At the San Diego Comic Con last year, DC announced they would be making an animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. As one of the most popular books in the Batman mythos, The Killing Joke is known as being THE origin story for Batman’s biggest rival who is surrounded by a cloud of mystery. The dark and twisted story by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland is a Batman story but puts the focus on Joke, past and present.
DC has released the first teaser for the film, along with a sneak peek video at the making of the film, along with discussion by the crew about the book’s legacy in the comic world. The Killing Joke will premiere at SDCC this year, but no other information has been made available regarding its release.
Check out the teaser above and the sneak peek below.
