The Killing Joke is being animated and released this year.

I really hope they show us something soon, the last couple DC Direct films were pretty shit and I'm sick of this serialized style they keep using on the animated Bat films.

Bruce Timm helming it gives me hope, but I really wanna see a teaser or some character models soon. TKJ isn't even a long story either, how do you make something like it into a movie? It feels if they stuck with the source it would take like 30-40 minutes tops to finish.

Has Hamil said if he's coming back? All I've seen it his statements saying he'd definately do the voice given the chance for TKJ.

Anon, it is the CURRENT YEAR.

There is tons of pressure on DC to drop anything bad happening to Barbara:

http://fusion.net/story/175891/the-killing-joke-was-toxic-when-it-first-came-out-dc-doesnt-need-to-remake-it/

http://nothingbutcomics.net/2015/09/03/the-not-so-funny-killing-joke/

There is a definite non-zero change they'll cave and not include Babara getting shot. If they DO include it, it 's definitely due to Bruce Timm having some stones. After all, think of the pic related.

>Literally trying to erase the Killing Joke from DC canon because they're upset a bad thing happened to a character they like

I mean, I get it. Babs was pretty much fridged in that book, but who cares? Are these people also upset that Jason Todd was just used as another example of why the Joker is nuts and as a way to make Bruce ultra angsty? Sometimes characters you like are going to be used as narrative devices to tell a better story about the main characters, you just gotta deal with it.

This shit happening to Babs doesn't diminish all the other cool stuff she's done, it's not like she acted out of character or like a dumbass in that book, the situation was out of her hands. It kills me how they act like it absolutely NEEDS to be changed and that just them not watching it isn't an option.
>>
>>78851462
If they really wanted to appeal to them, Killing Joke would not get an adaptation. Timm already described the new story bit as a prologue, while also talking about how it's very accurate to the source material. I expect Barbara will have a bit in it as Batgirl for all the normies who wouldn't know her as anything but Gordon's daughter watching a straight adaptation.
>>
>>78851727
Not to mention, JAMES Gordon is ACTUALLY raped and tortured in the book, but that's just fine. Keep that in, who cares.

It's not art, it's violence. It is literally violence.

Depicting Barbara being violated in that context adds to the overall culture of sexual violence in society, perpetuating it into the real world.

Because that's art, man. Art is meant to evoke an variety of feelings, even negative ones. And that's okay. If you react negatively, and your first thought is to try and eliminate the art, then you are an emotional immature person.

All art should be preserved and protected.

I don't get the image.
>>
>>78852826
But what's the point of a piece of art that ONLY evokes negative feelings? There's no other purpose to this work.

Worthwhile art should ultimately be edifying. Making you uncomfortable to teach you something is one thing, but this is just doing it with no purpose and certainly no catharsis at the end. The work is ultimately pointless, and therefore, not worthwhile.

Now something being not worthwhile is one thing, bad art is everywhere, but this particular piece of bad, not worthwhile art is ALSO actively hurting people, so there's no reason to keep it around, and, indeed there's a moral imperative NOT to keep it around.

>>
>>78853059
This does have a point though? That's what makes it art. It conveys a message. You don't have to like it though. That's okay. It's okay to have a different opinion.

The ending is the cathartic part. Batman kills the Joker. It's the final Batman story. That's the point. But it's the same sort of round about point. That these stories will always go on, and that the Batman and the Joker will never die.
>>
>>78853246
Plenty of art depicts violence. That's the brutality of man. Even dadaism and surrealism depict the violence of man. It exists in art because it's a reflection of what happens in society. You can't suppress art because it makes you uncomfortable.

And as long as it's against other men, it's fine. Men are capable of defending themselves in kind. It becomes problematic when women are shown the be the victims, because when THAT is acted out on the real world, it has more serious consequences since women aren't as equipped to handle that sort of brutality from men.

People think Batman resting his hand on Joker's shoulder is him about to choke the Joker. Alan Moore spells it out in the script, and Brian Bolland's art is clear enough, his arm is well below the Joker's neck. The "abrupt ending" to the laughter applies to both Batman and Joker and is just their laughter being drowned out by the police sirens so the last panels can focus on the visual of the headlight/"flashlight" with Batman and Joker on either side.

Always thought this was a stupid notion. It seems pretty out of character for the Joker (outside of the seedy, depraved "Joker" graphic novel Joker) to be a rapist, and it's never implied at any point in Killing Joke. I think Alan Moore said something to the effect of "he didn't rape her, but if he did it would've been in the bullet hole."
>>
>>78854718
>>78854027
How about this. The icier, calmer, more dark and grounded color is about how Batman sees the world. Dark, bleak, depressing but more grounded in reality. The surreal, almost overly colorful is how the Joker views it, almost like an acid trip that he isn't fully aware of.

>So no one's going to comment on the fact that her bush is covered in blood? Not only did Joker rape her, he f***ing tore her apart. That's the key difference folks, not "just boobies". It's amazing that so few here fail to find that disturbing. Ask yourself the goddamn question - why is all the blood concentrated in the pubic region? If the answer doesn't disturb you, you're either sick or incredibly naive. DC made the right call in changing it; it's fair to say that some form of sexual assault was always implied, but this takes it into the realm of sexual mutilation, which many readers would prefer not to see.

What amazes me is that thoughts like this are commonly accepted as fact when all evidence suggests the exact opposite holds true. Places with more pornography have less rape. Since violent videogames hit the scene the violent crime rate in all developed countries has dropped like a fat man after his last mcnugget. Violence is inherent in human nature. Offering ways to indulge in that without harming others allows people to satiate their baser urges constructively rather than destructively.
