The animated adventures of Batman and the Joker will be continuing soon, with the infamous Killing Joke story up for an animated feature. More importantly, their voices are back.
Yes, Mark Hamill was and is Luke, but he’s been the Joker in the 90s cartoon, the Arkham games, the Justice League show, and Superman shows. And Conroy has voiced the Bat just as long, in movies and shows for twenty years. And both are thrilled to be back.
“The chance to work once again with Kevin Conroy, my favorite Batman, in what some consider the definitive origin of this iconic villain is a dream come true for me,” Hamill said to CBR. “I am beyond thrilled to return as The Joker in ‘The Killing Joke!'”
“I’ve had the great privilege of voicing Batman for more than two decades, and some of my favorite moments in the recording booth have been alongside Mark Hamill,” Conroy added. “Mark always enables me to be a better actor. I’m thrilled that we’re both back to bring these characters to life in one of the most heralded Batman/Joker stories of all time.”
As someone who was introduced to the Dark Knight through the amazing 90s show, its gonna be good to hear that laugh again.
