Alan Tudyk cast as Joker in new Harley Quinn animated series.

I’ll allow it: “The upcoming Harley Quinn animated series coming to the DC Universe streaming service has officially cast Alan Tudyk, known for his work on Firefly, Rogue One and more, as the voice of the Joker.”  Alan’s a good voice actor. Versatile one, too.  What I’m still not sure if I want to allow is DC’s streaming service.  I go round and round on the proliferation of streaming services; I don’t want to get twenty million different channels and I don’t want to recreate the failed cable TV model that is spawning this alternative, either*.  So I don’t know what the answer is, here.

Still, good casting call there.

*I’ll also grumble a bit and note that all of this would be much less of a problem if we weren’t routinely extending copyright out to infinity and beyond.

The ‘Batman & Harley Quinn’ trailer.

It’s not a very imaginative name, is it?  ‘Batman & Harley Quinn’ sounds like a working title that they chose for the filing while somebody came up with a new, better one; only that person was let go, or something, and by the time somebody noticed it was too late to come up with anything else.

…That’s my guess, at least.

This one is gonna be direct to digital on August 15th.

PS: There should be all sorts of entertaining subtext, given that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are dating in the comics now (and maybe in the upcoming standalone Harley Quinn movie). What’s that?  Oh, yeah, Suicide Squad ended up making almost seven hundred and fifty million bucks globally.  That’s enough for sorta-kinda sequels.
