    Fans of Batman: The Animated Series everywhere can finally rejoice as Mark Hamill is returning to a role he truly defined for a generation, and no, we're not talking Star Wars. According the Collider, Mark Hamill will once again voice The Joker for the upcoming "Killing Joke" animated film. Hamill has played the Joker more than anyone else in numerous animated features and even in the Batman: Arkham games. When the Killing Joke animated film was announced, he was the first name that came up on every fan's list and it looks like they got their wish.

    The original KILLING JOKE comic hit stores back in 1988 and is the closest thing anyone has to an origin story for the iconic Batman villain. It was originally written by Alan Moore, with art from Brian Bolland, and colors John Higgins. It is widely considered to be one of the best Batman stories of all time and also one of the most twisted as well.

    We'll keep you updated as more develops.

    Its tough, on one hand I LOVE Mark Hamills Joker. He is by far the best. On the other hand I want them to try and find new Joker, and Batman voices. Some work out great (Baker, Greenwood), and some not so much (Richardson, Mckenzie). Either way this is going to be a great animation!

    All we need to know is that Hamill is voicing The Joker again. Doesn't matter if it's a cartoon or a video game...That's the one thing that matters.

    Perfect, it wouldn't really be a proper Killing Joke adaptation if Mark Hamill didn't come back for one final encore for his Joker performance. All we need to do is hope for Kevin Conroy to be announced, for Timm to get a good feel of how to bring The Killing Joke into an animated feature and for the female whingers to not gain much ground in their complaints of what happens to Barbara Gordon and this might be one of the best DC animated movies yet.

    I'll be curious to see how they do the ending in this movie, as the comic book ending was a little ambiguous and has been interpreted in a couple of different ways.

    I thought he said he was retiring Joker some time ago? Not that I'm complaining or anything.

    He did say he would come out of retirement for a Killing Joke movie

    Wouldn't have it any other way. They MUST get Kevin Conroy too. I don't even think Hamill has voiced joker with someone else as batman.

    So did I. I thought his take on Joker was better than Baker's, in my opinion. That being said, bring on Hamill, the one and only true voice of Joker!!!

    I think he still has it but I'm not so sure about Kevin Conroy.His voice in the last Arkham game didn't sound so great imo.

    While I like this as much as anyone else, I have to say: Mark Hamill's officially lost any credibility when he says, "This is the last time I'll voice the Joker.", right? I feel like he's said that for the last six projects he's voiced the Joker in.
