[STEAM][PRESS]Mark Hamill Returning to Voice the Joker in MultiVersus Alongside the Late Kevin Conroy's Batman


Recommended Posts

The Joker is coming to MultiVersus, and he’s bringing longtime voice actor Mark Hamill with him.

Warner Bros. and Player First Games confirmed the news today, revealing that the character will join its already stacked platform fighter’s roster when it launches later this month. The Joker is one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture, so his inclusion in any crossover project is sure to turn heads.

The character’s debut trailer sees Batman marching forward into battle as Bugs Bunny, Shaggy, and Arya Stark fall around him. The Joker will use a crowbar, cards, and explosives when taking down other Warner Bros. icons, and you can see his reveal trailer below.

Hamill, who originally voiced the Clown Prince of ****** in Batman: The Animated Series, has appeared in numerous spinoffs and is considered by many to be one of the best portrayals of the Joker. What makes his addition in MultiVersus so special is that Batman, who was confirmed as a playable character long ago, is voiced by the late Kevin Conroy.

Batman fans likely already know that Conroy and Hamill’s performances in The Animated Series have remained iconic since its debut in the ‘90s. The duo has reprised their roles in various movies, shows, and games through the years, with perhaps the most notable example of their work in games being the Batman: Arkham series.
