Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

I'm not surprised. The voice he does must be tough on his vocal cords.

Hmm, I figured vocal strain was probably the reason.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

Does anybody know the story of Sorkin not doing Harley in Arkham City? It's too bad with it being Hamill's final outing as Joker.

I gained an even higher respect for Conroy when I tried some door and the line sounded off (maybe a fill-in line?) and it was very disconcerting.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

Tara Strong is a fantastic successor to Harley in Arkham City. She did such a great job that I didn't even notice that it wasn't Arleen. This is the only article I could find on the casting...

I was going to go NYCC just to meet Hamill. Heard he was an asshole and charged 100 bucks just to have a pic taken with him, but his attitude was worse.

DAMN! I was surprised to see on IMDB a month ago he just turned 60!! Give the man a break! Although IMO he was the BEST Joker around, putting THAT much into a voice role might tend to be much.

I don't have a source handy, but I'm pretty sure I've read its for the same reason Hamil is probably calling it quits. She's not a young woman anymore and its quite difficult to pull off the voice successfully. The quality of her voice was actually pretty noticeable in Arkham Asylum.

Its too bad the technology and know-how weren't around to do these games during TAS' heyday.

So he'll be free to hook up with Kevin Smith for his triumphant return as Cock knocker then?

Live action or animation? The animated version sounded a bit more like his original voice but in "The Flash" live action series he sounds a lot like the Joker.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

No one will ever do that Joker voice as well, so it's always going to be a shame. He was a much better actor than he ever got credit for. I definitely agree with that, too.

I've been re-watching "Batman: TAS" lately, and it's still astonishing to me the level of voice-acting talent they had on that show. I hope Conroy continues to do the voice, until such time as he sees fit to stop. That's another case of no one doing that voice (or voices, I guess) better.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

^That, my friend, is an understatement. TAS's voice-acting kicked butt. Conroy... he fits the Dark Knight. I watched a clip of the end of "Harley's Holiday" and the entirety of Justice League Unlimited's "Epilogue," and Conroy brings such humanity to Batman. Conroy's probably the reason Bats is my favorite superhero.

And Mark Hamill's Joker is still my favorite.

I'm in the process of watching Batman: TAS and I do have to agree that the voice acting is pretty impressive.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

Considering Kevin Smith is prepping his final movie "Hit Somebody" and the ViewAskewinverse is pretty much concluded with "Clerks II" I doubt we'll see Cock Knocker again. That was such a fantastic scene.

I was just joking, I know that universe is over. I think it sucks, but it ended on a high note. Something tells me that Kevin Smith is not done making movies.
