Collider is reporting that Mark Hamill is confirmed to reprise his role as The Joker in the upcoming DC animated adaptation of The Killing Joke. Wait, let me rephrase that: Mark Hamill has already recorded all voice acting for The Killing Joke! Yup, you read that right!
When Hamill took to Twitter to state that he would love to be involved in the project, it seems like he was leading all of us astray. The actor has provided all necessary recordings for the film, which is slated to come out next year as a direct-to-video release.
The description for The Killing Joke reads:
‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ provides an origin story for the Joker, an established comic book supervillain. It depicts him as a failed stand-up comedian who agrees to aid a gang of criminals and is thwarted by the superhero Batman before being disfigured; in doing so he is driven insane and attains his supervillain persona.
Hamill is considered to be one of the best representations of The Joker, having provided the voice for the character in Batman: The Animated Series as well as the Batman: Arkham video game series.
