Hawkman and Hawkgirl will make a cameo in the upcoming Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special, and the actors voicing said characters are very excited about it.
According to Deadline, Abbott Elementary actors Quinta Brunson and Tyler James Williams are the voices behind the DC superheroes. The two join an already impressive cast for the special, which features several DC characters falling in love and expressing that love in various NSFW ways.
“Harley Quinn is such a brilliant series and it is an honor to lend my voice to this special,” Williams told Deadline in a statement. “I think the cameo is something both Abbott Elementary and DC fans will enjoy.”
Brunson added, “As a Harley Quinn fan, I’m thrilled to lend my voice to the special and to team up with my Abbott Elementary creative partners, Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker and co-star Tyler James Williams for this fun episode.”
We don’t have details on where or how Hawkman or Hawkgirl will show up, but chances are good that their brief appearance will have an element of romance. In addition to Brunson and Williams, the special will feature the voices of Kaley Cuoco, Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Matt Oberg, James Wolk, Natalie Morales, Chris Diamantopoulos, James Adomian, Jim Rash, Vanessa Marshall, Janet Varney, Rachel Drach, Leila Birch, Josh Helman, Casey Wilson, and Michael Ironside.
The special premieres February 9, 2023 on HBO Max. And if you want even more Harley Quinn after that, I’ve got good news for you—the show has already been picked up for a fourth season, though the premiere date for that has yet to be announced.
