Hamill: “Never Say Never” To Joker Return After Arkham City

Except for when he said never.

I have not finished Batman: Arkham City but being on the TSA news team means I am aware of the final scene in the game. If you also know the conclusion you may find the following Tweets between voice actor Mark Hamill and a fan somewhat confusing.

  • @HamillHimself : Hey Mr. Hamill if you were asked to voice Joker in Arkham 3 would you do it?
  • @LucBruno88: Never say never!

Hamill himself has previously said ‘never’ to a Joker return after the events of Arkham City, and having told the world he was retiring from the role.

  1. Without Joker batman is pointless yes he has many enemies but joker motivates him & is challenging

  2. Hang on, @HamillHimself asked himself a question and @LucBruno88 else replied for him? That’s confusing enough.

    • Dunno why I put a random “else” in that comment.

    • *Facepalm*
      Take it you don’t have twitter

      • I am a Twittererer, but it just threw me (as explained below).. but after reading it again I got it. You are correct, a true facepalm moment!

    • The first one is LucBruno88 asking a question (which is why it starts with @HamillHimself, as it is him directing his question to Mark) & the second one is Mark replying (which is why it starts with @LucBruno88, as he is directing his reply back to the asker).

      Hopefully that makes some sort of sense! :S

      • Ah I see now, with the colons after the names it didn’t look like a Twitter mention.

      • Actually, i agree – The colons are off-putting.

  3. The joker can never be gone for long, hes got that story immunity that prevents him from ever being killed no matter how much he is shot, burned,exploded, crushed,tickled

  4. I think Mr Hamill will need to make some adjustments to his bike to account for that much backpedalling!

  5. I wonder what they would do if they don’t have Joker in the game.

    Love the star wars tag.
    If you are interested in Mark Hamill’s Joker, there is a interview he did about it with Kevin Smith on his new podcast Fat Man on Batman.


  6. But he just voiced the Joker for the DC expansion pack recently. ;) I don’t blame him for not wanting to voice Joker anymore as it will get boring voicing the same character for a few years. But i do hope he just wants a break from Joker and will one day, return to voice him as he is the best Joker so far. Animated wise before anyone mentions Heath Ledger. I’m onto you. *gives the evils and is told to take a timeout* :p

  7. well he is voicing the Joker in the new DCUO expansion, along with Arleen Sorkin back as Harley.
