With the animated adaptation of The Killing Joke in selected cinemas today ahead of its home release next month, Warner Bros. Animation has announced its next three animated DC offerings.

The news was announced over the weekend, with Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and Batman and Harley Quinn to be released next year. All three of those titles will certainly be intriguing to longtime DC fans, although an adaptation of The Judas Contract will likely be the one that jumps out the most to many.

The official blurb on these upcoming releases reads:

Justice League Dark: An adaptation of the popular comic book series that will bring John Constantine to the world of animation for the first time in a supernatural story that promises plenty of mystery and thrills, along with an amazing voice cast. While Constantine’s world of demons and magic are an important part of the DC Universe, it’s been largely unexplored in DC’s connected universe of animated movies until now.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract: The Judas Contract debuted in 1984 in the pages of New Teen Titans, when the Titans’ comic book popularity was at its height. Written by Marvel Wolfman and drawn by George Perez, it introduced the perhaps not-to-be-trusted Terra to the Teen Titans and was the storyline in which Dick Grayson first adopted the identity of Nightwing.

Batman and Harley Quinn: A brand new, wholly original story from DC animated legend Bruce Timm. The storyline for this one is tightly under wraps, but considering Timm’s beloved style and complete understanding of both these classic characters, fans can expect this movie to be the talk of next summer.

No exact release dates have been given for these animated efforts at this stage, just that Justice League Dark will be the first released, with Teen Titans: The Judas Contract following in the spring, and Batman and Harley Quinn arriving next summer.
