Batman’s ‘The Killing Joke’ Comic to Become an Animated Movie

by Britt Hayes July 11, 2015 @ 11:42 AM
The Killing Joke is one of the more notable entries in Batman comic book history, offering one of the most sadistic versions of the Joker to date. Alan Moore’s book is one of the more divisive among fans, who either love it or despise it, and in further proving their commitment to the darker side of superhero stories, DC is taking The Killing Joke and adapting it…into an animated feature, of all things.

After a few months of seeing images from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, we’re all pretty much on the same page with our expectations: street thug Joker, Hot Topic Harley Quinn, various dudes with ‘tudes and an aesthetic that’s like “what if there was a goth gang on the east side?” Nerdist has put together a fake trailer that’s basically exactly what you think the first trailer for Suicide Squad is going to be. It is, as the Squad says, sick.

‘Gotham’ Star Cameron Monaghan Basically Confirms His Role as the Joker

by Britt Hayes July 9, 2015 @ 1:51 PM
There was a whole lot of wishy-washy nonsense surrounding Cameron Monaghan’s role as Jerome in Gotham Season 1. Was he FOX’s Bat-prequel version of the Joker or wasn’t he? Executive producer Bruno Heller teased the arrival of Batman’s most famous villain in Season 1, but backtracked later to say we would see a “pre-embryonic” origin story of the character in Season 2. But according to a photo posted by Monaghan, we may have been misled — or not. I don’t know. This is getting out of hand.

Troubled though FOX’s Gotham may be, Season 2 has set some strong talent to help facilitate Bruce Wayne’s batty origins. Following the addition of one major big bad, Gotham Season 2 has cast both Jessica Lucas in the role of DC’s Tigress, as well as The Goldbergs star Dustin Ybarra in a recurring role as a hungry new villain.

‘Gotham’ Season 2 Casts James Frain as Big Bad Brother to DC’s Tigress

FOX’s Gotham has thus far focused on elevating its existing cast to Season 2 regulars, but with Jada Pinkett’s Fish Mooney out of the picture, Batman’s hometown needs a new villain, or two.
