“Kite Man and Golden Glider take their relationship to the next level by opening a bar in the shadow of Lex Luthor’s Legion of Doom. Nobody said serving cold ones to the most dangerous rogues outside of Arkham Asylum would be easy, but sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and how to hide a body,” reads the show’s official logline.
Matt Oberg will reprise his role of Kite Man that originally debuted in “Harley Quinn” while Stephanie Hsu will star alongside him as Golden Glider. Rounding out the cast of “Kite Man” is James Adomian as Bane, Natasia Demetriou as Malice, Janelle James as Queen of Fables, Jonathan Banks as Noonan, Keith David as Darkseid, Michael Imperioli as Joe/Moe Dubelz, Rory Scovel as Gus the Goon, the late Lance Reddick as Lex Luthor, and Judith Light as Helen Villigan.
“Kite Man: Hell Yeah” is executive produced by “Harley Quinn” co-creators Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey, in addition to “Harley Quinn” star Kaley Cuoco. Sam Register also executive produces while Lorey serves as showrunner. The show is based on characters from DC and produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
“We love the wild and fun world of ‘Harley Quinn’ so much we just had to make a spin-off and who better to center it around than the outcast Kite Man,” said Suzanna Makkos, executive vice president of original comedy and adult animation for HBO Max and Adult Swim. “Justin, Patrick, and Dean have created the perfect local hangout for Gotham City’s not-so-finest at Noonan’s, where bar patrons can blow off steam after a long day of mayhem.”
