2019 will mark some big changes for Kaley Cuoco, as she'll see the end of one show and the birth of another. As many already know, the actress is keeping it geeky with her follow-up to The Big Bang Theory as the voice of Harley Quinn in the character's upcoming animated series. Cuoco recently hopped on her social media to share a bit about her experience working on the program thus far, and to hype folks up about DC Universe.
Working on Harley Quinn has been an insane blast, we can't wait for you to see it! It's all coming at you in 2019... #adulthumor
As for the "we" referred to in Kaley Cuoco's Instagram post, she may be referring to the all-star cast for Harley Quinn. Celebrities beyond Cuoco include talented actors and actresses like Giancarlo Esposito, Jason Alexander, Lake Bell, and JB Smooth. Alan Tudyk's also in on things, as Batman voice actor Diedrich Bader confirmed Tudyk be voicing The Joker. Tudyk is often gold in whatever project he's involved in, so his Joker has the potential to be something special.
Kaley Cuoco accompanied her thoughts with a sizzle reel for DC Universe, which teased previously shown footage of Harley Quinn and other DC Universe shows previously released and upcoming. Cuoco's animated Quinn pops up in the midst of action sequences that feature other DC shows and films like Titans, Krypton, and Batman Returns. The video (seen below) essentially drives home the message that DC fans who haven't already subscribed to DC Universe should definitely do so in the coming year.
As for what Harley Quinn is about, viewers will get to see Harley engage on a journey to become the "Queenpin" of Gotham City. This reportedly entails getting a spot on the Legion of Doom, which will likely mean Harley's going to be rubbing shoulders with a bunch of other notable DC Baddies as things progress. Fans have already seen Poison Ivy in past promo footage, and iZombie's Rahul Kohli has been teased to voice Jonathan Crane aka Scarecrow.
Harley Quinn will show the character and other Batman villains in a genre rarely touched by big comic book outlets, adult animation. Marvel had plans for a Deadpool adult animation series earlier in the year that appeared similar in tone to Harley Quinn, but plans for it ultimately fell through. Hopefully, Harley Quinn has more success and gives DC Universe another strong original series to add to its growing lineup of superhero shows in 2019.
As Kaley Cuoco mentioned on her social media, Harley Quinn is due out on DC Universe sometime in 2019, with rumors circulating about a release sometime in October.
