A special preview of the Batman and Harley Quinn animated movie is also a part of the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract animated movie that gets released tomorrow on digital and April 18th on Blu-Ray.
Empire also revealed the following details:
• Will be in the style of Batman: The Animated Series.
• An original story featuring the reluctant team-up of Batman, Nightwing and Harley Quinn to try and stop a global catastrophe caused by Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue, AKA the Plant-Master.
• Loren Lester is Nightwing
• Melissa Rauch is Harley Quinn
• Paget Brewster is Poison Ivy
• Additional cast: John DiMaggio, Eric Bauza, Rob Paulsen, Robin Atkin Downes, Mindy Sterling, Trevor Devall.
"I love that Harley is a badass and, beyond that, that she uses her humor as another weapon in her arsenal," Rauch said. "She knows just how to diffuse a situation with her humor, and how to incite a situation with her sarcasm. It's a dream role. I knew Harley had a higher pitched tone, and a bit of a New York accent — and I come from a New Jersey family where everyone could be former gun molls. So I wanted to give a nod to my background without being as shrill. In all honesty, I used to speak exactly like that — my acting school professors really worked the accent out of me. So it was fun to find those tones and accent again."
"So many fans have asked when there will be another Batman: The Animated Series, and this film really captures that sensibility and essence that people loved about the original series," Lester said. "That makes perfect sense when you know Bruce Timm was at the helm of both. The difference is we're not restricted by the networks for this film, so we can take the story and characters in more mature areas, and explore more about them as three-dimensional human beings with human feelings and human desires that we often couldn’t explore in the series."
Batman and Harley Quinn will be released this Summer.
