The Flash’s Final Season Trailer, Christina Ricci Is Harley Quinn (On A Podcast) & More

Spotify has announced its latest podcast set in the world of DC Comics, and it boasts an absolutely stellar cast. “Harley Quinn and The Joker: Sound Mind” will be headlined by Christina Ricci (“Yellowjackets”) as Harley Quinn, with Billy Magnussen (“Game Night”) as Joker. The ensemble also includes Justin Hartley as Bruce Wayne, Mary Holland as Margaret Pye aka Magpie, Elias Koteas as Nicky Qunzel, Fred Melamed as Bob, Stephen Root as Grunfeld, Andre Royo as Arnold Wesker aka The Ventriloquist, and Amy Sedaris as Harleen’s Aunt Rose. A synopsis for the show reads as follows:

We’ve heard Harley Quinn’s origin story — the one where she was manipulated into being The Joker’s doting, mad lover. But what if there’s more to it? What if there’s a Gotham City where Harley let The Joker believe she loved him, to get what she needed? When we meet Dr. Harleen Quinzel, she’s fresh out of grad school, a new psychologist at Arkham Asylum, determined to help the patients her colleagues have written off. But her dad is sick, and in need of an expensive, life-saving operation she can’t afford. Pushed to her breaking point, Harleen is tired of playing by the rules. So when she meets “Patient J,” a magnetic inmate able to manipulate everyone but her, Harleen makes a fateful decision: to use her relationship with The Joker to get what she wants, leading both of them down a dangerous path that will change them, Bruce Wayne, and Gotham City forever.

“Harley Quinn and The Joker: Sound Mind” arrives on January 31, 2023, with all seven episodes dropping at once for you binge-listening pleasure.
