IS it just me or as Mark gets older he almost looks more like the Emperor

#5 Posted by MrMazz (1238 posts) - - Show Bio

seriously I would love to just see Hamill in the recording session just point a camera and let it go.

#6 Posted by htb106 (1641 posts) - - Show Bio

up now! absoloutely amazing!

From my understanding Mark does not want to do the joker anymore. though he is amazing at it. I can understand how it can be tiring.

If I ever saw him in person I would ask for an autograph because of his Joker, not Star Wars. I can understand not wanting to be known for just one thing. He was in Star Wars many years ago, and probably is experiencing the same thing now with the Joker. But he does a LOT of voice over work. I am pretty sure he was Bruno "Ugly" Manhime in Young Justice, Skips in Regular Show (plus other characters), Solomon Grundy on JLU, etc.

Any video with Stana Katic can only be a good thing.

John DiMaggio doesn't do a bad job either but yes, Mark Hamill is the one true Joker.

I like John DiMaggio, but his Joker sounded a little to much like Bender.

What?!!? Luke Skywalker is the Joker!!? That's awesome!!!

Both Arkham's are fantastic, and it's hard for me to pick which one I like more. They both are imo stark contrasts. From the closterphobic feeling of Asylum to the freedom of city how do you choose? The amount of detail in both is mind blowing, and the way that RS mastered the unreal 3 engine for both consoles just goes to show how good they are at what they do.

Oh and getting the definitive voices of the two biggest characters doesn't hurt either.

This was awesome. I always love to see behind the scene things for your favorite video game, movie, or television show

@NightFang: I never get the sense of Bender when he played Joker in Under the Red Hood.

To each their own I guess, but all I could hear was a more insane homicidal Bender.

I dunno why they put Talia's voice actress on the video, she was one of the more mediocre voices of the games IMO.

#23 Posted by ZZoMBiE13 (710 posts) - - Show Bio

Watched Kevin Conroy give a Q & A panel this past weekend at the Dallas Comic Con. That guy is just 100% professional.

Mark Hamill

M-Arkham-ill

Good news, he's back as Joker doing some voice work in DC Universe Online for the next DLC The Last Laugh.

#26 Posted by Drummer007 (111 posts) - - Show Bio

@RigorMortis: I had no idea he was the Joker. I played the game and all never would have thought that was him. He did an awesome job.

You may have jumped to conclusions a little fast.

#27 Posted by Jackson_Hartley (186 posts) - - Show Bio

@Fantasgasmic: I'd say it was more for the comic fans. They like to see who's behind the mask/voice of their fave characters and within DC, Talia is a very popular character and plays a major role in Bruce Wayne's life.

An amazing holy trinity between those three, Hamill, Conroy and Katic. Wonderful footage :)

This had me cracking up. I thought of Hamil's Joker laugh changing into that of the Emperor

Same here.

Hear, hear!

I love how Conroy always comes off as being, humble, honored, and appreciative of the role he's done for 20+ years during interviews.

#31 Posted by dewboy01 (1876 posts) - - Show Bio

Mark's so cool with that joker laugh. Kevin conroy as well, with a better (as always) voicing act.

#32 Posted by The_MVPs (84694 posts) - - Show Bio

From Iconic Luke, to Iconic Joker. Not many could pull that off.

omg. who is that girl voicing Talia? She is one hawt momma

#34 Posted by MysteryMan38 (20 posts) - - Show Bio

That's Stana Katic. She plays Detective Kate Beckett on 'Castle' opposite Nathan Fillion as Rick Castle. But the chance to see even fleeting clips of Mark Hamill, actually voicing the Joker, oh my god. For years I had no idea it was him, mainly because when the show was on, I was just a toddler. Thankfully that changed when I was 12 and did some digging. When Mark finally kicks the bucket, I am going to just lose it. Same thing goes for Kevin Conroy, if there ever comes along a duo who do Batman and Joker's voices better than these guys, the world is probably going to be ending at that point.

#35 Posted by Purgatory (37 posts) - - Show Bio

The should have just included this footage in with the game. A Special Features option that had video of hours of dialogue/acting sessions with the actors. I's totally watch 2 hours worth of Kevin and Mark going back and forth in the recording room. Plus whoever was playing Harley and Selina.

And that chick playing Talia is hot!

IT'S A TRAP!

#39 Posted by BBAlpert (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh God, why did I watch this? I have a hard enough time dissociating Phil LaMarr and Steve Blum from their characters (and that guy who was on Coach from Patrick Star), I shouldn't have let myself put a face to Batman's voice.

D:

On a related note, I hope I never see John DiMaggio's or Billy West's faces.

#40 Posted by TheWitchingHour (1340 posts) - - Show Bio

I had no idea Stana played Talia and Harley. That's great. I love her on Castle.

#41 Posted by CELKali (28 posts) - - Show Bio

@BBAlpert: Hate to do this to ya, but if you ever watched Oz... He's the evil Neo Nazi officer Metzger. Blew my damn mind. His name's Bill Faggerbakke. He's also Marshall's dad on How I Met Your Mother.

John looks like a slightly bigger and more American Simon Pegg, Billy West is... just Billy West. I can guarantee you wont expect what you see if you do.

#42 Posted by CommanderShiro (185 posts) - - Show Bio

I loved watching this video.

Sweet.

#44 Posted by Ama_Sama (101 posts) - - Show Bio

Out of all of the people who have ever played Joker, on film or simply as the voice of, Mark Hamill by far has the best laugh. And, in complete honest, when I read the comics, Hamill and Conroy are the voices I hear. I couldn't help but grin when the director mentioned that.

#45 Posted by FatihBATMAN (1389 posts) - - Show Bio

I wish I had Conroys voice.... sad that the joker voice is no more..
