Warner Bros. officially releases the first “Batman: The Killing Joke” animated movie trailer!

Hitting Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Media later this year, Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's seminal and controversial entry into the Batman mythos finally comes to life in animated film form, as the first official trailer for "Batman: The Killing Joke" shows that this movie will test the boundaries of the Dark Knight and Clown Prince of Crime's rivalry once and for all.


“All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy.”

And sure enough, that happened to some poor down on his luck comedian who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time… Turning him into the craziest and most psychotic villain the world has ever known and becoming the mortal enemy of a certain Dark Knight detective determined to play his opposite and bring him in by the book.

That pretty much describes the premise of “Batman: The Killing Joke” – Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s critically acclaimed contribution to the Batman mythos that explores one of the greatest mysteries of all time – the possible origin of The Joker.


Fans have begged for an animated movie adaptation of this masterpiece from DC Comics, and now it will indeed be coming later this year in Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Media… Featuring the iconic voice talents of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their roles as Batman and The Joker respectively!
