With the Batman VS Superman hype dying down, DC is preparing a follow up blow to the masses by releasing a teaser for Batman : The Killing Joke. This story laid the groundwork for that lovable antagonist whom we all love to hate, the modern day Joker. It also delves deep into the iconic character’s psyche which is a twisted version of Batman himself.
Alan Moore wrote this marvelous story which tells how a once innocent nameless engineer fell into a pool of chemical waste and thus turning him into a disfigured, homicidal maniac. The Killing Joke has since been dubbed The Joker’s official origin story and served as an influence on both Jared Leto as well as the late Heath Ledger’s portrayals of the character.
A plus point is also added to this story. The Killing Joke will be starring two of Batman: The Animated Series alumni, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill.
Batman : The Killing Joke will be released sometime this Summer. For now, enjoy the teaser trailer below.
