It wasn’t too long ago that we shared the long anticipated Full Trailer for “Harley Quinn” which was to be the first brand-new animated series coming to the DC Universe streaming service. Since I want you all to be up to speed please just click HERE to correct any oversight. If you subscribe to the service, please be aware that it has begun streaming as of today and much like the “Titans”, “Doom Patrol” and “Swamp Thing” series that came before it, will broadcast episodically. That means week by week and no binging until it completes. Let’s review some artwork, premise and ensemble voice casting.
It was way, way back during New York Comic Con 2018 that the folks over at Warner Brothers Animation gave us a “First Look” at the upcoming DC Universe Streaming Service series “Harley Quinn”. I documented that visual HERE for those who are new to our broadcasts. Now, over one year later we have Full Trailer for the soon to come series. Let’s take a look.
Warner Animation Group keeps on dishing out the animated features with their cadre of DC Universe superheroes at an unrelenting clip and since so many of them have been awesome, I’m happy to help broadcast the latest upcoming feature which is “Justice League Vs. The Fatal Five”. Let’s take a look down below at the clip, some light premise as was secured from IMDB and the voice casting.
I had a LOT of fun at this years NY Comic Con and went all four days to absorb the sights, the scenes and the colorful cosplayers. You can check out some of the stuff from the four days over on our Official Instagram if you are a fan of the medium. During the convention there was a big push by DC Entertainment for their launch of the “DC Universe” streaming service. I had see the trailer for “Titans” which was their first series to come but missed this introduction to the upcoming “Harley Quinn” animated series. Let’s take a look now shall we.

Premise: When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way throughout America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that the DC Universe animated movies are miles ahead of anything that they have released on the big screen that feature some of our favorite superheroes. Of course as a faithful comics fan to canon, I get a little rant going when too many liberties are taken. This trailer looks great but I did have one qualm as a reader of the original issues as they played out. When Doomsday fought the Justice League, he did so while half secured in the suit you see him in. He only had one arm free and he pretty much wiped out the League. It was a testament to the creatures unbridled power that he could and did beat the Justice League as a whole with one arm tied behind his back. Anyway, that’s just me bitching and moaning. The plot of this one is pretty self-explanatory because in the comics Superman did die. It will be interesting to see this scene played out in an animated film. What do you think of this trailer? Chime in down below.
