Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment have announced three new animated films that they will be developing. One of them includes an adaptation of a comic book that fans have been waiting for: Alan Moore's Batman: The Killing Joke.
During the Justice League: Gods & Monsters panel, Bruce Timm announced the following film projects, which were tweeted by DC Comics:
Here's a description of the comic for those of you who aren't familiar. If you haven't read the comic yet, you really need to!
According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as The Joker, that's all that separates the sane from the psychotic. Freed once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, he's out to prove his deranged point. And he's going to use Gotham City's top cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and his brilliant and beautiful daughter Barbara to do it.
Now Batman must race to stop his archnemesis before his reign of terror claims two of the Dark Knight's closest friends. Can he finally put an end to the cycle of bloodlust and lunacy that links these two iconic foes before it leads to its fatal conclusion? And as the horrifying origin of the Clown Prince of Crime is finally revealed, will the thin line that separates Batman's nobility and The Joker's insanity snap once and for all?
