New Harley Quinn trailer is full of expletives aimed at DC heroes

The show will hit DC Universe on Nov. 29

Susana Polo is an entertainment editor at Polygon, specializing in pop culture and genre fare, with a primary expertise in comic books. Previously, she founded The Mary Sue.

The latest trailer for the Harley Quinn animated series has a clear focus on an important issue facing many women today: Supervillain workplace empowerment.

Harley isn’t just pissed that the Joker doesn’t love her, she’s tired of playing second fiddle in schemes as well. She’s gonna form her own gang of other supervillains nobody believes can do the job, like King Shark and Doctor Psycho.

Harley Quinn, an original animated series for the DC Universe streaming service, is an adult comedy that’s been in the works for a while now. The show stars The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco as Harley Quinn, with Lake Bell (Children’s Hospital) as Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk (Firefly) as the Joker, and Tony Hale (Arrested Development) as Doctor Psycho. Also joining the voice cast are Wanda Sykes, Ron Funches, and Jason Alexander in yet unspecified roles.

Thanks to today’s tease, we also know when the show will premiere: Nov. 29.
