DC Universe recently unveiled a behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming HARLEY QUINN animated series, starring THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Haley Cuoco as Daddy’s Little Monster herself, Harley Quinn. The new video treats us to more footage from the much-anticipated animation than ever before, and features brief interviews with many of the show’s cast and crew.
As Harley tells Poison Ivy in the above video, she’s come a long way from simply being thought of as the Joker’s girlfriend, and she’s about to show the people of Gotham what she’s really made of. As the footage unfolds, we find many of Gotham’s “worst of the worst” making an appearance, such as the Joker, Riddler, Dr. Psycho, and one of my personal favorites, Clayface. A number of heroes also enter the fray, including Wonder Woman, Superman, and of course, Batman. From what I can gather, it looks as if old Bats will have his hands full once Harley decides to make a new name for herself, as she’s loaded with sugar, spice, and everything that’s not nice after enduring year’s of the Joker’s abuse.
Joining Cuoco for HARLEY QUINN are Lake Bell (BOJACK HORSEMAN) as Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Sanna Lathan (BLADE) as Catwoman, Alan Tudyk (FIREFLY) as Joker, James Wolk (MAD MEN) as Superman, Rahul Kohli (I, ZOMBIE) as Scarecrow, Vanessa Marshall (ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY) as Princess Diana/Wonder Woman, as well as Jason Alexander (SEINFELD), Diedrich Bader (OFFICE SPACE), Ron Funches (GET HARD), Tony Hale (VEEP), Christopher Meloni (MAN OF STEEL), Natalie Morales (BATTLE OF THE SEXES), Jim Rash (COMMUNITY), J.B. SMOOVE (SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME), and Wanda Sykes (MONSTER IN LAW), among others.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for HARLEY QUINN:
The adult animated comedy series follows Harley’s adventures, where alongside a ragtag crew of DC castoffs, she tries to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom.
Cuoco is executive producing via her Yes, Norman Productions banner alongside Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey. The series is scheduled for a tentative premiere exclusively on DC Universe in mid-October.
