Now that we’re within reaching distance of Batman and Harley Quinn‘s home video release, some may argue that this may very well be the most difficult time of the waiting period. That being said, the folks at Warner Bros. have decided to kindly tide us over with yet another clip from the highly anticipated animated film.
Thanks to DC All Access, we’ve been granted a closer look at a scene featuring Harley outside of her familiar jester costume. And even though seeing such a thing is nothing new these days, especially thanks to the Suicide Squad movie, it’s quite notable in this case because Bruce Timm and company have otherwise decided to conform to the visual precedent set by The New Batman Adventures, probably much to the delight of the more nostalgic among you out there.
And although the threads the Clown Princess of Crime are donning in the clip provided don’t mirror what we’ve seen in the New 52 and Rebirth comics, we can’t help but think it’s a nod to the many costume changes she’s gone through in recent years. Still, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for something more inspired by Amanda Conner’s art in future animated flicks.
Despite its brevity, the scene glimpsed shows us that Melissa Rauch’s Harley doesn’t take crap from anyone, especially rude guys who can’t keep their hands to themselves. Quite frankly, we’d expect no less from any iteration of this character, but it’s reassuring to see that she hasn’t lost her edge.
Batman and Harley Quinn is set to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on August 29.
