A new trailer for DC’s new animated Harley Quinn series was just released, and gave fans a lot to be excited about for this mature-rated show.
The first teaser trailer was brief and showed Harley talking to fans to give them an idea of what to expect from the series, while Ivy was being bleak and warning Harley that fans would hate it.
This new trailer shows a lot more action with excerpts from the series, giving fans a taste of what many of the characters will look like in the show.
The series seems to draw some inspiration from the highly successful Harley Quinn comic series co-written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.
In addition to many characters that we already knew would be in the show, Robin, Superman, and Aquaman are also seen in the trailer.
The series will show Gotham from Harley Quinn’s perspective and it seems that there will be lots of room for Harley to meet DC characters who she might not normally interact with.
Harley is true to character, being wild, crazy, and a rebel, while Ivy is a much more stable influence to balance out Harley’s strong personality.
Definitely not for children, this series promises to be zany, fun, mature, and filled with excitement. It is also filled with cursing, so let’s emphasize once again that this is not for young children.
We will get to see Harley and the other characters not only when they’re fighting each other, but also when they’re just living their lives. The show aims to show more than just the side of heroes and villains that we more typically see.
The animated series will also show the dysfunction of Harley’s relationship with the Joker.
We will see the Joker dump Harley (as he tends to do), and it seems that she will try to deal with the breakup rather than immediately running back to him.
We may see Harley being portrayed more of an anti-heroine rather than a typical villain in the series, but that doesn’t mean that she will lack her usual edge.
Poison Ivy will play a large role in the series, being Harley’s closest friend. She is the voice of reason to balance out Harley’s wild and sometimes reckless actions.
The cast of the tv series is vast and includes many well-known names.
Kaley Cuoco (best known for her role on The Big Bang Theory) is the voice of Harley Quinn.
Tudyk is best known for his role as Wash on the sci-fi television series Firefly, but he has also had roles in many other films and series, and has done a great deal of voice acting, including the role of Barry Allen/The Flash on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and several characters on Young Justice.
Lake Bell will be voicing Poison Ivy.
Diedrich Bader will be voicing the role of Batman.
Bader is best known for his role as Oswald on The Drew Carey Show, but DC fans night already know him as Batman. He has voiced the role of Batman on Batman: The Brave and the Bold and JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time.
Christopher Meloni will be voicing the role of James Gordon. It’s not Meloni’s first time voicing a DC character either. He voiced Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern: First Flight movie in 2010.
Rahul Kohli (perhaps best known as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti on iZombie) will be voicing the role of Scarecrow.
Tony Hale (Buster Bluth from Arrested Development) will be voicing the role of Doctor Psycho).
