With the animated Harley Quinn series heading to DC Universe later this year, now comes word on a new addition for the animated adventures of Harleen Quinzel.
Via Blackfilm, it’s been revealed that Sanaa Lathan will be lending her vocals to the show’s take on Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Lathan – best known for her voice work on the likes of Family Guy and The Cleveland Show – announced the news at the American Black Film Festival.
No specifics are known at this stage on just what role Catwoman will have to play in Harley Quinn, but expect plenty of claws ‘n’ whips as Harleen embarks on her mission to join the Legion of Doom.
Already on board to voice the titular Maid of Mischief is Kaley Cuoco, with the Big Bang Theory star being joined by Lake Bell as Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk as The Joker, Diedrich Bader as Batman, and undisclosed roles for Wanda Sykes, Jason Alexander, Jim Rash and Giancarlo Esposito.
Harley Quinn will premiere on the on-demand DC Universe streaming service at a to-be-confirmed date later this year.
