Mark Hamill: would he ever do another Arkham sequel?
To many fans, Mark Hamill’s take on The Joker is the definitive one, both on the long-running Batman: The Animated Series and the best-selling Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City games. So news that he may never again voice the character was quite distressing!
Well, according to recent Tweets by Hamill, he’s not quite done with voicing the Joker just yet:
“Just thought I would clarify that my Joker comments are not related to Arkham City,” he tweeted yesterday. Might there be more sequels to the best-selling video game that the actor would possibly voice in the future?
But another message made it clear that he would definitely return to voicing the Clown Prince Of Crime, given the right project. In response to a fan wondering if Hamill would return to the Joker if he could do it in an adaptation of the classic Alan Moore/Brian Bolland graphic novel The Killing Joke, the actor responded: “I’d come back for THAT! Spread the word!”
Mark Hamill as The Joker in an adaptation of The Killing Joke? Awesome!
Given Warner Bros.’ impressive roster of animated movies based on key comics such as Batman: Year One, a Killing Joke project is not out of the realm of possibility. As of this writing, a Twitter campaign has started to get Hamill the role. Want to join in?
