Warner Bros. animation has dropped the first teaser trailer for DC’s Harley Quinn animated series ahead of it’s NYCC panel. It gives us a first good look at the adult-themed project and it even takes a shot at the animated Deadpool project that Marvel cancelled, which is pretty amusing.
The teaser features Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy sitting in Arkham Asylum, as they promote the show directly to the audience and Harley makes sure to point out that, “unlike that Deadpool cartoon, it’s actually coming out.”
The voice cast of the series was also announced and it’s a pretty impressive line-up that includes The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco as Harley, Lake Bell (In a World…, Wet Hot American Summer series, Childrens Hospital), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Powerless), Ron Funches (Powerless), JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), Giancarlo Esposito (Bob Roberts, Breaking Bad), Natalie Morales (Bojack Horseman), Jim Rash (Mike Tyson Mysteries), Diedrich Bader (Veep), Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep), Chris Meloni (Happy!, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).
The first season will consist of 26 half-hour episodes and this was the previously released synopsis:
The animated series follows Harley as she breaks things off with the Joker and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal “queenpin” of Gotham City. The series is described as an adult animated action-comedy.
Harley Quinn comes from Powerless producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Dean Lorey and Cuoco.
