Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker might have been divisive for the fan community…but for DC and Warner Brothers it was good enough for a second round. Leto first played The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad and promptly stole every scene he was in. This is one of two Joker films looking to start production in the next year or so. The DCEU is starting to get as crowded as the MCU.
We’ve know for awhile that we’d (sorta) see return to the much loved Warner Bros. Animation Timmverse with the Batman & Harley Quinn movie and it is starting to look like the 90’s borne fan favourite and critical darling Dark Knight defining cartoon’s return might be more than just a one-off direct to home movie. ScreenRant has just reported that the cartoons spin-off comicbook is making a return too to in the form of a prequel that will help set up the new movie. Here’s are the official details: (more…)

For the last couple of weeks now, Mark Hamill has been enjoying giving his old Joker voice some exercise by imbuing the tweets of the new President of the United States with a decidedly different clown vibe. Given that these stories frequently make our trending post list to the right, we can see that you’ve been enjoying them too, so in that spirit, another DC Animated Universe actor has gotten in on the fun because every Joker needs a Harley Quinn. If you saw yesterday’s Meet the Press, then you know where this is going… (more…)
Suicide Squad wasn’t even out of theaters before Warner Bros. doubled down on a spin-off movie for Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn. The character stole the movie right out from under the other characters including Jared Leto‘s Mr. J. Now word is making the Internet rounds that Warner Bros. has brought on a talented script writer that’s been making the Black List (the list of the best un-produced scripts of the year) since 2012. Best known for Shut In starring Naomi Watts that just hit theaters this weekend, Christina Hodson has also had her hand in the new The Fugitive, and a Bumblebee solo movie. (more…)
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. Find out more about the deal after the jump.
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. Strong voices Batgirl in the new movie adaptation, but she’s really much better known for her Harley Quinn from the Batman Arkham series of video games and other Batman animated series. Over the weekend she went full Arkham Harley Quinn on the SDCC 2016 floor and she was fabulous! (more…)
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. As we have seen, the ‘Daddy’s Little Monster’ baseball style tee and sequined daisy dukes, took the cake for the look they were trying to portray. Now, Warner Brothers has released behind-the-scenes footage that is over 9-minutes long and it reveals the classic jester costume! Costume designer, Kate Hawley had her own input for fans. (more…)
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…
