First Batman: The Killing Joke Trailer Officially Released

The first trailer for Batman: The Killing Joke, the next DC Comics animated movie from Warner Bros Animation and Warner Home Entertainment was released Tuesday night. The trailer features Mark Hamill's return to The Joker and Kevin Conroy's return to Batman, roles the pair have played together off and on since the early 90s Batman: The Animated Series.

The trailer's dialogue is pulled word for word from the comic book by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, with Batman's monologue of "I've been thinking..." The Joker's only line of dialogue in the trailer is the ominous, "All it takes is one bad day..." which is him describing the difference between Batman and himself.

The film has received an R Rating, a first for DC's animated films.


Batman: The Killing Joke is expected on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD in July 2016.
