“Batman and Harley, Joker and Ivy, Nightwing and Catwoman. Is there a
better cast of characters anywhere in fiction?” says Templeton. “I
spent some of the best years of my career working with these icons and
could not be happier to be returning to Gotham City and their
adventures. And to top it off, I get to work with the incomparable Rick
Burchett again! Pinch me, I’m dreaming. We’re getting the band back

willing to go for it!
“I spent quite a few years working with these characters in this art
style,” says Burchett. “It’s like visiting old friends. For me,
though, the best part is having the opportunity to work with Ty
Templeton again. It’s been way too long.”
The digital series will launch Monday, July 31, with the five chapters
being released bi-weekly.

About the movie:
In Batman and Harley Quinn, 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.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new,
feature-length animated film arrives August 15 on Digital and August
29 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray
Combo Pack and DVD.
