Despite the criticism, two of the breakout characters from the the DC Extended Universe films released last year were Batman (played by Ben Affleck) and Harley Quinn (portrayed by Margot Robbie). We saw the two of them together briefly in Suicide Squad, but how about a whole movie dedicated to the less-than-dynamic duo? It’s unlikely to come to pass in live action form, but it will definitely be coming to pass in animated form. And soon. A new DC Animated Universe movie is in development called Batman and Harley Quinn, and the cast includes a fan favourite Batman and a brand new Harley.

Kevin Conroy, of course, needs no introduction (and if you think he does need an introduction get off Nerd Bastards right now!), as he’s been *the* voice of Batman for almost 25 years now. Melissa Rausch, meanwhile, is perhaps best known for playing Dr. Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory, but her voice over work includes the role of Francine the Sloth in last year’s Ice Age: Collision Course.
Presently, no other details are known about Batman and Harley Quinn although it is expected to come out sometime later this year, likely this summer. Harley Quinn was last seen in The LEGO Batman Movie voiced by Jenny Slate, while Conroy last voiced Batman in last summer’s Batman: The Killing Joke. The latest DCAU film, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, hits store shelves today featuring Miguel Ferrer in his final performance as Deathstroke.
Obviously we’ll have more information about Batman and Harley Quinn when it becomes available.
