Killing Joke Trailer

Trailer For 'Batman: The Killing Joke' Is Here!

By: Dave Clark

It was announced at SDCC that we'd be getting an animated adaption of the Alan Moore and Brian Bolland graphic novel, The Killing Joke. Recently we found out that the film would be rated "R", making it the first DC Universe Original property with such a rating. Now we get our first trailer! Check it out below:

I think this looks great. You can already see so many memorable scenes from the graphic novel fully brought to life in animated glory. What do you guys think? Are you excited for this movie? Do you think it needed the R rating? Are you worried about the backlash of the Barbara scenes? Sound off below!

Batman: The Killing Joke is set to be released in July of this year and stars Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Mark Hamill as The Joker, Tara Strong as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, and Ray Wise as Commissioner James Gordon.
