The next DC animated movie that is coming up is Batman and Harley Quinn, featuring Kevin Conroy back in the role as the Caped Crusader while Melissa Rausch is taking on the role of Harleen Quinzel. With Batman and Harley Quinn set to arrive on Blu-Ray and DVD next month, DC Comics has some big plans coming up for the film.
Screen Rant revealed today that the movie is getting a digital prequel comic titled Harley Quinn and Batman. Ty Templeton is writing the five-chapter series with art from Rick Burchett and is set to start coming out in August. Here is how DC Comics describes the prequel comic.
“It’s the team-up we’ve been dreaming of as the cute psychopath Harley Quinn joins the brooding Dark Knight for a brand-new Digital First comic series, HARLEY QUINN AND BATMAN. The series, from Batman writer Ty Templeton and artist Rick Burchett, is an exciting new five-chapter prequel adventure to the Batman And Harley Quinn animated film coming out this August from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
Harley Quinn is a legend in her own mind, so when she realizes the Joker thinks of her as a sidekick, she takes her revenge. Harley’s now faced with a hard decision to break out as her own super-villain, and she’s willing to go for it!”
For anyone who is attending San Diego Comic-Con later this month will be able to check out the film at a special world premiere. Batman and Harley Quinn will be screened on Friday, July 21 in Ballroom 20 followed by a panel with several cast members as well as the filmmakers for a Q&A.
“In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.”
Batman and Harley Quinn, starring Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman, Melissa Rauch as Harley Quinn, Loren Lester as Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing, Paget Brewster as Poison Ivy and Kevin Michael Richardson as Jason Woodrue a.k.a. The Floronic Man, is set to come out on Digital HD on August 15, while it will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on August 29.
