After Margot Robbie‘s stellar rendition of Harley Quinn in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, it should be no surprise that Warner Bros. wants to capitalize on her popularity and keep the momentum going. The has signed a first-look deal with the studio, which means Robbie will be producing films through her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. She’ll be joined by partners Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, and Sophia Kerr. With Suicide Squad bringing in just over $700 million so far at the box office and the relationship with Robbie’s company on other productions coming out later this year it’s safe bet for Warner Bros. to keep her around.

Most people that are into certain fictional characters will buy a tee shirt to represent it, or even buy a limited edition prop replica from a film they enjoy. Kevin Smith, on the other hand, named his kid after one of his favorite characters.
That’s right, we’re talking about his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. Kevin has been into the Batman franchise for as long as we can all remember, so it’s no wonder that he would put that much thought into things. When his daughter was born, he and his wife decided that Harley Quinn would be her name and she has fully embraced her namesake. (more…)
Tara Strong, the voice of Harley Quinn in all our animated favorites from DC was at SDCC 2016 this year promoting Batman: Killing Joke.

If you’ve been following the upcoming Suicide Squad film, then you know there were a LOT of costume trails and errors to be had to come up with the perfect fit for one Harley Quinn.

If there is one thing Warner Bros/ DC does better than Marvel, its their animated universe. From Flashpoint, The Dark Knight Returns, Young Justice, and everything in between, they absolutely knock it out of the park. This is not to say Marvel isn’t any good but the sheer volume of quality animated movies and shows that DC puts out is way ahead of anything Marvel has been doing. DC also treats their animated projects with much more brevity than kid friendly stuff Marvel does on Disney XD. For every Spider-Man or Super Hero Squad, there is Justice League Doom or All Star Superman. Sufficed to say, fans are eager to know what’s next.
During their Comic-Con panel, they officially announced three animated films that are currently underway…
Acting, singing, dancing, writing, time travelling and evil archery – often, it seems that there is no ends to the list of skills at which John Barrowman excels. Leaping to every new challenge with his signature flair and flamboyance – not to mention incredible levels of energy – it’s no surprise that he’s won so many awards for being generally an all round amazing entertainer. At San Diego Comic Con this week, he added to his list of accomplishments by showing off his fabulous cosplaying talents. (more…)
