    What’s with the abrupt cuts in the video!?

    • Victor Thomas

      i thought that was only happening to me.

    • Vegas82

      If you look at the vid on youtube it appears they are glitches. The description apologizes for them.

    • Boogie

      Give the rights back to Marvel!

      • Paul Telesco

        Uhhh. marvel never had rights to the joker.

    • Buddy Da Mountain Child

      no, they are on purpose so that we will go slightly insane IMHO

    • Yeah, there’s a better one out there. Avoid any version that 12 minutes. There’s one that’s about 10 minutes long with no interruptions.

    Other than the obnoxious screen flashing/cut none-sense I loved this. I’ve been over the moon excited since I heard this news pop up last year and seeing how real it is now is totally mind boggling in the best way possible.

      Seriously can’t wait to hear mark hamill do the killing joke

  • Memorian

    Here it is without the glitches:

  • Deus Batman

    So Joker will know that Batman is Bruce Wayne in this?Interesting,I don’t remember him knowing that in the graphic novel

  • Cary David Hoffson

    It looks great and something to look forward to seeing and buying

  • Chuck Whitehead

    Please re upload this without the stupid purple flashes. It’s very annoying!!!

  • Whiskey Tango

    I wish the creative minds behind their animated films would be put in charge of the stories for the live action movies. Timm and Dini get these characters and know how to make them work. Im excited for this one!

  • What I’m curious about is whether or not the film will create the same kind of controversy that BvS created. Here are my three takeaways: http://www.aarondavidharris.com/2016/04/batman-killing-joke-three-takeaways.html
