Harley Quinn might finally be getting the spotlight according to a report from Deadline.

Harley Quinn and Friends

harley quinn animatedHarley’s popularity spiked following her appearance in last year’s Suicide Squad. Now the character will feature in her own spin-off film and an animated action-comedy series for an adult audience. Harley first appeared in animated format in the 90s’ Batman: The Animated Series. She also has her own comic series, as well as appearing in the popular Harley and Ivy books.

The new Harley Quinn will reportedly include other DC Universe characters with one glaring exception—no mention of the Joker yet. In fact his only appearance so far is the fact that Harley has moved on. This version of Harley has finally “…broken things off with the Joker once and for all and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City.”

Does this mean we will see some Harley and Ivy scraps included in the show? If the Joker stays out of the way, maybe Harley and Ivy can find happiness in each other’s arms instead.

The Talent

Deadline reports that Margot Robbie, who brought the character to life in Suicide Squad, is “…at the top of Warner Bros.’ wish list for actresses to voice the title character in the animated series, and she is expected to be approached for the gig.” This the Joker’s absence even more prominent, as Jared Leto is expected to join Robbie in Harley’s spin-off film.
