Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, to Reprise Roles for Batman: The Killing Joke


Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy will be reprising their roles in Warner Bros. Animation’s Batman: The Killing Joke as The Joker and Batman. Comic Book Resources confirmed the casting, reporting that Tara Strong (Barbara Gordon/Batgirl) and Ray Wise (Commissioner Gordon) will also join the cast.

While the release date has not been released for the comic-book adaptation, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is going to host a world premiere screening of the The Killing Joke this summer at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

The Killing Joke is illustrated by Brian Bolland and written by Alan Moore (V for Vendetta, Watchmen). It is considered as one of the most controversial Joker stories in the comic books, and the sheer brutality visited upon Barbara Gordon leaves many fans thinking that the movie will get an R-rating.

Mark Hamill first voiced the Joker in 1990s Batman: The Animated Series (Bruce Timm) and has reprised the character several times. Kevin Conroy also started as the Dark Knight in Batman The Animated Series and in home video movies as well as in other DC Universe videogames and cartoons. Tara Strong initially voiced Barbara Gordon (The New Adventures of Batman, 1997) and as Harley Quinn. Ray Wise is known for Agent Carter, Twin Peaks and Mad Men. He also voiced Perry White for DC and WBA’s Superman: Doomsday.
