When The Joker returns to Gotham City to destroy former Batman Bruce Wayne, a new Dark Knight rescues his mentor and discovers the truth about a seemingly immortal villain. After a 40-year absence, The Joker invades Bruce Wayne's estate, revealing his knowledge of Wayne's past secret identity. The Joker nearly kills his nemesis, but Batman, alias Terry McGinnis, Wayne's protégé, saves Wayne's life for now. Pressured by Terry to divulge the truth, Commissioner Gordon retells the events of the night she witnessed the total annihilation of the psychopathic Joker. So how can the Clown Prince of Crime be alive? Will this inexperienced Batman meet The Joker's challenge? Bruce Wayne's life depends on it in the action-packed animated adventure Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: This feature length entry in the Batman Beyond mythos sends off the Mark Hamill-voiced Joker in thrilling fashion, hitting the same caped crusading peaks of the original series.

Joker's back in dark animated tale with cartoon violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker is a 2000 animated feature in which The Joker, believed to have been killed four decades before, returns to wreak new havoc on Gotham City. Expect cartoon violence, including fighting with gas bombs, guns, laser guns, punching, kicks. Characters shot and killed. Peril, as characters fall off building rooftops before getting rescued by Batman. In a flashback scene, a Batman-in-training is kidnapped by The Joker and Harley Quinn and tied to a table in the abandoned Arkham Asylum, where he's tortured until driven to madness. Champagne drinking, drinking in a nightclub. Joker briefly uses a pipe as a prop. While enjoyable on its own terms, this story of heroes and villains past and present is most likely to appeal to superfans.
