The trailer for DC’s next animated movie, Batman & Harley Quinn is here and signals a very definite change of pace.
After the catastrophically bad adaptation of The Killing Joke, it’s such a relief to see one of these movies which actually remembers to be fun and doesn’t bury its female leads under a vast amount of terrible writing. We’re still a little worried about Harls and Ivy being on different sides but it’s not like it’s the first time it’s happened. Plus, Batman! Cracking actual jokes!
The voice cast this time around includes the always excellent Kevin Conroy as Batman, Kevin Michael Richardson as Jason Woodrue, Loren Lester back as Nightwing and Paget Brewster of Criminal Minds/Thrilling Adventure Hour as Poison Ivy. Plus. The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch makes her debut as Harley and sounds great.
Batman & Harley Quinn will be released digitally on 15 August and a physical release will follow at the end of the month.
