Today my good friend Candiss Gandy sent me this note directly from LEGION OF GOTHAM about a recent Mark Hamill Tweet.
Aparently, even though Mr. Hamill has said goodbye to the Joker after so many years of voicing his character that he finalized gloriously with his participation in ARKHAM ASYLUM and ARKHAM CITY, he has formalized his interest in COMING BACK to voice his iconic villain IF THEY DO AN ADAPTATION OF THE KILLING JOKE!
Here is a copy of the actual TWEET:
Friend Editors and Writers at DC COMICS and especially MR. BRUCE TIMM:
With the upcoming 25th anniversary of the KILLING JOKE and Mr. Mark Hamill willing to come back JUST TO VOICE THAT STORY, I think you’ll have a winner here (and a no brainer). THE KILLING JOKE became a classic the moment it was printed in the late 1980’s, and if you could revamp UNDER THE RED HOOD and BATMAN YEAR ONE that became great success in their animated remakes, I’m possitive you can do an amazing job making THE KILLING JOKE into a direct to DVD movie. You got the winning team.
Jokerholics of the world:
Lets unite to promote this project. For the longest time I’ve dreamed of a ‘modenized’ version of THE KILLING JOKE on video and this might be the push that DC need to make this project reality. I’d say we all make a united front to promote the making of the animated movie with Mr. Hamill once more at the helm of a character he knows so well and he has made a classic.
