Based on Alan Moore’s game-changing graphic novel of the same name, the film will follow Batman as he races to save friend and confidant, Jim Gordon, from the sadistic clutches of the Joker and his madness-inducing terror carnival. Over the past two decades plus, the comic has garnered both appreciation and controversy, due to specific narrative elements. Originally written and released as a one-off story, the work has since become canon… again, thanks to specific narrative elements, that won’t be spoiled here. A couple of years ago, the discussion regarding the work’s ambiguous ending was reignited by statements Alan Moore made in an interview.
Hamill also unveiled the film’s first image:
Hamill and Conroy’s last go at the duo together was in last summer’s release of Batman: Arkham Knight. The game offered the Joker actor a special and unique performance of the character. A performance that has earned Mark Hamill a BAFTA nomination for Best Performer.
More news and a first-look is expected to be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2016.
