Last summer, a rumor surfaced that Mark Hamill will be voicing The Joker once again in an animated feature film based on Alan Moore's "Batman: The Killing Joke," and the actor has confirmed to CBR that he will indeed be back as the Clown Prince of Crime.

Kevin Conroy, who has voiced Batman in multiple animated movies, TV series, and video games, will also return as The Dark Knight, and other voice actors include Tara Strong as Barbara Gordon and Ray Wise as Commissioner Gordon.

In a statement, Hamill said "The chance to work once again with Kevin Conroy, my favorite Batman, in what some consider the definitive origin of this iconic villain is a dream come true for me. I am beyond thrilled to return as The Joker in 'The Killing Joke!'" while Conroy added, "I’ve had the great privilege of voicing Batman for more than two decades, and some of my favorite moments in the recording booth have been alongside Mark Hamill. Mark always enables me to be a better actor. I’m thrilled that we’re both back to bring these characters to life in one of the most heralded Batman/Joker stories of all time.”

Hamill teased his involvement with the project yesterday in a series of tweets, and he also shared the first still from the movie.

"The Killing Joke" is considered by many to be one of the most iconic (as well as controversial) Batman/Joker tales of all time, and as a huge fan of the graphic novel, I can't wait to see how the animated adaptation turns out.

A release date hasn't been set yet for BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, but it will premiere at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con before arriving in stores this summer.

Fuck. And yes. Mark will always be the voice of Joker and Kevin will always be the voice of Batman. Whenever I read any Batman comics I always read it in their voices. Fucking. Awesome.

I'll watch this as I like the story and the cast, but I do find DC's straight to DVD adaptations to have very lazy looking and bland animation. There never appears to be anything unique to the visual elements at all.

DC has killed it with their animated movies

I really liked BATMAN: UNDER THE RED HOOD and I enjoyed their version of WONDER WOMAN as well. Bringing back Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill is just all kinds of awesome, IMO. Looking forward to this.

Kevin Freakin' Conroy!! Nevertheless, how can they translate The Killing Joke into a movie that kids will enjoy as well? Then again, they did make Assault on Arkham in which I'm very surprised to see certain scenes made it to the movie.

Last I heard, they weren't making this one for the kids. WB greenlight an R - rated version.
