With all due respect to all other voice actors, but there is no one else I would rather voice The Joker than Mark Hamill. When I was young and watching Batman: The Animated Series at my grandparents house after school, the voices I heard on that show were the voices I now hear when I read any comic. To say they were nothing less than iconic would be an understatement. I don’t know what it was, but even before I know Luke Skywalker himself was the voice of The Joker I couldn’t picture anyone else doing the voice for him.
When the word came out that The Killing Joke was going to be the next DC Animated movie and that Kevin Conroy would be voicing Batman, everyone crossed their fingers that Mark Hamill would be The Joker and it looked like he did as well
You’re not the only one w/ fingers crossed! https://t.co/PcKlgRQFaU

The news recently broke that Mark Hamill has already done his voice acting, so he’ll be in the movie. Along with Mark and Kevin, Melissa Gilbert will also be reprising her role as Barbara Gordon. Sadly Bob Hastings is no longer with us, but I’m sure that they’ll find another suitable James Gordon.
If you want a hint at what a main plot point of The Killing Joke is, check out this video I captured from the recently released Batman: Arkham Knight video game
