Patrick Schumacker, who is one of the co-creators of HBO Max’s Harley Quinn, teased a potential appearance by David Dastmalchian’s Abner Krill/Polka-Dot Man in Noonan’s.
In an interview with Insider, Schumacker teased Dastmalchian’s return to the role after the actor’s role in 2021’s The Suicide Squad, saying that he knows he’s a fan of the show and wants to do it. “Maybe there will end up being room for him on the spin-off or something,” Harley Quinn‘s co-creator teased. It’s not clear just how Polka-Dot Man might appear in the show or if he actually will.
What Is Noonan’s?
Noonan’s is a spinoff of Harley Quinn centered on Chuck Brown/Kite Man. In the series, Kite Man — who has broken up with Poison Ivy — and his new love interest, Golden Glider, buy the titular bar, which is one of Gotham City’s seediest hangouts. However, running a bar isn’t easy, and they’ve got to fund their venture through criminal activity. HBO Max officially ordered the series in April. However, since then, there’s been little news on Noonan’s.
In terms of casting, Matt Oberg will return as Kite Man, with Cathy Ang playing Golden Glider. Kaley Cuoco and Lake Bell will also reprise their roles as Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, respectively.
What Is Harley Quinn?
Created by Schumacker, Justin Halpern and Dean Lorey, Harley Quinn premiered in 2019 on DC Universe. A second season followed in 2020, and the show was soon renewed for a third installment. However, the third season also brought with it a switch from DC Universe, which was rebranded as DC Universe Infinite and stopped focusing on streaming series, to HBO Max. The show follows the titular Clown Princess of Crime when she strikes out to prove herself as a major criminal following her breakup with the Joker. Season 2 ended with Harley and her love interest, Poison Ivy, officially getting together, a relationship the creators have said won’t end while they’re in charge.
The first two seasons of Harley Quinn and three episodes of Season 3 are available to stream now on HBO Max. New episodes of the show’s third season air on Thursdays, with the next installment being “A Thief, a Mole, an Orgy” on Aug. 4. There’s no release date at this time for Noonan’s.
