This web series was originally teased way back in 2013 with Harley Quinn – Wait Til They Get A Load of Her featuring BOYS LiKE BRiTA!N as Harley Quinn. However, the actress/musician was no longer available when the series started filming. Watch the original web series teaser here …
My thoughts… With Harley Quinn – Web Series, creator Brandon Champ Robinson delivers, as promised, a re-imagined vision of the Gotham City siren! And, in Ep. 3, Robinson delivers a re-imagined vision of another Gotham City siren – Catwoman! I swore off the idea of an African-American actress playing Catwoman after suffering through Halle Berry’s dumb 2004 film! However, actress Sharon Ann has restored my faith! She makes an awesome Catwoman! In fact, I’d love to see a spin-off with that lovely black beauty! At the very least, I hope she returns in this cool series!
And, here’s a bonus Harley Quinn film (for Stars Wars fans!) …
