If you were a child in the 1990s, like myself, then so much of what informed our shared experience of the DC Universe came from the animated cartoons. For me, personally, this led to my ever-lasting affection for the character of Robin (the Tim Drake version, specifically), and when Justice League debuted I was given my first real and meaningful incarnation of Princess Diana of Themyscira a.k.a. Wonder Woman.
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.

Bruce Timm makes his dramatic return to the world of DC Animation this week with the original movie, Justice League: Gods and Monsters. Set in an alternate universe designed from the ground up by Timm, Alan Burnett and the rest of the creative team, it’s a dark, but very compelling reimagining of comics’ premiere super hero team and one of the most original and exciting DC animated movies to date.
The thing about animated movies: you get ONE take on your new world. And you make it rich and varied and exciting, but it's two hours long, so all these great ideas you have just don't fit.
