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.

I actually do think he's done with directing. But he'll produce and distribute for sure. I think he's more interested and passionate in things like his SModcasting where he can just TALK for hours on end. That's where his passion really lies. He's a social creature to the nth degree.

Fuck, why did I click on that spoiler link?!

Stupid OCD.

Mark Hamill has always been a good actor (check out "The Big Red One"). Plus he is such a big nerd! Check out "Comic Book the Movie" if you are a big fan of voice actors.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

^^ LOVE the Big Red One.. Seriously one of my favorite movies from back then.

I read this today with some dismay.. I was really hoping he'd be up for doing the Joker for "The Dark Knight Returns," which I understand is now a "go" (insert fan-boy squeee!)...

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

Personally, I always take it with a pinch of salt when actors say never. Sean Connery and James Bond and all that.

And I would imagine that an adaptation of TDKR might well be the very thing to tempt Mark Hamill out of Joker retirement - appropriately enough, given the plot!

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

^^ On that note, I realize that the characters in the story are out of date (Soviet Union, digital President Reagan), but I hope they keep the gritty, adult oriented feel of it and don't dumb it down.

And how cool would it be if David Letterman actually voiced the talk show host who interviews the Joker after his release?

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

They should cast Dave Letterman to voice the talk show host that is clearly based on him! That would be cool. As for future Joker roles for Hamill...I dunno. He seemed pretty clear and definitive about his decision this time. I have a feeling they will cast someone who we haven't heard before as the Dark Knight Returns Joker. Besides which, I don't really hear Mark as that Joker. Not saying he couldn't pull it off and be marvellous as usual, I just feel like the voice would be much different.

Crispin Glover might work as DKR Joker.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

I know I'm alone on this, but I always found Hamill's Joker to be kind of... grating and annoying on BTAS. His episodes were always my least favorite on the show, and his antics never seemed particularly scary or funny to me.

Frankly it wasn't until Ledger's portrayal that I ever found the character remotely interesting.

I sort of feel the same way. I would have preferred Ledger's Joker in Arkham Asylum, for example. I don't hate the Hamill version, though.

Yeah...that would have been tricky to get Ledger's Joker in the new video game....

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

As usual, Hamils comments about him parting ways with the Joker have been greatly exaggerated.

He already stated, he'd love to voice him again for an adaptaion of The Killing Joke.

So, basically, it's a case of "I'm done, but I'll come back...depending on the script."

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

Playing my way through Arkham City, he's leaving too damned many messages on my batphone. Good riddance.

Re: Mark Hamill: No more Joker

I found it funny and appropriate when, during the JLU ep 'Flash And Substance', he voiced the Trickster - essentially the role that got him the Joker - but basically using his own speaking voice (More or less).

I'm not surprised. The voice he does must be tough on his vocal cords.
Yeah, you can tell its not what it once was.

(Both Hamill's voice and his Joker voice)
