I cannot wait to see the new Batman animated film Batman: The Killing Joke (2016), especially now since Mark Hamill has been confirmed to voice The Joker. Warner Bros. Animation made the right choice to bring Hamill back into The Joker role; he is The Joker. This story is based on the novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. The Joker escaped from Arkham Asylum and shot Barbara Gordon to terrorize her father Jim Gordon. This story also brings into play the Joker origin and has been one of the best novels ever created.
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?
