The Killing Joke to Receive R Rating

Batman: The Killing Joke will receive an R rating from the MPAA.

Warner Bros. latest animated film, based on the iconic Alan Moore graphic novella, is the second Batman film to earn an R rating, with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s extended Blu-Ray edition coming with an R rating because of added intense scenes of violence.

Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation, told Entertainment Weekly;

“From the start of production, we encouraged producer Bruce Timm and our team at Warner Bros. Animation to remain faithful to the original story — regardless of the eventual MPAA rating. The Killing Joke is revered by the fans, particularly for its blunt, often-shocking adult themes and situations. We felt it was our responsibility to present our core audience — the comics-loving community — with an animated film that authentically represented the tale they know all too well.”

The Killing Joke is a controversial comic, with some viewing it as misogynistic, with the torturing of Batgirl gratuitous and unnecessary. Others view it as the definitive origin story of the Clown Prince of Crime.

The film stars Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, reprising their roles as Batman and the Joker. The film will make its debut at Comic-Con in July and be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms later this year.
