Batman: The Killing Joke Receives R Rating

What’s going on Nation? I hope you’re having a happy Friday. Anyway, it was announced that the upcoming film adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke will receive a Rated R rating. Try saying that ten times fast. To quote Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation & Warner Digital Series as to why they’ve received this rating.

“The Killing Joke is revered by the fans, particularly for its blunt, often-shocking adult themes and situations. We felt it was our responsibility to present our core audience — the comics-loving community — with an animated film that authentically represented the tale they know all too well.”

So way to go fans? I’m surprised it didn’t receive a PG-13 rating given that they’re so many things you can do in a PG-13 film nowadays. That said let me know what you think down below or on Twitter. Be sure to stick with Herotaku for all the news you care about. I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
