Hey folks! As we all now know, We are finally getting an animated retelling of BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE!
Mark Hamil is already signed to reprise his role as the Joker, and Kevin Conroy shouldn’t be to far behind to return as Batman. My only hope is that they don’t fuck it up by incorporating it in to their New DCU animated universe.. Please god do let them do that! But, that’s for another blog.. So! With that.. Here’s a list of ‘The Top 5 Batman Stories That Should Be Made in to Animated Films’ (In no particular order)
The thrilling mystery behind the identity of Hush, the countless guest stars and the twist and turns of the story itself would make for a great movie. Making it a Two Part Feature like The Dark Knight Returns film, would work great to tell the HUSH story to its full potentiol.
4. THE LONG HALLOWEEN
Another great mystery thriller by the great Jeph Loeb. The scope of this story would also require for it to be a Two-Parter, but I’m sure they could probably find a way to shave it down without sacrificing the core story.
One of the pivotal moments in the life of Batman. The Story of Bane breaking the batman, both physically and mentally. The fall of the Dark Knight, The rise of Azreal,
Azreal’s decent into madness, and The Batman’s Return to take down Azreal and take back his mantle.. I dare you to tell me you don’t wanna see that.. I. Dare. You!
Batman… on Drugs… Not your typical animated DCU Feature.. But one I believe deserves its chance to be told in such a manner. With Killing Joke getting its moment on the spotlight. Perhaps Venom could be close behind.
1. THE COURT OF OWLS!
“But, Wait?! Didn’t we already get a Court Of Owls movie?!?” NO!!! That was NOT the court of owls! That was some sort of.. ELSEWORLDS crap fest! I’m talking about a REAL, Court Of Owls film. A true retelling of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Masterpiece, the way it was and IS supposed to be told!
