This year at Comic-Con Hall H was not the only place generating a lot of excitement. Friday night in Ballroom 20 was creating quite a buzz among the attendees. This is because of DC’s new animated movie Batman: The Killing Joke which was premiering. One of the best graphic novels involving Batman and his arch-nemesis The Joker. What was also unique about this film was the rating it received. Usually most animated films get a G, PG, or maybe a PG-13 rating. Not this one, it was bumped up to a R rating. Sure with the content of the graphic novel I understand. The question is would the world comprehend it, and would they go see it.
The answer is yes! They came out in herds. Not because of the R rating or even the adaptation of one of the most iconic novel written by Alan Moore. They came out to hear Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill team up once again. The voices of Batman and The Joker.
At SDCC we got the chance to talk to legendary voice actor, Kevin Conroy about playing Batman one more time in this ultra dark and unsettling tale from Alan Moore. Listen and he recalls working with Hamill once more and what’s different about Batman: The Killing Joke
