WARNING: The following contains a largely SPOILER-free clip from the upcoming 'Justice League Vs. Teen Titans,' as well as some discussion of its general plot. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests to you is wise...)
Now, with Jon Bernthal's recent role as Frank "The Punisher" Castle in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil Season 2 having received more plaudits than you can shake a vigilante's blood-stained weapon at, you might think he'd be content to hang up his superhero hat for a while. After all, it's not as though he's likely to find as meaty a role as Frank Castle anytime soon, right? Well, as it turns out, maybe not so much. Y'see:
Jon Bernthal Sure Does Bring the Charismatic Evil in This New Clip From 'Justice League Vs. Teen Titans'
As it turns out, Bernthal is just as much of a charismatic presence in animated form as he is in live-action Netflix shows, with the actor's portrayal of the demonically dastardly Trigon looking set to be a highlight of Justice League vs. Teen Titans.
Key things to look out for in the final (direct-to-video/on-demand/Blu-ray) animated movie, then?
Just How Evil Will Trigon Turn Out To Be?
Y'know, on a scale of one to Darkseid.
Just What Does He Have Planned For Raven?
Beyond, y'know, this here fairly comprehensive synopsis:
Frustrated and disillusioned about his work alongside the Justice League, Robin is forced into a new position with a younger super team, the Teen Titans. Readily welcomed aboard, he is immediately intrigued by the mysterious Raven and the unnatural force that looms over them - her father Trigon - a deceptive being powerful enough to destroy Metropolis by pitting the mighty Justice League against the Teen Titans. With loyalties on the line and lives in the balance, witness the super hero showdown that pits Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg against the likes of Beast Boy, Starfire, Blue Beetle and Nightwing. Only true teamwork will end the threat in this all-new DC Universe adventure!
And, perhaps most importantly...
What's Raven Going To Do About It?
Other than presumably save the day in some sort of badass superheroic fashion.
The final burning question, though?
What do YOU reckon?
Just how awesome is Jon Bernthal's Trigon going to be?
