Director & Writers For ‘Batman and Harley Quinn’ Revealed

Batman Harley Quinn

Last week a new featurette included on the home video release of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract offered fans an inside look at the development of Batman and Harley Quinn. However, few details on the creative team were provided, including the name of the film’s director. Now, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has confirmed to Collider that Sam Liu, director of  Batman: The Killing Joke and Justice League vs Teen Titans, will helm the film and that Bruce Timm co-wrote the script alongside Jim Krieg.

Bruce Timm and Sam Register will serve as executive producers.

Few details on the film’s plot are known, though Bruce Timm has stated that the story will involve Batman turning to Harley Quinn for assistance.

The voice cast for the film includes Kevin Conroy and The Big Bang Theory star Melissa Rauch as the titular hero and villain, respectively. Loren Lester, Paget Brewster, John DiMaggio, Eric Bauza, Rob Paulsen, Robin Atkin Downes, Mindy Sterling and Trevor Devall also star.

Batman and Harley Quinn will be released on home video late this summer.

Are you excited for the film? In the meantime, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is now available available on Digital HD.

Led by Starfire, the Teen Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing – have built a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil; but their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on April 18.

5 Teen Titans Stories That Deserve The Animated Treatment

Teen TitansWith Teen Titans: Judas Contract on the way, it’s a good time to be a Teen Titans fan.

In recent years the DC animated features have been doing a great job in adapting compelling story arcs. I think they should keep their eyes on the Titans if they want to continue releasing emotionally rich stories. Not only do the Titans stories feature great fight scenes, but they all feel like personal stories about characters continually growing and trying to find their place in the world. Let me just apologize in advanced for the fact Geoff Johns has such a solid place on this list. His run on Teen Titans helped solidify my love of comics and turned me into a monthly reader.

    The Killing Joke is really the only DCAU movie I’ve regretted blind buying. I probably still would’ve bought it tho’ if I had seen a preview screening just cuz I own all of them on blu. That said, I enjoyed his Batman: Year One, and JL: Crisis on Two Earths was fine. So hopefully, this will be another good addition.
