The Killing Joke Might Be Rated R


It was announced today at the New York Comic Con panel for Batman: Bad Blood by James Tucker that The Killing Joke was given the green light to be made as an R Rated film.

Considering how close Batman: Assault on Arkham got to an R Rating, it would be interesting to see what more they can do with the story. It was made clear later that James Tucker said that while he is given the okay to make an R Rated film, he is not sure that he actually will make it R.

Personally don’t think we have to have The Killing Joke be Rated R, but what is exciting is that if they are willing to change it up on these Animated Film.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
