Batman: The Killing Joke Coming As An Animated Movie

01-cover

Following the release of Justice League: Gods and Monsters, the next DC Entertainment animated feature will be Batman: The Killing Joke.

Due out in 2016, the story will be an adaptation of the controversial and acclaimed original graphic novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. In the comics, The Joker escapes Arkham, shoots and paralyzes Barbara Gordon in order to terrorize her father, Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.

There’s no word yet on casting — the film itself was just announced by Bruce Timm at the Comic Con International: San Diego panel for Justice League: Gods and Monsters — but veteran Joker actor Mark Hamill has said in the past that he would un-retire the character for an adaptation of The Killing Joke.

Other animated films announced for 2016 – Batman: Bad Blood featuring Batwoman, and Justice League vs Titans.
