Batman Interrogates Joker in New Clip from BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE
DC Entertainment has released a new clip from the animated film adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. It debuted on an episode of DC All Access. In the clip, Batman confronts the Joker to talk to him about their dangerous relationship and how it will eventually lead to one of them killing the other. I am such a huge fan of this story, and I really hope this animated film is good. I’m a little worried because the more I see, the more I notice that the animation seems a little on the sloppy side. I’m still looking forward to seeing it, though. The clip in the video below starts at the 3:56 mark.
What does it take for a person to snap? How much despair for a mind to fracture? These are the twisted questions that The Joker has set out to answer, to show Gotham that even an ordinary man like Commissioner Gordon is only one bad day away from sheer insanity. Based on the acclaimed DC Comics graphic novel, witness a journey into the dark psyche of the Clown Prince of Crime. Follow his humble beginnings as a struggling comic to his fateful encounter with the Dark Knight that changed everything. Fueled by the return of Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker, witness the birth of a super villain, the fortitude of a hero and the punch line that will leave you speechless.
Batman: The Killing Joke is based on the 1988 graphic novel written by Alan Moore with art by Brian Bolland. It’s one of the best and most controversial Batman graphic novels ever published.
