The following story contains spoilers for The Killing Joke! You have been warned...

Arguably no comic book character has a library of iconic stories that rivals that of Batman. Over the years the Caped Crusader has been on numerous adventures across page and screen, with each one adding to his increasingly legendary mythos. However, we will soon get the most highly anticipated Batman adaptation to date when DC animation finally brings us the long-awaited, R-rated version of Batman: The Killing Joke.

We really cannot understate how excited we are for The Killing Joke to finally be committed to film. Alan Moore's iconic graphic novel set the standard for Batman stories, and the movie version will bring back the amazing Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill into their respective roles as Batman and The Joker. We're sure that the movie will have more than a few surprises, but we've compiled a list of 10 key moments from The Killing Joke that need to happen in the upcoming movie. It's a dark and dreary tale of violence and death, so we hope you're ready for No. 1:

Batman's Initial Plea To Joker

Alan Moore's iconic graphic novel, Batman: The Killing Joke doesn't begin with a bombastic action scene or a brutal fistfight. It begins with civil (if one-sided) conversation. Batman realizes that he simply can no longer continue fighting The Joker like this. The two of them find themselves on a collision course, and they both know that someone eventually will break and die. Batman's initial plea to the Clown Prince of Crime shows that The Dark Knight cares about the well being of even his most hated foe, and that he wants to try one more time to reform this eternal villain. It's a beautiful moment, albeit soured by the fact that he's sitting across from an imposter Joker.
