ArkhamCity.co.uk: Is Arleen coming back as the voice of Harley? Who is voicing Harley in Batman: Arkham City? No. HarleyQuinn is voiced by Tara Strong in Batman: Arkham City.
*takes one deep calming breathe* whew ok.... Isn't it bad enough that they are (imo) making Harley look more and more like a prostitute? I remember rolling my eyes at the first screenshot of her in Arkham City thinking (again imo) that this doesn't even resemble Harley but NOW it's not even going to sound like her. Don't get me wrong I'm very excited about this game. I'm just hoping that this one features less gratuitous upskirt shots of this deep multifaceted character. It's like not having Mark Hammil doing the Joker, or Kevin Conroy as The Batman. Just makes me less pumped for this game. STILL LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING IT THOUGH.
Absolutely agreed. I'm looking forward to the game but it really is a shame what they've done to Harley. She has such an iconic look, voice and such a great back story that it's kinda insulting to morph her into a bland hot teen goth-slut looking piece of eye-candy.
Your description of her in the game is more accurate than mine was haha. My ex-best friend got me into comic books and Harley was by far his favorite character. I guess I'm "protective" of her for that reason. @digitaleraser- exactly! you know, Batman looks like Batman, The Joker looks exactly like The Joker. Harley Quinn....
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the slutification of Harley Quinn in this series. What was wrong with her classic iconic outfit?
The Arkham series was made to be darker, more serious, and more mature than previous representations.
The best thing about arkham was the voice actors from the cartoon series. If they are scrapped for sound alikes like in pokemon ill be pissed. I dont support that bullshit and neither should anyone else.
I find myself very happy to among such a group of people who really are upset (just like I am) that they chose to make Harley Quinn a mindless Fake Gothic Whore instead of the deep, complex, and emotional head strong character that she really is. You can almost make an entire game just off of her experience and psyche alone. We have the whole entire Internet full of mindless Whores and Sluts so please stop dumbing female video game characters down into prostitutes and strippers.
I agree,, I hope she AT LEAST sounds like Harleys always sounded, But does Harley really look "slutty"? I think her first outfit (A.S) was alot more slutty (and unappealing) than this newer one, if you ask me this new outfit is more of a step in the right direction
I agree that the outfit is better, or more toned down at least. I guess maybe it was her "mask" or lack thereof ya know? I just don't like typing a crapload because I like having discussions with people like this.
Tara Strong is the female Nolan North of cartoons.
Tara Strong is a great voice actress and she should do a good job as Harley Quinn. Also, It seems I'm the only person who doesn't hate Harley Quinn's new look.
o_O I'm not upset about this like the rest of you, but lemme tell you why this makes little to no sense... Harley Quinn was originally voiced by Arleen Sorkin. Tara Strong voiced Batgirl... who is still in the game... as Oracle... ... wha???? Is Arleen Going to voice Oracle now?
Mixed feelings about this one. Harley was written into the the Batman Universe after her first appearance in The Animated Series, so Arleen Sorkin IS Harley. On the other hand, Tara Strong is a pro so I'm sure she'll do just fine. As for her look AC, if you've read all off the comics featuring Harley, her new look shouldn't bother you. Her outfits in the comics are wayyyyy sluttier than those featured in AA and AC. Panty shots and thongs popping out of skirts is nothing new. Besides that, the sexy nurse outfit made sense because you were in an insane asylum. I'm sure her next outfit will make since in AC as well.
That sucks but why? at least it's not voiced by an unknown.
I don't care about how Harley looks, what made me love the character, was Alreen Sorkin's voice work. Although a competent if not great voice actress, Tara has some HUGE shoes to fill.
I was only familiar with her Batgirl work but I think she'll do fine.
huh... at first i was a doubter like all the above, but after watching that i think she might do ok. she at least has some talent and can pull off a decent voice. Still wish it was Arleen Sorkin thou.
Arleen Sorkin is perfect and, after years of hearing her Harley, it's hard to imagine anyone else taking over. The same goes for all the original voices from Batman: The Animated Series. Having said that, I thought (actually still think) that Kevin Conroy is the perfect Batman voice yet Bruce Greenwood does a very good job on Young Justice and in Batman: Under the Red Hood.
