On Screen: The Killing Joke

During the World Premiere of Bruce Timm’s animated feature of Justice League: Gods and Monsters during Friday Night San Diego Comic Con International panel. Bruce Timm announced that he would be back again in 2016 to bring us his version of The Killing Joke.

The Killing Joke Written by Allen Moore and drawn by Brian Bolland is a possible origin story for the Joker. In this version, he is a failed comedian who gets involved with a desperate criminal scheme. Batman foils their plans, leaving the Joker disfigured, embittered, and insane. This is also the story in which Barbara Gordon is paralyzed, eventually leading her to become Oracle.

Casting has yet to be announced, but Mark Hamill has expressed interest during the 2011 San Diego Comic Con that he would LOVE to voice the Joker if they ever did an animated feature.
