Warner Bros Japan released a full trailer for their upcoming anime movie Suicide Squad ISEKAI today. It’s just the latest in an unexpected avalanche of Suicide Squad related material from DC — we’ve had movies, we’ve had shows, we’ve had new comics and there will at some point be a video game. This reporter never thought he’d have to write the words “Amanda Waller” so many times.
Originally envisioned as an obscure one-shot villain slated to appear in a solitary episode, Harley Quinn’s trajectory shifted dramatically due to the rapid attachment people developed for her, largely propelled by Arlene Sorkin’s portrayal. This portrayal depicted a woman who succumbed to insanity through love, and many resonated with her, recognizing her as a character trapped in a toxic relationship yet striving to endure it.
With season four of Harley Quinn set to premiere one week after SDCC, timing was tight. Would DC release a trailer early to have ample time to promote the thing, or would they hold it for the convention and hope that it would produce a wave big enough to create awareness in a short amount of time? They picked the latter strategy: this is the first real look at HQ S4 we’ve had, and the show is due out next Thursday.
There’s a new Batman anime series coming. A new Batmanime. However, Batman himself is not the star.
It was quite a long wait between Seasons 2 and 3 for the animated Harley Quinn series. This was mainly due to the fact that at the time it was renewed, production had shut down entirely. Animated shows take a lot longer than live-action shows to make. This is typically buffered by multi-season or early renewals. The option for renewing a cartoon AFTER its latest season has appeared is always an option, but it’s not recommended, as by that point everyone involved will have moved on.
To say the former HBO Max doesn’t have the best reputation for animation as of late is an understatement, but rumors of its demise seem to be exaggerated. There are plenty of animated shows coming to the service within the next year, and they were collectively confirmed in a new press release sent out by Max yesterday. This is the same press release that confirmed Season 2 of Velma, and that’s all any other news outlet is focusing on, but there are plenty of things with actual promise that deserve a bit of attention. (Like Clone High, which is running this very second. Get to watching so it can live!)
NOTE: our apologies for posting two articles about the same damn thing ten minutes apart. I try not to have this happen, honest.
Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special is a great way for the fans to wait for the fourth season.
Gotham Knights teased fans with a boss battle with one of the villains. The player is playing as Nightwing with Harley Quinn as the boss fight. These two fought in a video game before but not this brutal. Nightwing must capture Harley in the Return to Arkham DLC in the Arkham Knight, but they never engage in physical combat. There was a limitation on man-on-woman violence then. You just beat up her minions, and she will get arrested.
For quite a long time, the bread and butter of collectibles company Cryptozoic has been figurines of popular characters, DC superheroes most prominently. They’ve come out with a lot of them by now. We suppose they figured they had to shake things up, because their latest product is just….PART of Batman. Specifically, his hand.
As you know, Cryptozoic mainly deals in products based on licensed properties. But they have an original character, a mascot — he’s short, he has a skull for a head and his name is Bob. Bob hasn’t been in much Crpytozoic merch….until now. You can add one of several Bobs to your shelf for free, if you’re lucky that is.
James Gunn was given by DC the liberties to kill off any character at the Suicide Squad!!! Not Even Harley is safe!
Do not get emotionally attached to any character from the poster used for this article. In a recent interview from Empire, Director James Gunn clear said many characters will die. No one is safe. Harley Quinn may have the face of the franchise plot armor, but it is not the case. This movie is not a sequel to the first Suicide Squad movie. This movie is set on its own universe and continuity. This Motion picture have no relations with Justice League dceu universe and The birds of prey neither. DC comics and Warner Brothers had given the director of Guards of the Galaxy full liberties to do everything he wants. Gunn had worked with Warner Brothers before with the Scooby Doo movie and the videogame Lollipop Chainsaw. He have better relationship with them than Marvel and Disney.
