Warner Bros. is working on an animated film called Batman and Harley Quinn, and it will have Batman, Nightwing, and Harley teaming up to stop a global disaster. Kevin Conroy, who famously voiced Batman in the animated series and Arkham games, is set to return, but the studio is looking to cast someone else to voice Harley Quinn.

According to Empire, The Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch will be providing the voice of Harley Quinn. It's weird that she would be cast in the role as Tara Strong has famously voiced Harley for the Arkham games and other animated series. No doubt Warner Bros is wishing to bank on Rauch's fame to boost interest in the movie.

In an interview, Rauch said:

"I love that Harley is a badass and, beyond that, that she uses her humor as another weapon in her arsenal… She knows just how to diffuse a situation with her humor, and how to incite a situation with her sarcasm. It's a dream role."

As for the story, Batman and Nightwing (Loren) are said to be teaming up with Harley (Rauch) in order to stop Poison Ivy (Paget Brewster) and the Plant-Master Jason Woodrue from launching a global catastrophe. My best bet is that Harley is asked to tag along since she has a close friendship with Ivy in the comics.

Batman and Harley Quinn is getting a release this summer on Blu-Ray and DVD.
