“Harley Quinn is on the cusp of a Deadpool- esque blow up. Mainstream audiences are about to see what fans and cosplayers have known for years when she makes her live-action debut in August’s Suicide Squad played by Margot Robbie. The buzz surrounding that character is at an all-time high, with rumors flying that she’ll be getting her own spin-off that will feature a team-up with other DC female heroes. Now, we’ve just learned that Harley Quinn will headline ANOTHER movie, albeit in a different format. Harley Quinn will co-star alongside Batman in the animated Batman and Harley Quinn, an original story created by her creator Bruce Timm.
Warner Bros. Animation hosted a panel at Comic-Con ahead of the premiere of their widely anticipated Killing Joke adaptation, and they announced a few new projects in development. Our own Conner Schwerdtfeger was lucky enough to be in the room and he was able to learn about the new Harley Quinn-centric film. There’s no word on casting or plot, but we know it’s a story from Bruce Timm, who’s pretty much the authority on Harley Quinn.
[Next] summer on this stage I hope we’ll be showing you Batman and Harley Quinn: A Bruce Timm Story.
This is sure to make lots of Batman: The Animated series fans happy. It seems like the perfect time for Bruce Timm to write another Harly Quinn story. If it’s Timm behind the wheel, then it isn’t crazy to assume that long-time Batman voice Kevin Conroy will return to reprise the character. That would make this film a Batman: The Animated Series reunion of sorts…”
