Wondercon has come to mark an exciting time for DC animated movie fans, especially if your superhero team-up of choice is the Teen Titans. 2016’s Wondercon event saw the world premiere of the first time the Teen Titans would appear in the DC animated movie verse in “Justice League vs. Teen Titans” and now 2017 welcomes the 2nd. Comic fans can flock to the Anaheim Convention Center’s Arena to be a part of the first screening of “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”, the second Teen Titans centric movie, on April 1st, 2017. Based loosely on a popular storyline from 1984 of the same name, the Judas Contract arc penned by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, the new sequel brings back the crew from the first movie and explores both expansion of that team and introduces some of the most famous big bads the Titans face.
“Teen Titans: The Judas Contract finds the Teen Titans—Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin, and the just-returned Nightwing—working as a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil. But their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows—both waiting to pounce. ”
The voice cast for the Titans from “Justice League vs. Teen Titans” returns for this second movie, bringing back Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire, Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood) as Nightwing, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Raven, Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder) as Beast Boy, and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian.
New faces include Christina Ricci (Zelda, Sleepy Hollow, The Addams Family) as Terra, Miguel Ferrer (NCIS: Los Angeles, RoboCop, Crossing Jordan) as Deathstroke, and Gregg Henry (Scandal, The Killing, Payback) to voice Brother Blood.
As a former kid who never missed an episode of the animated Teen Titans show and subsequently picked up as many comics books featuring those characters as she possibly could, I’m absolutely thrilled to join other fans for the World Premiere at Wondercon. I’m also generally terrified of Brother Blood (when he’s not being absurd), so this story should be a fun one to experience. So if you’re attending Wondercon 2017 in Anaheim, CA, join TT fans for the World Premiere of “Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”.
