Mark Hamill Hopes to Voice The Joker for The Killing Joke


batman-the-killing-jokeMark Hamill’s version of The Joker is considered by many to be the definitive clown prince of crime, and now he hopes to voice the character in The Killing Joke.

Someone sent a Tweet to Hamill expressing their hopes that he’d be cast as The Joker in next year’s animated adaptation of the Alan Moore classic, and Hamill responded that he also has his fingers crossed:

You're not the only one w/ fingers crossed!

Back in 2011 when Batman: Arkham City was released it was reported that Hamill would be retiring his Joker voice, but he would return if they ever did an adaptation of The Killing Joke. That reported retirement didn’t seem to last however as Hamill voiced The Joker in the excellent Batman: Arkham Knight. Hopefully DC realizes how much The Killing Joke would benefit from having the best Joker in it and gives Hamill a call.
