Batman: The Killing Joke (film)

Batman: The Killing Joke is an upcoming animated film directed by Sam Liu (Planet Hulk, Justice League: Gods and Monsters) and produced by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series). It is based on the 1988 graphic novel The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, and is the 26th installment in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line of direct-to-video films.

In The Killing Joke, the Joker (Mark Hamill) recalls the twisted past that made him the insane murderer he is, and sets out to prove to Batman (Kevin Conroy) that all it takes is "one bad day" to turn a man evil. He tries to prove it by antagonizing Barbara and James Gordon (Tara Strong and Ray Wise) and subjecting them to torture, in hopes of making them mad like him. The film will also add an extra 15 minute prologue to flesh out the story.

Batman: The Killing Joke is the first movie in the DC Animated Movies line to be rated R by the MPAA, for "some bloody images and disturbing content". It will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, and hit Blu-ray and DVD later this year.

The DC animated movies have had a pretty sterling track record, and The Killing Joke is one of the most important comics ever written, especially for the DC Universe and Batman in general. And the R rating proves they aren't playing nice with the adaptation. I'm excited.
