James Gunn Will Guest Star on HBO Max’s ‘Harley Quinn’ as Himself

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn will guest star on Harley Quinn.

According to /Film, Harley Quinn co-creator Patrick Schumacker revealed that Gunn will appear in Season 3 of the DC comic book show in a very meta cameo.

“He is playing himself,” he teased. “And [he] is directing a movie about Thomas Wayne.” Unfortunately, little else is known about Gunn’s cameo.

It sounds though, true to form, Harley Quinn will be getting a very meta appearance from the director who brought her to the big screen in the form of Margot Robbie. And a movie about Thomas Wayne could give Gunn plenty of room to have fun with the role.

After a wacky Season 2, it looks as though Season 3 is going to really up the ante, bringing some new episodes that long-time DC fans will love – especially for fans of the old Batman cartoons.

“We have an episode that’s a big love letter to ‘Batman: The Animated Series'” said Schumacker. “We even got some original backgrounds from the show that we use in the episode.”

It’s unclear when Season 3 will debut – Schumacker only says it’s coming “soon”. But the adults-only animated show is making plenty of fans with its off-kilter brand of comedy.

Elsewhere, Harley Quinn’s Kite Man will be starring in his own spin-off – a show that’s described as “Cheers for villains” which sees him running a bar where supervillains hang out.

IGN’s Harley Quinn Season 2 review says: “the series looks to be even stronger in its sophomore outing. The new status quo and a stronger emphasis on Gotham’s villains help create a darker tone while still delivering all the zany, deep-cut DC humor fans could ask for. Season 2 may well succeed where Birds of Prey never quite did – exploring what happens when Harley sets out to become her own woman.”

Kaley Cuoco stars as Harley Quinn alongside Alan Tudyk, Lake Bell, Rahul Kohli, Diedrich Baker, Tony hale, Matt Oberg, and Ron Funches.
