Harley Quinn - Pop Jedi Digs In Ahead Of This Week's THE SUICIDE SQUAD Release
After celebrating the 35th anniversary of Aliens, Pop Jedi is back this week with more pop culture news and an analysis of Harley Quinn ahead of the release of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
Pop Jedi is back after visiting the hostile planet LV-426 with their Aliens 35th anniversary celebration! The crew is devoting two weeks to one of the most popular female characters in comic-dom with an in-depth look at Harley Quinn.
The unhinged anti-hero's history and origins are explored in this episode, and next week, they follow it up with a review of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, which lands in theaters this Friday.
Harley Quinn was first introduced to the world in Batman The Animated Series in 1992. As the Joker's abused and devoted right-hand, Harley became an instant icon. She came into her own when she was introduced on the page as a former psychiatrist turned brilliant, but mad, villainess, and has dominated television, animated films, and video games ever since.
The character was taken to the next level when Margot Robbie stepped into the live-action role in 2016's Suicide Squad, her spin-off solo film Birds of Prey (originally titled Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), and now James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
Join hosts Rob DiLauro, JennaSayWhat, and Di Marie when they honor and psychoanalyze the history of one Harley Quinn in episode 24 (included below).
Join the Pop Jedi crew next week as they analyze Harley Quinn and join the battlefield with The Suicide Squad!
