Diehard Batman fans are in for a treat on this one. If you’re one of those people, make sure you’re subscribed to Netflix until the end of October––and I’m not just talking about some Halloween specials. The hit 2016 release Batman: The Killing Joke will be coming to the streaming platform in October 2020. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming film!
Batman: The Killing Joke is a story starting from when the Joker has escaped the Gotham asylum. However, instead of a normal man’s effort to run into the wilderness and be free, he plans to prove a point by attacking the Gordon family while he himself falls into his own demise, madness, and overall craziness.
Thankfully, Sam Liu has directed the film as if there was any director to know all the things Batman-movie related, it’s this guy. He’s responsible for most animated Batman projects including 2004 to 2008’s The Batman and Beware The Batman. After receiving positive reviews, this man is well-deserving of the directing spot for this film four years ago.
The cast boasts of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as Joker, Tara Strong as Batgirl, and Barbara Gordon. Alongside them are Brian George, John DiMaggio, Ray Wise, and Robin Atkins Downes as their fellow voicing talents.
As part of the October 2020 release list, it has been confirmed that the full movie will be hitting the streaming platform on the 15th of October, 2020.
However, the question remains as to why it isn’t on HBO Max considering that most of the titles have been featured on HBO Max. However, titles such as The Killing Joke continue to be licensed out as part of pre-existing contracts.
Eventually, however, it’ll come to HBO’s streaming platform soon enough. Warner Brothers, on the other hand, is still licensing out their content to other providers.
