1 min read


We know all about the violent glory that awaits us in the Batman V Superman: Ultimate Edition, but 2016 actually also boasts another R-rated tale involving the Dark Knight.

Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s 1988 graphic novel, “Batman: The Killing Joke”, is arguably the greatest comic book story ever involving Batman’s nemesis the Joker. It’s an extremely violent and shocking tale, highly controversial for its time. And the upcoming animated feature film adaptation is looking to follow suit as it will be the very first non-PG-13 DC Comics animated movie.

And today we finally have our first proper extended look at it as Yahoo have unveiled the first trailer. It’s just a green band trailer though, so none of that R-rated goodness yet, but it’s still looking pretty great. Check it out below.

Batman: The Killing Joke sees Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their respective Batman: The Animated Series voice roles as Batman and the Joker. There’s no exact scheduled release date yet for the movie, but it will be out later this year.
