‘Harley Quinn’ Kite Man spin-off ordered to series by HBO Max
kite manthe harley quinn fan favorite, gets its own spin-off show on HBO Max. Noonan’s is a ten-episode series that will follow Kite Man in all his silly high-flying glory. The spin-off is produced by harley quinn co-creators Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey, with Matt Oberg reprising his role as Kite Man.
Here is the synopsis of the series according to HBO Max:
The lovable loser Kite Man and his new team Golden Glider Moonlight as criminals to back up their senseless purchase of Noonan’s, Gotham’s seediest dive bar, where everyone knows your name, but not necessarily your secret identity!
harley quinn brought a new perspective to the Batman universe with its spotlight on characters that are usually overshadowed by characters like the Joker, the Riddler, and Catwoman. With its sharp comedy and villain-centric take, the series opened up the DC world in a brilliant way. Suzanna Makkos, executive vice president of original comedy and adult animation for HBO Max and Adult Swim, discussed the project in a statement.
“We love the wild and fun world of harley quinn so much so that we just had to do a spin-off and who better to center it than the outcast Kite Man. Justin, Patrick and Dean have created the perfect local hangout for Gotham City’s not-so-beautiful at Noonan’s, where bar patrons can let off steam after a long day of chaos.
Oberg took to Twitter to share his excitement saying, “The journey of a thousand kites begins with one kite. I can’t wait to start soaring. Shit yeah.
Schumacher joined in and said, “Fail up! (Fuck yeah!)
The executive vice president of alternative programming for Warner Bros. Animation, Peter Girardi, shared his thoughts on the show.
“harley quinn unlocked a world of hilarious possibilities with iconic Super Heroes and Villains from the DC Universe. Exploring this world further with our partners at HBO Max and DC is going to be a lot of fun. Also, after being dumped by Poison Ivy, the least we could do was give Kite Man his own show.
A Cheers-as the sitcom set in the Batman universe sounds like the perfect spin-off we didn’t know we needed. Kaley Cuoco and Sam Register will also executive produce the series, and Lorey will serve as showrunner. For now, we don’t know when Noonan’s will be published. harley quinn will return for its third season later this summer.
