While we had a pseudo first trailer for this a few weeks ago made by a fan, this is the first legit and official trailer for Batman: The Killing Joke and it is amazing.
The animated adaptation of the graphic novel features Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their iconic roles as Batman and the Joker from the ‘90s animated series which is amazing in and of itself. But what really shines is the story it self and how the trailer already appears like the film will bring it alive.
Not to mention how unique this film is. Not only is the animation style one we haven’t seen in probably decades but it is also an animated film that is rated R. That is something we almost NEVER see. And it isn’t rated R for cursing or nudity or anything like that, but for the dark and adult themes which makes this even rarer. That is what is giving fans such high hopes and expectations for this adaptation. It seems to be everything we wanted.
Let’s hope it holds a candle to our expectations.
Batman: The Killing Joke will premiere at San Diego Comic Con in July. Its wider release date has yet to be announced. You can watch the trailer below.
