We talk the news of the week. It’s been a long time but we dive right back into it. Kyle Stevens announces that Kirby Krackle will be booking a House Concert Tour for October go here. Channing Tatum says that after Deadpool & Logan they now know what they can do with Gambit. WB’s new DC Comics-branded digital service announces that they have cast Anna Diop as Starfire in the long gestating Teen Titans live action show. WB/DC is back at it again this week with the announcement of several DCEU related films with a Joker origin movie and a Joker & Harley movie, which may or may not have Leto & Robbie.
Our review of Batman and Harley Quinn starring Kevin Conroy, Melissa Rauch and Paget Brewster. Synopsis: Spawned from an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn brings legendary voice actor Kevin Conroy back to his most famous role. Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet—and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.
