Batman: The Killing Joke is a 2016 American animated superhero film produced by Warner Bros. Animation and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. Featuring the DC Comics character Batman, the film is the twenty-sixth film in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. The film is directed by Sam Liu, written by Brian Azzarello and stars the voices of Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Tara Strong and Ray Wise. It is the first DC Universe animated film to have an R-rating.
The film premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 22, 2016. Originally intended to be released directly on home video, the film was instead released simultaneously in theaters, on home video, and digitally on July 26, 2016, before a DVD and Blu-ray release on August 2, 2016.
The film received negative or mixed reviews from critics. It was panned for its 30-minute non-canon prologue and its portrayal of Batgirl, especially for a sexual scene between the former and Batman. However, the content afterward was met with a more mixed reaction, with some praise for its faithfulness to the fan-favorite source material and voice acting, particularly Mark Hamill's performance as The Joker. It grossed $4.4 million worldwide.
