Mark Hamill Reportedly Voicing The Joker In Batman: The Killing Joke

Mark Hamill will reportedly voice The Joker for Batman: The Killing Joke, the upcoming animated feature film from DC Entertainment. 

Hamill will reprise the role of Batman’s arch-nemesis after saying that he had retired the character. As  most know, Hamill voiced The Joker through Batman: The Animated Series, the Batman Arkham video games, and other projects. When Warner Bros announced at San Diego Comic Con that they would bring the Joker-centric graphic novel to life, Hamill said that he would come out of retirement to voice the Joker in that film. 

For those not in the know, The Killing Joke is considered by many as the ultimate Joker story. Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland in the late 1980s, the story became famous for offering a possible origin story for the Joker. 

Are you excited that Hamill is returning to The Joker? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Reportedly? This is one of those things where it's Hamill or no go!

  2. I should have seen that coming since he's voiced Joker before but I'm happily surprised. Hamill's had a rather impressive career as a voice actor anyway.

  3. As I believe he's said the only he WOULD voice the Joker again is in an adaptation of The Killing Joke, this makes complete and total sense.

    Mark Hamill is to Kevin Conroy; like bat peas in a pod.

  4. This is going to be his Swan Song as Joker so I don't see anybody else but Hamill doing it.
