Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Trailer Unleashes Deathstroke

The first trailer for the highly-anticipated animated adaptation Teen Titans: The Judas Contract has finally been released, and it was worth the wait! In this slightly grown-up version of the fan-favorite Teen Titans, the heroes take on not just Deathstroke the Terminator, but also the organization known as H.I.V.E. The trailer shows a lot of footage that are pulled from the comic books, so it looks like fans of the original DC comics would love this adaptation. Watch the trailer below:


The DC Universe Animated Original Movie stars Christina Ricci and the late Miguel Ferrer as Terra and Deathstroke, and it's directed by DC movie veteran Sam Liu (Justice League vs Teen TitansBatman: The Killing Joke). The film also stars Sean Maher as Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Kari Wahlgren as Starfire, Jake T. Austin Blue Beetle, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Brandon Soo Hoo as Beast Boy, and Stuart Allan as Robin. 

Writer Marv Wolvman and penciller George Perez's The Judas Contract was originally printed as a four-part storyline that concluded in 1984, and it saw the teen heroes being betrayed by one of their own, who had secretly teamed up with the mercenary Deathstroke in order to take the team down.
