Fans of the Batman: Arkham series can rejoice, because their favorite voice actors are reuniting! Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy will reprise their roles as the Joker and Batman, respectively. Unfortunately for fans of the series, the actors are not coming together for a new game, but a new animated film.
Batman: The Killing Joke is an upcoming animated film from Warner Bros. that is currently without a definite release date. The film will be the based on the comic of the same name and will be rated R. It would have been hard to imagine anybody other than Hamill and Conroy as Batman and Joker. Both have played the two comic book characters so well throughout the Arkham series that anybody else in their roles would have big shoes to fill.
For any Batman and Arkham fans, this probably brings warmth to the bat cave in your heart. The Killing Joke might be a good way to tie ourselves over until we get our hands on Telltale’s upcoming Batman game, which still has no set release date. Or maybe Rocksteady (or another dev) will get inspired by the film and make another game.
Batman: The Killing Joke, starring Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, will debut at San Diego Comic Con in July 2016. The movie will reportedly be in stores this Summer.
