The Killing Joke, one of the most regarded and highly controversial comic book stories ever told. The new trailer for the R-rated animated adaptation suggests that they’ll be no compromising.
The animated adaptation from DC Comics and Warner Bros., brings the pages of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s award-winning 1988 graphic novel to life.
The movie looks to pull directly out of the comic book and comes close to the artistic style that distinguishes The Killing Joke from other comic titles.
Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill return to voice Batman and The Joker, re-teaming from their days on the Batman: The Animated Series.
Batman: The Killing Joke is expected to make its premiere at the San Diego Comic-Con later this year before coming to Blu-ray and home video sometime later this year.
As Batman hunts for the escaped Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime attacks the Gordon family to prove a diabolical point mirroring his own fall into madness.
