The Killing Joke is good but incredibly over rated. I can't see how an animated movie will work well, especially seeing as it was a very short story.

If Mark Hamill doesn't voice the Joker in this film I'll be pissed.

They HAVE to get Hamill for this. He has wanted this for years and I would be really dissapointed if my favorite graphic novel wasn't adapted the best possible way with Hamill.

So will he!

It'd be criminal not to cast Hamill in this flick, not to mention cruel.

Mark Hamill is indeed a must. He'd kill it.

As long as the aim to do Bolland's art justice and get Hamill on board then this could well be amazing. I'll be very frustrated if they rehash animation from their more recent animated disasters.

This could really be good. Probably better than Year One. I am not a big fan of the original but nonetheless, if they expand some of the scenes a little it could be an excellent film.

I hope it's like TDKR in that I like the movie better than the book.

I don't know if they'd do this but I hope they target this to adults. There is some heavy shit in Killing Joke and it would be a shame to tone it down.

Also I hope they keep it the Joker centric story that it is but also keep the relationship between Batman and The Joker the through line throughout.

I really can't see it not being targeted at adults.

What is their policy with animated films, do they do R-rated animatex films or an equivalent?

I don't think so, at least not when it comes to DC's animated movies. But take The Dark Knight Returns flicks for example, they were faithful to the source material and brutal as f*ck! I have faith that this adaptation will be no different.

This is a pleasant surprise. They gotta get Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill for this. I hope it turns out to be great.
