Batman - The Killing Joke Trailer is Here!

Batman: The Killing Joke is coming this year! DC has released a first look at the animated film with the teaser trailer below!

The Killing Joke was created by Alan Moore, as his own take on Joker's source and psychology and it became famous for its origin of the Joker as a tragic character; a family man and failed comedian who suffered "one bad day" that finally drove him insane. Moore stated that he attempted to show the similarities between the two characters. The story's effects on the mainstream Batman continuity also included the shooting and paralysis of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, an event that laid the groundwork for her to develop the identity of Oracle.

Batman: The Killing Joke is expected to premiere at San Diego Comic-Con in July, and it may even get the first R-rating in Batman's cinematic history. Via Polygon
