    Thanks. That has been my assumption so far.

    Yeah, it being the third movie of the year and helmed by Bruce Timm pretty much cements in my mind that it's the next out-of-continuity movie :).

    Would be better if Paul Dini were involved.

    Been while since those two worked together I think but since Harley's involved, it would make sense this would be the one. He did write a bunch of Justice League Action, so it's not a leap that he might have wrote this script around the same time.

    Well, I went ahead and submitted a listing for Batman and Harley Quinn at IMDb. There was much I had to leave blank as I have no data for the cast, director or writing credits. I took a stab in the dark and gave Bruce Timm a producer credit. Naturally I listed Sam Register as an executive producer, James Tucker as supervising producer, and Alan Burnett as co-producer. Please, let me know if I've made any errors.

    Tucker doesn't work on Timm's movies as supervising producer. The position doesn't show up in Timm's past 2 movies. Timm was an executive producer along with Register in his past 2 movies.

    Thanks! Once the entry is up, I can submit a correction (if you or someone else doesn't beat me to it). I've also got the movie listed as in post-production. I hope that's accurate.

    EDIT: That was quick; the entry is already up at the Internet Movie Database. It's too soon to be able to submit an edit yet, though.

    This image is available when looking up The Judas Contract on iTunes:

    I assume we'll be hearing something about this officially this week as they usually announce cast/crew before the digital premiere of the sneak peek.

    Looks great to me and it seems to be in the continuity of TAS/TNBA.

    So it looks like we're going back to the Bruce Timm style, part of me hopes this could be family friendly, at most PG or at least a soft PG-13.

    I always love seeing the Bruce Timm style.

    I hope they got Loren Lester back as Nightwing. He could use some time to shine after being criminally underrated/under-used during TNBA/BB days.

    Nightwing! Really cool to see him in this (and eating fast food in the Batmobile), especially since I wasn't expecting it :D.

    That image makes me think the plot might end up being similar to "Harlequinade" from B:TAS, with Batman and Harley having to begrudgingly team-up to stop Joker or some fiendish plot, with Dick along for the ride ;).

    Also really cool to see the classic Timm style and designs coming back for this, which might also be an indicator of the voice cast as well :cool:.

    Looks like it's going to be a fun movie :).

    In addition to Pfieffer-Pfan's pic above, I snagged a grab of just the image itself for a closer look.

    And here's a shot again of the iTunes Extras menu for Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. Clock on the image for a closer look:

    Expect further coverage of Batman and Harley Quinn once content, including officially releases images and such, starts to roll out!

    The above images are also available at The World's Finest.

    Harley looks photoshopped into that image. Could it just be a mock up and not actually how the movie will look? I really hope it's in Timm's style

    Thanks, James. A much better look.

    I really would love it if Timm could've coaxed Arleen Sorkin out of retirement for this, but I doubt it. Plus, considering his love for Tara Strong, it's likely she got the gig.

    The image seems authentic to me (unless you can find a previous shot of Nightwing munching on fast food in the Batmobile). So, it looks like this marks a return to the DCAU, at least for this one-off.

    I think it's especially likely to be Tara Strong given that, while they were able to get back most of the original cast for that B:TAS View-Master VR thing (with Jeff Bennett having to fill-in for Bob Hastings as Commissioner Gordon), they had Strong as Harley.

    I wasn't hyped for this film, but that image changed everything. I would love it if this was part of the DCAU, but even if it isn't, the artstyle alone will get me to watch this.

    I've been patiently waiting for more information about this movie, hoping and suspecting all along that it would be DCAU-related given that this year marks the 25th anniversary of BTAS. It's so good to finally have confirmation that it's at least emulating the style of TNBA. Hopefully it's set in the same continuity and will feature as many as possible of the original VAs. Obviously Alfred and Gordon will have been recast, assuming they appear, but I do want to hear Arleen Sorkin as Harley in this... I'm also crossing my fingers that the Dynamic Music Partners are involved, since Bruce Timm brought them back previously for The Killing Joke.

    Nightwing's hair was different in the TV show so that part is new too
