Marvel and DC have a really interesting difference between the two when it comes to creating moving versions of their comic books. DC seems to have trouble creating great live action films, but knocks it out of the park when it comes to their animated fare, and Marvel is almost the exact opposite.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Marvel animated feature or series that blew me away, but DC has don ea great job with the majority of their animated releases. Now, with the first trailer out to the R-Rated animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke, starring Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker, it’s looking like a good chance that they’ll continue their streak.

As Batman hunts for the escaped Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime attacks the Gordon family to prove a diabolical point mirroring his own fall into madness.
