DC Entertainment has finally released its first trailer for Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. It looks like the studio is on a mission to appeal to new audience as well as longtime comic book readers. Nightwing will likely play a prominent role in the animated feature film as well.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is an animated feature film based on a 1980’s comic book written by Marv Wolfman. The issue is quite known among comic readers as it features a cold betrayal among the Teen Titans, changing the course of DC Comics. But IGN reported that the upcoming movie won’t fully adapt the comics as it is a sequel to the 2016’s DTV Justice League vs. Teen Titans.
Deathstroke Fights Nightwing
The first footage revealed that a secret organization called H.I.V.E is the main cause of chaos in the movie. Furthermore, Deathstroke (villain) is hired by the organization and put on a contract to capture the Teen Titans. But The Terminator (villain’s alias) also goes up against other young superheroes such as Nightwing.
Robin, Starfire, Blue Beetle, Beast Boy, Terra and Raven are shown fighting against forces, presumably working for the H.I.V.E. Blue Beetle also seems to have been captured by the organization. But going by his dialogue, the Teen Titans already seem to be in control of the situation.
Blue Beetle Is Cyborg’s Replacement In Teen Titans: The Judas Contract
The trailer concluded as Nightwing mockingly questioned Robin whether he “ever gets outta that uniform.” Looks like Damian Wayne (Real name) is not willing to compromise his identity, as he removed his costume only for bathing. The footage is embedded below.
Blue Beetle was earlier introduced and established in Young Justice TV series. Since then, the character has been reprised to appear in 2016’s Teen Titans vs. Justice League. But Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will originally bring him in as a new addition to the team.
In the 1980’s comics, Cyborg was part of the Teen Titans. But the character has now been recruited by the Justice League. It looks like Blue Beetle will be his replacement in the teen team.
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract was first announced to be part of the DC animated movie lineup in 2007. However, it suffered delays, as the studio decided to establish other famous DC superheroes, Collider reported. The movie is one of the most anticipated titles among longtime comic book fans.
