    I for one am glad that Batman is not in this movie but I have yet to see a solo Superman and Wonder Woman movie set in the New 52 and they are much as popular as Batman and James Tucker and company just use them as bit characters and more focus than their cash cow Batman. I think if they could cast better voice actors than Jerry O"Connell and Rosario Dawson I think WB animation and story writers could give us a decent Superman-Wonder Woman story which would fans accept and enjoy. Hopefully The Judas Contract is a step in the right direction

    A bit of a power struggle while trying to take their dating to the next level, eh? That's going to be entertaining. That still of NW on the ground is starting to make sense, lol. :D

    I could have sworn i've read or heard somehwere that TT: TJC is being directed by Jay Oliva and i believed it to be true until i saw this interview. I'm not sure where i got that idea from, but i see some blogs were reporting the same thing around the time the trailer came out. Sam Liu is cool too though, and it makes sense since he directed JL Vs. TT.

    Liu's description of Terra's arc made me think of Damian except he was never ostracized like she was.

    They do storyboard on each others movies and are often mistaken for directing each other's movies on Twitter but they roll with it. What kind of world for these bloggers not to do research and proofreading before publishing an article? :p

    84 minutes? I'm intrigued.

    The DC Universe animated movies usually come in at around 75 minutes (give or take a few).

    Huh. I wonder if they're either bumping up their runtime's going forward or that it was necessary for this film given all the characters and sub-plots it will be juggling o_O?

    This is really interesting. They usually only go up to 70 or so minutes.

    Besides the combined length of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Deluxe Edition, only Green Lantern: Emerald Knights comes up to 84 minutes. It actually is the same length as Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.

    The only animated DC movie that comes close and isn't a collection of shorts is Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox at 81 minutes, followed by Batman vs Robin at 80 minutes.
    The Flashpoint Paradox packed in a lot to properly represent the source material. I'm guessing Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will be the same situation, which is sweet! So I'm guessing the latter.

    I'm wondering if the budget was bumped up for this. The average production budget for the DC Universe animated movies has been estimated as around $3.5 million. That is a key reason for the relatively short running times.
