, Titans fans? Are you excited to finally see “The Judas Contract” brought to animation? Which of these three films are you most intrigued by? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to keep your eye here on all weekend long for DC news as it breaks.

    Making Sense of DC's Film Projects (or trying to)

    By Mike Doran and Albert Ching
    posted: 2008-08-28 15:07:00 ET

    A common complaint, fair or not, among comic book fans is that DC Comics are more confusing than Marvel Comics.


    Without indulging that argument, it’s undeniable that at the moment the upcoming slate of Marvel Studios films is much, much less complicated than Warner Bros. films based on the “distinguished competition” currently in development. Since May and Iron Man’s nearly-$100 million opening weekend, Marvel Studio’s schedule has been nice and tidy - Iron Man 2 and Thor in 2010, Captain America and Avengers in 2011, with films like Runaways andAnt-Man also in the mix.


    Teen Titans

    Okay, if Warner Bros. has decided to build a Justice League movie from solo movies on up, what does this mean for the Teen Titans movie, announced in May of 2007?

    Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster were attached as producers through their Weed Road banner, and Mark Verheiden was attached to write the script. As recently as April of this year, Verheiden spoke about the project in the present tense, in fact, describing it as "back on". The writer revealed he had turned in a draft to Warner Bros., which would feature Nightwing and Robin, would be very faithful to the Marv Wolfman/George Perez iconic run of the comic book, and described Warner Bros. as "absolutely committed" to doing the movie.

    Warner Bros. Developing 'Teen Titans' Comic 
    Posted May 31st 2007 1:01PM by Christopher Campbell


    For anyone disappointed that Robin has been left out of the recent Batman films (I hope you are few), there is good news: Warner Bros. is developing a movie version of the DC comic Teen Titans. Robin is one of the original members of the young super team, and though he has not always been part of the group, it is certainly a possibility that he'll make it into the movie -- if only because of his familiarity to mainstream audiences. The Hollywood Reporter does report that Nightwing, a character who is sort of like an alternative version of Robin (he is the older incarnation of the original Robin, Dick Grayson), is already a definite character. However, because the continuities of DC Comics confuse the dickens out of me, I really have no idea if Nightwing and (the more-recognizable) Robin could both be a part of the movie's team.

    NRAMA: Are you still working on the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract cartoon?

    MW: I just finished it.


    NRAMA: Do you suspect it will be less anime influenced?

    MW: I don't believe art designs have been done but what I've always been told was that this was going to be done straight. But I loved the Cartoon Network version of �The Judas Contract�. I thought for a show aimed at eight year olds, they did a story that an adult could watch and not at all be insulted by. We are aiming for a PG-13 audience so hopefully we're going to be able to do all the emotion that they did and more, but also make it closer to the original comic.

    NRAMA: Is George Perez involved in any capacity?

    MW: He was originally going to be art designer for it but he is so busy that he's not going to be able to. But I believe we're still going to be using his design from the comic as the basis.

    There's some good news afoot for Teen Titans fans, but it depends on your point of view. As a fan of the TV cartoon rather than a comics aficionado, I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I really loved Trouble in Tokyo and would be happy for a who slew of Titans movies in the same vein. It's great entertainment for the whole family. On the other hand, I'm intrigued.

    Oh, Toy Box Mommy, you are saying. What in the world are you talking about??

    Whoops. Would that be helpful to this discussion? I bet it would. My bad.

    Written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto; executive produced by Sander Schwartz and Gregory Noveck

    For everyone who was a fan of the hit Cartoon Network series, this is not for you. For everyone who liked the show but wondered where characters like Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and others were in the original cartoon, this is more up your alley.

    Based on the story written by Marv Wolfman and George perez, Teen Titans villain Destroke the Terminator sends a spychopathic metahuman named Terra to infiltrate the team to gain access to their secret identities so he can capture them.

    "I love the original story," explains Wolfman. "This is one of several Titans stories we did early on that deserves to be a movie."

    Wolfman admitted to having a fondness for hte original Dethstroke stories, the Terror of Trigon and the Titans story set on Starfire's home world.

    Co-writing and Wolfman will be Tom DeSanto, producer on the "X-Men" and upcoming "Transformers" films. Perez will contirbute all-new character designs, and the team will feature the classic lineup of Wonder Girl, Changeling, Cyborg, Raven and Dick Grayson, who will make the transition from Robin to Nightwing.

    In the meantime, it looks like this version of the Titans will be going on vacation with Murakami. When asked about their future he said there may be some possibilities of more DVD movies, but nothing is certain. He also isn't likely to work on the upcoming Judas Contract DVDheaded by Bruce Timm.

