From Harley Quinn to Batgirl, Tara Strong Talks Batman: The Killing Joke (Interview)
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.
During our visit to San Diego Comic Con we sat down with former Harley Quinn, now Batgirl, Tara Strong. During the interview Strong talks about the differences between Harley and Barbara, the controversy behind Batman: The Killing Joke, and her role and mindset when portraying Batgirl.
