Mark Hamill’s Joker is coming out of retirement for one last laugh.
It was announced Monday the artist formerly known as Luke Skywalker will voice Mr. J once again for DC’s Animated version of “The Killing Joke.”
Plans to finally make an animated feature of Alan Moore’s classic graphic novel had been unvelied earlier this month at San Diego Comic Con.
While he had retired The Joker in 2011 after voicing the Clown Prince of Crime in the “Arkham City” video game, Hamill had reportedly expressed interest in returning to the role if “The Killing Joke” were to be made into an animated feature.
Not only did Hamill and fans alike get their wish, but according to Collider, Hamill has already recorded his voice for the feature.
The film will be released direct-to-video next year.
Who’d have thought something so awesome could come from a story revolving around one bad day?
