DC Comics supervillain, sweetheart and sidekick of Batman’s eternal enemy The Joker, Harley Quinn will be seemingly getting her own animated spin-off.
After making a much-lauded debut in Suicide squad, DC fan favorite Harley Quinn will be returning to her roots in her own 26-episode animated series.
According to Deadline, the series will simply be called ‘Harley Quinn’ and will be aimed at an adult audience.
Margot Robbie – who played the character in Suicide Squad and was the focus of much of that movie’s praise – will apparently be approached to voice the character.
The proposed spin-off will see Harley Quinn after she breaks things off with The Joker and attempts to become Gotham’s queen of crime.
It will “also will feature Poison Ivy and a whole cast of heroes and villains, old and new, from the DC Universe”.
It’s not clear if the show will be in any way related to the DC Extended Universe version of Harley Quinn – the only piece of development art currently available does at least nod in Robbie’s direction.
The show will be written and executive produced by Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker – who helmed the ill-fated Powerless – alongside Warner Bros. Animation’s Dean Lorey.
