After years of being in limbo, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is finally being adapted as an animated feature. Yes, it'll be a loose adaptation apparently given Robin (Damian Wayne) and Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) are in this and this is a continuation of the New 52 animated movies.
BUT... if this new clip from the movie shows us anything. It's that the movie will contain homages to the glorious Teen Titans run by Marv Wolfram and George Perez (courtesy via Cosmic Book News).
Yes, for those wondering that was Masasa Moyo, Crispin Freeman and Jason Spisak reprising their roles as Bumblebee, Speedy, and Kid Flash from Young Justice. Is this movie just a freaking test run to get those three back in the mood of their previous roles? Or is this little nugget a bone thrown to long-suffering Young Justice fans?
We already know the key cast, but we also know the full cast now too. Besides those Young Justice alum reprising their roles, you have Gregg Henry as Brother Blood, Meg Foster (okay this might be a buy just to hear her again) as Mother Mayhem, David Zayas as Jaime's Father, and Kevin Smith as... himself (Da fuck?).
Here's the official specs for the Blu-Ray and DVD along with the cover to the former (thanks to ComingSoon.NET for reveal):
