Back to the post at hand. Yes, John Dimaggio did a surprisingly good job as the Joker in Under the Red Hood, and would be a welcome successor to Mark Hamill

(Thumbs up). I agree completely. I wouldn't mind if the Red Hood cast took over as the Batverse voices after Conroy and Hamill leave.

Dimaggio was good, he had a good Joker laugh but there were some moments I wasn't too sure of his Joker.  There's a lot to live up to with Mark Hamill who has really embodied the voice of the Joker, much like Conroy is the voice of Batman.  But I'll take Bender as Skywalker's replacement.

Definitely, Bruce Greenwood was a pretty damn good Batman

either the Joker Forum, or the John Dimaggio Forum (I think we have a Dimaggio Forum). But most likely this would belong in the Joker Forums.

And thanks to all those who agree with me, i mean hey next he plays joker again just ask him to have a roller coaster ride with you see he could practice a crazy high laugh!

Mark Hamill is the definitive voice of Joker for me.

He didn't do a bad job, but... (and there is a but) 
  
At times I felt him chanelling Ledger's Joker, whose version was way too somber for me; a deep menacing voice okay, but the face should reflect a bit of hysterics to temper Ledger's doom and gloom. 
 
Apart from the few moments where Heath showed up, I thoroughly enjoyed his portrayal 

#17 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

I can see what you mean when you said that he was chanelling Ledger's Joker. I particularly heard it in the scene where he was eating chips in front of Black Mask.  
 
I think he's pretty good. He's no Hammil, but nobody can be as perfect as he was ;)

#18 Posted by Bopper Girl (188 posts) - - Show Bio

For the record dimaggio wasn't trying to be like anyone else's joker, he was trying to be his in joker like all those other actors were!

Abso-Freakin-Lutely
 
John DiMaggio so far has gotten the closest to be like Mark Hamill's Joker while at the same time making it his own.  With Mark Hamill retiring, he is the perfect person to go too.
 
Same goes for Bruce Greenwood, who is ON PAR with Kevin Conroy in my opinion. Kevin is still a great Batman voice and the voice I think of when I think of an animated Batman, but Bruce Greenwood has this solid snake thing going on that I totally dug. I actually (Don't send me so many hate messages) like Bruce Greenwood's voice just a tad bit more then Kevin Conroy's. 
 
But yes, I'd love to see John DiMaggio return...maybe in that new TV show, Young Justice.

For the record, I'd also like to point out that Neil Patrick Harris was an awesome Nightwing.... 
 
Thinking back, that whole movie was great in terms of voice acting :)

#21 Posted by Bopper Girl (188 posts) - - Show Bio
@Gambit1024: OH yes "Music Meister" did a pretty convicing nightwing as well!
#22 Posted by Bopper Girl (188 posts) - - Show Bio

Now, How about Kari Wahlgren as charmcaster?

#23 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (889 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't mind John DiMaggio's voice for the Joker, but it's just not something I like. Mark still has the best Joker voice as well as laugh to me and it may be a while before anyone beats him out.

@fenixREVOLUTION: well mark is retiring so we're going to need a replacement.
#25 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (889 posts) - - Show Bio
@Bopper Girl: I suppose I'll get used to it, it's not like I'm watching it everyday on television, like I was when Mark was the Joker.
#26 Posted by aslan10000 (91 posts) - - Show Bio

like she said once before, before john does joker again just take him on a roller coaster ride to practice his crazy laugh and he'll be even better. 
 
anyway back to your question on kari wahlgren as harley quinn... I think she'd be a great harley.

wait Mark hamill is retiring the Joker?........NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#28 Posted by Bopper Girl (188 posts) - - Show Bio
@The Angry Comic Book Critic:  well think about if he's 59 years old now so his voice is getting deeper so of course he's retiring. all we can do is just wait for new airs to the throne to speak out for new shows like john dimaggio joker joker and hopefully kari wahlgren as charmcaster.

@Bopper Girl: Even so it's a fucking tragedy the man was Luke Skywalker and Joker for god's sake I grew with him as the clown prince of crime hell in 90% of the animated batman stuff he's been the joker to me he IS the joker I'm just really sad to see him go

@aslan10000:  yeah, that's what I was missing with both the Dark Night's Joker and RedHood's .. i miss that high pitch maniacal hysterical laugh :(
#31 Posted by wanderlost (3 posts) - - Show Bio
@Bopper Girl:  I can disagree and agree with that statement... in the sense that every actor brings his own element to a role.  
 
 I understand Ledger was given an idea of what the "type" of joker the director would like to see in the Dark Knight, more in tune with the culture of the recent Batman.  I think Dimaggio is continuing along those lines using his own style - i.e. a Joker for our times, a joker the audience of today can relate to. This is why I see a similarity in the way the actors portrayed the character

@wanderlost: don't worry about it, who knows, if john continues practicing it he might get it right. if kevin michael richardson could do it why not dimaggio?

ONLY if Mark Hamil never  does it again!!!

I've always been a huge fan of Mark Hamil's voice work as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series but, John DiMaggio was also decent  as the Jokerin Under the Red Hood.  They're both good and I believe that DiMaggio would make a good successor to Mark Hamil.

#36 Posted by MrDirector786 (43553 posts) - - Show Bio

I liked his voice in Under the Red Hood.

YES!!! i truly felt that nightwing was the hidden gem in this entire movie and i would love to see nph return. 
 
it would be interesting to see how greenwood and dimaggio will develop their roles. i mean take a look at the first few episodes of the animated batman, conroy and hamill were rough around the edges but quickly refined their voice acting. i really feel that these two would do a great job given time

@Valas: Or how about "Will Friedlie" he could do a good nightwing as well.

No he did not did we'll. don't get me wrong his voice is okay but didn't have a perfect joker tone. I mean he suppose to be homicidal maniac and did not sound insane.

#41 Posted by SupBatz (1734 posts) - - Show Bio

Absolutely. DiMaggio's Joker was the perfect mix of scary and funny. I'm surprised we haven't seen him again since UtRH.

#42 Posted by Batmanx2005 (375 posts) - - Show Bio

John dimaggios the worst joker. They made him more like jack nicholson and Heath ledger. I just wish jack nicholson or hamill could voice as joker

I think he did really good in Under the Red Hood, so I agree with OP.
