Recently, at Wizard World Comic Con New Orleans, Timm spoke on The Killing Joke, revealing it will be premiering at SDCC 2016 (much as his previous DC project, Justice League Gods and Monsters, premiered at SDCC 2015), while adding he and team behind the animated The Killing Joke have added a good deal to the source material’s narrative;
“The one big difference about it, as opposed to those other projects (The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 & Part 2), is The Killing Joke… the source material is really not long enough to make an entire feature film out of, so we actually had to add a lot more story to it. Which is tricky. But I think we came up with a really good solution on how that worked.”
Watch Timm himself speak on the subject in the video below. Further details about The Killing Joke’s wide release have yet to be revealed.
