    Well, it's offical.

    Star Wars actor, Mark Hamill confirmed that he won't be voicing the Joker anymore. Hamill shared this news on his official Twitter account. He voiced the character in Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and other animated features. Most recently he voiced the Joker in Rocksteady Studios' critically acclaimed video game Batman: Arkham Asylum and its sequel Batman: Arkham City, which is also his final voice work for the character. But he may come back when WB animation does The killing joke animated film.

    May the force be with you Skips the Yeti.

    I think he said the exact same thing following Arkham Asylum.

    Honestly, an actor/voice actor saying that they won't ever do something again is like a character dying in a comic book.

    I have to admit, I've heard this before. Just wait till Timm does another awesome DC universe film that requires Hamil's Joker....he will be back. Granted, he may take a few years off, but he will be back. I would imagine that he will voice joker in the robot chicken DC special that Seth Green and company are trying to get done as well.

    You Still Got John DiMaggio. He sounded like Heath Ledger.

    His voice was one of the reasons The Animated Series is one of (if not) the BEST comic book cartoon.

    I just picked up Arkham Asylum too, will most likely get Arkham City eventually.

    This will be the last time he does it... until the next time he does it. Once there's enough demand for it, and a sack with enough dollar signs on it, he'll do it again.

    Many years ago I found out the Joker is Mark Hamill. Weird that Luke Skywalker plays the Joker.

    I don't know. The ending of Arkham City made it his perfect exit.

    Do it. Arkham City is way better, and Arkham Asylum is fantastic.

    Indeed. He's deffinately not going to voice Joker again in that series of games.

    T'is a sad, sad day in the history of DC-associated voice acting. I shall throw a pig roast in Mr. Hamill's honor for his truly definitive Joker portrayal. :(

    Last time as Joker? I'll believe that when he's dead.

    You know, before Arkham Asylum he hadn't voice Joker since JLU. Unless he has a good reason I don't see why it's so hard to believe he's really done. It's not like it's a performance he does all the time.

    I'm wondering why he even made this announcement, I can only conclude that its a way to be able to bump up his fee for the next time.

    An unofficial 'I know I did a good job so next time is gonna be more'

    You know, out of all the Joker's voices on animated series, I liked Mark Hamill's the best. To me, he seemed to really encompass Joker's crazy nature with how he did the voice. His talent will be missed.....though I hope he changes his mind :D

    Don't even joke, I paid money to fly to Florida for Ric Flairs "retirement" Wrestlemania, what a joke that turned out to be! It was still a great holiday, but now I save my US trips for Botcon.

    To me Batman is Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy!

    Fans of hamill should check out his Dark horse comic mini-series "The Black Pearl", it's awesome.

    I'll miss him as the Joker (still think he might come back, but who knows), but we'll always have his work to enjoy over and over :)
