Troy Baker excels as The Joker in Batman: Assault on Arkham


Troy Baker would have been happy if he only had the one chance to play The Joker in last year’s video game release, Batman: Arkham Origins. He would have been proud to pour his very best effort into playing one of the most iconic villains of all time. As it turns out, he did not know at the time that he would be given the opportunity to reprise that role in an all new animated film coming out today on DVD and Blu-ray, Batman: Assault on Arkham. Given the amazing performance Troy Baker gave in the video game, you would think there wasn’t room to top it. Well, if you get a chance to purchase this Blu-ray/DVD, then you will see a performance of The Joker that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand straight up, with chills all over your body.

Joker-and-Harley

The evil and twisted laugh is enough to haunt your dreams and send you into therapy. The subtle and snive banter between The Joker and Harley Quinn, his former right-hand thug and “puddin”, will make you cringe and wonder if he wants to kill her or put her on a pedestal. Troy Baker gives an exceptional performance that will make you hope for him to return as The Joker in future Batman films from the awesome collaboration between Warner Bros Home Entertainment and DC Comics.

In this video below, you will see a “Joker Laugh-Off” between John DiMaggio and Troy Baker that was requested from a fan during the World Premiere Panel for Batman: Assault on Arkham at San Diego Comic-Con in July. You’ll get a taste for Troy’s depiction of The Joker, which is out of this world. After you watch it, let us know in the comments if you thought Troy won the laugh-off or John DiMaggio. You’ll also see an interview from ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell with Troy Baker at Comic-Con, taken just before the panel.

Batman: Assault on Arkham arrives today — Tuesday, August 12 — on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
