The Kite Man Trailer Is Now Flying Around

One week after we learned Max’s Harley Quinn spinoff Kite Man: Hell Yeah! would be premiering on the service in July, we’ve received the first full trailer for the show. Normally release dates and trailers are handed down as a pair, but not this time.

As I’ve written many times by now, the Kite Man show runs on the premise that the Man With The Kite has purchased Noonan’s, re-theming it as the bar for all the bad guys who go unappreciated. As he puts it, “the big supervillains are all sitting pretty in their lairs. But this place is for the henches, the goons….the place for the rest of us! Where everyone around you loves you!” And knows your name?

I noticed last week Keith David had replaced Michael Ironside as Darkseid, but it’s been pointed out that isn’t the only cast change. There are quite a few, in fact. When Golden Glider first appeared in the Harley Quinn Valentine’s Day Special, she was voiced by Cathy Ang, not Stephanie Hsu.

Giancarlo Esposito was Lex Luthor in all previous appearances on HQ but this time, he’s Lance Reddick (a role not to be repeated, as the man is now dead). Queen of Fables was originally Wanda Sykes, but here is Janelle James. You can’t tell me it was too hard to get Wanda Sykes back. She’s in everything!

The full cast list for Kite Man reads as follows: Matt Oberg as Kite Man, Stephanie Hsu as Golden Glider, 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, Lance Reddick as Lex Luthor, and most unexpected of all, Judith Light as the mysterious “Helen Villigan.”

The first two episodes of Kite Man: Hell Yeah! will premiere on Max July 18, with new episodes appearing on Thursdays through September 12.
