San Diego Comic Con had some big reveals. One of them was that the comic Batman: The Killing Joke will be animated next in the DC Universe. Mark Hamill, ‘Joker’ voice actor legend, will return to voice the character. But the story of this particular comic is dark, and it begs the question: how dark can this one go on the big screen?
We know the origin story for most of all our superheroes: parents die, a kid gets bit by a spider, other people get sent to Earth, some are just rich ass sociopaths. And we’ve seen superheroes before they get their powers when they’re Just Like Us but what we rarely see is what life is like through the perspective of a parent of a superhero. If being a superhero is tough, raising one must be even harder.
