Mark Hamill reprising his role as the Joker

Well this is stellar and fantastic news. One of the true joys of watching Batman: The Animated Series was Mark Hamill's role as the Joker. His voice added that certain level of delirium that really differentiated the animated Joker from other incarnations. Why am I telling you this? Well, according to Kotaku (via the Gamestop Expo), Mark Hamill has been announced as playing a role in the upcoming Batman game. What role? The Joker of course. What game? The freshly minted Arkham Asylum announced by Rocksteady Games. And what's more is that Rocksteady Games is running a contest where one lucky winner will get the chance to be an inmate in the game. So this game has quickly gone from being simply intriguing to moving closer to a must have. Early impressions of the game look good, and knowing that Hamill is coming on Joker makes it even more awesomer. Stay tuned for details. Hamill as the Joker again


  1. Thanks for the heads up, Jonathan. I've been following the game closely since it was announced and it's just been sounding better and better. I really liked Hamill's version of the Joker.

    By the way, do you all have a PS3 or Xbox 360 to play the game on? If you don't, you might want to take a look at this Stacker 2 contest going on where you can win the system. Right now there are less than 300 entrants, and there are even weekly prizes you can win including Rise of the Argonauts and 6 Hour Power energy shots. Check out the details here:

    By the way, I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by commenting. I work with 6 Hour Power so if anyone has any questions about the contest or the 6HP energy shot just let me know. If you enter, be sure to send me an e-mail and I'd be happy to vote for your designs. Good luck.
