Harley Quinn Star Says Season Follows Her Trying To Be The Best Supervillain

Ahead of my own expectations, we have been introduced to the first footage of the upcoming animated Harley Quinn series. The show seems very much in the vein of a Deadpool-type series, with violence and profanity likely set to become episodic regulars, and it introduced actress Kaley Cuoco as the title character of the show.

Speaking with EW, the actress gave some thoughts on her love for the upcoming adult animated comedy, her love for animation, and the time she had recording:

“I’ve always loved animation. I did it years ago, and I haven’t been in the animation world in a while. [Harley Quinn] is so edgy, it’s obviously a very adult comedy, and with such a world-renowned character, it’s been a blast to record.”

But what will the show actually be about? Well, don’t expect this to be an epic narrative. First and foremost, it looks to be a fun comedy, but the overall goal the character has it to be the “best badass supervillain that there is.” This leads her to clash with the likes of Doctor Psycho, Batman, Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman, and Poison Ivy, who we saw in the first teaser. One key aspect here is that this is her, post-Joker:

“She just doesn’t want to be Joker’s girlfriend anymore. She wants to lead the pack, which I find very appropriate for this kind of day and age and vibe that we’re in. It has definitely been empowering. To sit in a booth and scream and cuss and yell at boys for hours at a time, it has been an absolute blast. Not having to do hair and makeup has made it that much better. But it’s such an iconic character, so with all of that respect and love toward the character, we’re trying to bring a new spin to it, and I think the fans that love this type of show are really going to enjoy it.”

Sounds like a fun ride to me, and interestingly enough, I find myself more excited for this than for Titans — though it’s probably because, as a more casual comic book reader, I haven’t been burnt out by the many different takes of the character in the comics.
