With the announcement of a Batman & Harley Quinn animated team-up movie bringing back Kevin Conroy and Bruce Timm (from Batman: The Animated Series), DeepBoyce and HazyRome have DC’s handling of Harley Quinn on their minds. Despite Harley Quinn’s current popularity, the League feels that DC Comics might be on a slippery slope in their handling of the Harley Quinn character. The Harley Quinn character has great potential and we don’t want to see her fizzle out with the same characterizations and story beats. From The Joker, to Batman, to Poison Ivy, and Catwoman, the Spectacular Spoiler League opens a window into the psychology of Harley Quinn and how DC Comics could make a more compelling and relatable character for the Batman and Harley Quinn film team-up, the DCEU’s upcoming Gotham City Sirens, and future DC Comics products.
