You probably have heard the news that DC and Warner Bros. Animation will be making a Batman: The Killing Joke movie. The movie will be a direct-to-video movie, just like the rest of their animated movies.
The Killing Joke comic is an iconic and very popular Joker story. The fact they are going to make it into an animated movie will have fans of the serious jumping for joy. If that wasn’t enough good news, it looks like Mark Hamill will be returning to voice the Clown Prince of Crime.
The Joker has been played and voiced by several actors over the years, but most fans agree that Hamill’s creepy and haunting take on The Joker is their favorite.
This news comes on the back of a previous report that Hamill will reprise his role as The Joker in the Arkham video game franchise.
The movie Batman: The Killing Joke won’t be a direct panel-for-panel recreation. But given DC’s track record with its animated films, it won’t stray too far off from the comics.
For those who aren’t too familiar with the story, it will follow the origins of how The Joker got his start. Which offers an interesting insight to a man who past is often not explored.
No word on when but I know I’m excited!!!
