Mark Hamill is hoping he’ll get the chance to voice the Joker in the upcoming animated version of The Killing Joke produced by Bruce Timm. The actor confirmed in a recent tweet that he’d like to take on the role, mirroring statements he made shortly after “retiring” from voicing the character back in 2011. Hamill has previously voiced Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and has returned to the character for video games and other films.
See the tweet after the break along with his initial tweets about the role from 2011.
