The Killing Joke is one of the most iconic, dark comic tales to ever hit the the shelves of book stores.

Many Batman aficionados consider to be the best Bats-related thing ever created, placing it even above Christopher Nolan's films. 

So even though we're not getting a live-action version, which would be truly incredible – provided Zach Snyder isn't involved – this animated retelling looks flat-out fantastic. As an added bonus, this movie is clearly made for adults and not children, with a hard R rating for language and violence.

The movie drops on VOD platforms later this year but an official release date hasn't been announced yet.
