Margot Robbie could have given the acrobatic anti-hero Harley Quinn new life in live-action, however earlier than that, the character was finest recognized for showing in animated properties. Whereas Harley’s very first animated present, Batman: The Animated Sequence, was acceptable for youths, her latest collection is decidedly not.
At San Diego Comedian-Con this previous weekend, the DC Universe streaming service debuted the primary trailer for Harley Quinn, a model new animated collection aimed squarely at adults which stars The Massive Bang Principle‘s Kaley Cuoco within the lead function. Watch the trailer beneath.
Harley Quinn Trailer
The trailer begins with a warning of “specific language, grownup themes, and violence,” and it’s not lengthy till it earns that warning: actually three seconds into the motion, Harley declares herself by saying, “It’s me, dickhead.” That’s one in all solely 5 strains of dialogue in all the trailer – one other options her saying the phrase “shit,” so you recognize it’s edgy.
The trailer principally consists of a rapid-fire montage displaying Harley in motion. Amongst different issues, she beats the hell out of robotic variations of herself, pulls a Buster Keaton by standing within the actual correct spot to keep away from being crushed by a wall that falls down on prime of her, and “makes it rain” with greenback payments on prime of a stoic Poison Ivy. (When Ivy falls on her, the 2 share a short second that alludes to the truth that these two characters have a romantic relationship within the comics.)
I particularly love that the present appears to be reverting again to the pre-Jason Momoa concept of Aquaman as a punch line – Harley punches him instantly within the throat, embarrassing him in entrance of Captain Chilly, Poison Ivy, Black Manta, Two-Face, Cheetah, and Calendar Man. (Yep, this present is reaching deep into the archives for its supporting characters.)
Kaley Cuoco government produces the collection and leads the solid, which additionally consists of Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Jim Rash, Ron Funches, Chris Meloni, Diedrich Bader, James Adomian, Tony Hale, JB Smoove, Jason Alexander, Tisha Campbell Martin, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Matt Oberg, and Wanda Sykes. Harley Quinn is government produced by Patrick Schumacker and Justin Halpern, the blokes behind Shit My Dad Says and Powerless, the short-lived NBC collection about common individuals who labored in an insurance coverage agency set within the DC Comics universe.
Harley Quinn is “coming quickly” to DC Universe.
