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.
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.
It’s been a couple of days since you saw new photos of Jared Leto’s version of Joker, which means you probably just now stopped laughing about it (until we see more pics from Suicide Squad, anyway). But here’s something to interest (and maybe frighten) you: special effects master Rick Baker has created his own rendering of Joker, one that is not only great, but kind of unnerving — you know, the way Joker should look. It’s too bad we might never see this version on the big screen.
Joker fans can’t get enough of charting every facet of Jared Leto‘s transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, but what of Gotham’s take on Batman’s most famous foe? Rest assured, lone fan of Gotham, we’ll get a more formal Joker origin story early on in Season 2 this fall.
FOX’s Gotham detects its 16th installment in “The Blind Fortune Teller,” as Gordon investigates a murderous feud between circus performers and a certain jokester, while Fish Mooney attempts to negotiate her release, and Bruce brings accusations to the Wayne board members.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ recently revealed that an accelerated Joker origin would arrive before the Bat-prequel series' first finale, the upcoming “Red Hood“ introduction seeming a likely target, but the Clown Prince of Crime may arrive as soon as next Monday’s “Blind Fortune Teller.” Will ‘Shameless’ star Cameron Monaghan don the purple suit and makeup? We examine the evidence....
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ will take tonight’s installment to set up Bat-baddie “The Scarecrow,” but the biggest tease of all may lie ahead in the coming weeks, introducing the “Red Hood” gang to the future Dark Knight’s streets. Our first photos of the capering criminal gang have arrived, but might they be the seeds of our inevitable Joker arc?
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ will set up yet another Batman villain with tonight’s “The Fearsome Dr. Crane,” but it seems as if the most famous Bat-baddie of all may have his arrival scheduled even sooner than expected. Find out how ‘Gotham’ plans to introduce the Joker before season 1's end, straight from the executive producer himself!
The cat's out of the bag. 'BaneCat,' a spoof video featuring a feline dressed up as the infamous 'Dark Knight Rises' villain as he torments his owner with sadistic taunts, returns for 'BaneCat 2' ... and he's not alone.
We see a lot (a lot) of people cosplaying as various versions of the Joker from the Batman films, and even though the Heath Ledger version from Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' is pretty popular, you'd be hard-pressed to find a cosplayer who does it better than this guy.
