Watch Batman: The Killing Joke First Trailer
  • The trailer for the Animated Feature Batman: The Killing Joke Released

The trailer for one of the darkest showdowns between Batman and The Joker gives the audience a glimpse of the R-rated animation movie.

It’s a great time to reach out to DC Comics fans who are hyped up on the Batman and Joker scenario because of the two releases featuring these two iconic characters including Batman in Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad.

Although there is not a typical showdown between the two in BvS and there is none predicted in the Suicide Squad, anyone having any qualms about this fantastical showdown should know that the 1988 Alan Moore scripted comic, Batman: The Killing Joke has been adapted by DC Comics and Warner Bros. as an animated feature film.

What you might typically call cartoons, it is the first movie of its kind to be given an R-rated status. According to reports, this status has been earned by the movie for its imagery and content which borders on psychotic and dark just like both of our characters.

The imagery and themes are much easier to portray and replicate in animation and that is why that studio chose to do this iconic novel in the animation genre.

Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprise their roles as Batman and The Joker as the plot of the story revolves around Joker taunting our dark caped crusader by kidnapping and torturing his allies. Batman must be in time to save Detective Gordon as his wife Barbara Gordon is injured and Batgirl.

The trailer starts with Batman visiting the Joker in jail where he is stacking the cards for solitaire. Batman tells him that he has been thinking about them both and which one of them would end up killing the other meanwhile we see Joker at a theme park and then having his gun on Batman when he gets speared through a mirror.

All the while we hear Joker’s sinister laughs taunting Batman, we see the alarmed expression on Batgirl’s face too. We see Joker laughing maniacally, holding his head, the Bat signal goes up in the air, Joker standing over a roller coaster model, Detective Gordon naked in a roller coaster bogey surrounded by bald, ugly looking over grown babies, he asks what he is doing here and the Joker says that he’s going mad.

In a flash, Gordon holds Barbara who is unconscious, there is a scene where the Joker is mad that his victim is not laughing and slaps them and then we see Joker’s mouth saying in a microphone that all it takes is one bad day and ends with the Joker’s sinister laugh.

Batman: The Killing Joke will world premiere at Comic-Con International in San Diego this summer, with a release on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD to follow later in the year. Watch the trailer below.