    "That's a difficult question to answer," he admits. "I really like what we did with the Titans, I always say that we combined the Bob Haney/Nick Cardy version with the Marv Wolfman/George Perez Titans. I worked so hard to create a different version of the Titans I might not be the right choice to work on the Judas Contract.

    "[Besides] I think the fans want a 'faithful' interpretation of the Judas Contract. I think a lot of the die-hard fans felt our series was too Anime or skewed too young. I understand how they feel about the show but we were trying to appeal to a younger audience. I grew up reading the Wolfman and Perez Titans so I understand what they want."

    According to coverage here at CBR, DC's launching a slate of projects as DVD animated features, much like "Ultimate Avengers," the first of which will be a "New Frontier" movie based on Darwyn Cooke's 2003-04 story. Future films include an abridged "Death of Superman" story featuring Doomsday and "The Judas Contract," based on the classic Marv Wolfman/George Perez "New Teen Titans" epic storyline. Each of the films will emulate the art style of the comic books they're based on.

Future films include an abridged "Death of Superman" story featuring Doomsday and "The Judas Contract," based on the classic Marv Wolfman/George Perez "New Teen Titans" epic storyline. Each of the films will emulate the art style of the comic books they're based on.

    When asked by a fan if Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Returns" might receive the animated treatment, Levitz said it's possible, but would "depend on Miller's schedule." Miller is currently in pre-production for "Sin City 2," which he will follow up by writing and directing a film based on Will Eisner's "The Spirit."

    �The Judas Contract movie will be closer to the original comic than even the show [Teen Titans] was, and the show was very faithful to the spirit of the original,� Wolfman told Newsarama, asked how the movie will be different from DC animation series in the past. �I loved what they did but I'm hoping we can be more adult in the handling of this story.

    �Whereas the Titans cartoon show was obviously aimed for kids, this is not being aimed at the youngest kids as it will contain mature content. It will be closer to the original comic but hopefully even stronger as we'll have actors, which means we'll be able to do some more subtle material. In comics you have to make readers read the dialogue as you want them to, but of course that's impossible. Here we can have those little verbal moments where a simple �grunt� or �sigh� or sound can replace paragraphs of prose. Because it's a different medium, we alter the way we tell our stories, playing to this medium's strengths as George and I tried to do with the original, playing to the strength of comics.�

    �And yes,� Wolfman added, �Tom [DeSanto] and I intend for the �nightgown and cigarette" scene to be there.�

    Teen Titans: Written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto, with input from George Perez, this film focuses on the '80s version of the Titans. Though the specific storyline was not confirmed, DC used the cover of the Judas Contract (one of the best Titans tales of all time) during the announcement.

    "This is just the beginning," Levitz assured. In fact, DC want to hear from the fans as to what stories they'd like to see. Levitz stressed that the series was for the fans and would retain the core essence and look of the original tales. The audience shouted a number of possible stories. One, however, earned a promising response from Levitz. "The Dark Knight [Returns], we have talked about."

    The voice talent has not been finalized for these films. DC is not yet certain if the same actors will carry over in the same roles from one film to the next.

    As DC Publisher and President Paul Levitz announced at Saturday's DC: One Year Greater panel, DC and Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video are looking to enter the direct to video marketplace in a big way, with three upcoming animated movies: New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, Superman/Doomsday, and The New Frontier.

    Bruce Timm will oversee the projects, and each will be faithful adaptations of the original stories, carrying over the stories as well as the art styles from the comics. As such, Darwyn Cooke, Marv Wolfman and George Perez were all announced as helping with the adaptations.

    Shortly after the announcement, we sat down with Levitz to talk about the new deal, and learn a little more about the larger picture.


    NRAMA: In that vein, as you said at the panel, the different features will be similar in style to the art that's in the original comics? 
    Paul Levitz: That's the goal, and it's certainly the reason to have George and Darwyn involved. With New Frontier, Darwyn's an animator by trade, so like Marv on Titans, he brings with him a very powerful knowledge of how to translate his own work. Animation's not the same thing as comics, so there are certain translations to be made, but I think you will feel the richness of Darwyn's work come through.

    ...The third title in the series will be an animated version of the classic story Teen Titans story �The Judas Contract�, written by Marv Wolfman. Tom DeStano (X-Men) will join Wolfman as co-writer and producer on the film.

    "This is just the beginning," Levitz said. "We're sitting around and thinking of send all your suggestions in."

    Levitz also added that George Perez will be working on the animated Judas Contract as well, and that Bruce Timm will be overseeing all the animated films.

    "We�re looking at more than the last five minutes of history," Levitz said in regards to what will differentiate this from movies such asUltimate Avengers.
