At the world premiere of Titans at New York Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Television shared some exciting news about other upcoming projects for new streaming service DC Universe. Among them is the animated series Harley Quinn, which looks to be a delightful take on single Harley Quinn (The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco) breaking up with the Joker and striking out with her bestie/soulmate Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) in her quest to become the “queenpin” of Gotham.
Warner Bros. shared the cheeky first teaser, featuring a Harley who may be behind bars in Arkham, but has no problem breaking the fourth wall to rag on both the DC Extended Universe and the Deadpool cartoon that failed to materialize. And by her side is the wonderfully droll Ivy:
The project, described as an adult animated action-comedy, follows Harley as she breaks things off with the Joker and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal “queenpin” of Gotham City. The series will also feature Poison Ivy and a cast of heroes and villains—old and new—from the DC universe.
That includes Batman, Lex Luthor, Doctor Psycho, Wonder Woman, and more. Featuring the voice talents of Alan Tudyk, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, Tony Hale, Chris Meloni, and more, it’s anyone’s guess as to who’s voicing whom.
The first season of Harley Quinn (with 26 episodes) is expected to premiere around mid-October 2019 (judging from the slate at DC’s presentation).
