Greetings Bat Geeks!
We are finally getting an adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland‘s ‘The Killing Joke‘ and it stars none other than Mark Hamill as the enigmatic Joker and Kevin Conroy as Batman! Regarded as one of the most important and darkest Joker stories ever told, the film has earned an “R” rating for it’s bloody images and disturbing content.
Check out the trailer below!
It looks to be a faithful adaptation, including several iconic shots from the original comic book, but the movie will also include a never before seen 15 minute prologue. There’s no information on what that prologue will include, but my guess is that it will help pad out Batgirl’s role. In the original comic, she was used more as a plot device, so hopefully they’ll give her a bit more to do in this version.
Watching the trailer gives me chills! Mark Hamill is the Joker and this could very well be his last performance as the Clown Prince of Crime! He always said he’d love to do this story…so here we go geeks! DC Animated looks like they did it right! What do you think of the trailer?
