Watch the Trailer for the Cartoon Adaptation of ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’

The Killing Joke Hahahahaha Joker

For inexplicable reasons, Alan Moore’s disturbing Batman graphic novel The Killing Joke is being adapted into a full length movie — a straight to video animated movie.

And despite its more adult subject matter, long-running Batman and Joker voice-actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are both on board.

You can watch the official trailer below, which also stars Ray Wise as Commissioner Gordon and Tara Strong as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, who will allegedly be treated with more respect in this adaptation.

Not gonna lie though, the artwork definitely pales in comparison to the original source material and even the other Batman cartoons.

As Batman hunts for the escaped Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime attacks the Gordon family to prove a diabolical point mirroring his own fall into madness.

Stars: Kevin Conroy, Ray Wise, Mark Hamill, Tara Strong
