The first trailer for Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and get your first look at Harley Quinn’s kick-ass gang of anti-heroes
Kevin Conroy and Will Friedle reprise their roles as an elderly Bruce Wayne and his apprentice Terry McGinnis in a Batman Beyond short by Darwyn Cooke.
The Batcave is infiltrated by a younger version of the superhero circa the 90s TV series Batman: The Animated Series. We all know the original Batman would mop the floor with McGinnis. Fortunately, it’s just a robot Batman and no match for the real thing. Bruce turns on the Batmobile and flames shoot out the back melting the imposter like the Terminator.
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Three-time Oscar nominee Phoenix (“The Master,” “Walk the Line,” “Gladiator”) stars in the titular role alongside Oscar winner Robert De Niro (“Raging Bull,” “The Godfather: Part II”) as Franklin. The film also stars Zazie Beetz (“Deadpool 2”), Frances Conroy (TV’s “American Horror Story,” Hulu’s “Castle Rock”), Marc Maron (TV’s “Maron,” “GLOW”), Bill Camp (“Red Sparrow,” “Molly’s Game”), Glenn Fleshler (TV’s “Billions,” “Barry”), Shea Whigham (“First Man,” “Kong: Skull Island”), Brett Cullen (“42,” Netflix’s “Narcos”), Douglas Hodge (“Red Sparrow,” TV’s “Penny Dreadful”) and Josh Pais (upcoming “Motherless Brooklyn,” “Going in Style”).
Oscar nominee Phillips (“Borat,” “The Hangover” trilogy) directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Oscar-nominated writer Scott Silver (“The Fighter”), based on characters from DC. The film is produced by Phillips and Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born,” “American Sniper”) under their Joint Effort banner, and Oscar nominee Emma Tillinger Koskoff (“The Wolf of Wall Street”). It is executive produced by Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Aaron L. Gilbert, Joseph Garner, Richard Baratta, and Bruce Berman.
Behind the scenes, Phillips is joined by director of photography Lawrence Sher (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” “The Hangover” trilogy), production designer Mark Friedberg (“Selma,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), editor Jeff Groth (“War Dogs,” “The Hangover Part III”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (“Phantom Thread,” “The Artist”). The music is by Hildur Guðnadóttir (“Sicario: Day of the Soldado”).
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents, in Association with Village Roadshow Pictures, in Association with BRON Creative, a Joint Effort Production, a Film by Todd Phillips, “Joker.” It will be Only in cinemas and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Harley Quinn series, starring The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco as the madcap Ms. Quinn. While the moments may be brief, they’re enough to give us a sense that this Harley doesn’t take orders from anyone – even if their nickname is “puddin.”
The series will air as a part of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC Comics-branded direct-to-consumer digital platform, which has ordered 26 episodes for a half-hour animated action-comedy series simply titled Harley Quinn. The image above is a piece of development art for the series, which leads us to expect a Harley look in line with her current comic book incarnation.
In this new series, Harley Quinn will have finally broken things off for good with her abusive boyfriend the Joker, and will attempt to make it on her own as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City. Joining Harley will be her BFF Poison Ivy, as well as a whole cast of DC Universe heroes and villains both old and new. Although this has not been confirmed either way, I would expect Batman to show up on at least a semi-regular basis.
Just announced at the show’s 20th Anniversary celebration panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. will officially release the complete Batman Beyondseries, as well as the movie Return of the Joker, for the first time on Blu-Ray this October.
The limited edition set, which will cost $100, includes all 52 episodes of the future-set continuation/spinoff of the legendary Batman: The Animated Series, which itself received the high-definition Blu-Ray treatment for the first time last year, as well as the aforementioned Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, across four discs, alongside 15 bonus featurettes. Also included in the packaging is a special chrome-plated Funko Pop figurine of Terry McGinnis as Batman, as well as four lenticular art cards designed for this new set.
This November, they will release their “Opening Sequence” Batman ARTFX+, a striking Batman in his iconic pose from the end of the series’ title sequence, with a diorama base capturing other design elements from the sequence.
