The comic fanboy gods sure seem to be smiling today.
Coming hot on the heels of earlier confirmation that Mark Hamill will return as The Joker in The Killing Joke animated film next year, it’s now been revealed that Kevin Conroy would relish the opportunity to rejoin his long-time voiceover compatriot for another round.
Speaking to ComicBook.com about the possibility of reprising the role of Batman in The Killing Joke now that Hamill is on board, Conroy was enthusiastic about the prospect:
“Oh, God! Are you kidding me? I’d do it in a heartbeat. I love working with him. I couldn’t believe when they killed off The Joker. I would love to do it, and I hope that that happens.”
Hamill and Conroy most recently worked together on this year’s Batman: Arkham Knight game. Much like Hamill’s work with The Joker, Conroy’s name is essentially synonymous with Batman, heralded by many as the definitive voice of the character. Considering The Killing Joke is one of the greatest Batman and Joker stories in all of comics, it feels like a no-brainer to get the two best Batman and Joker voiceover actors to reunite once again on screen.
Get to work on making this happen, DC.
