Mark Hamill Explains Heartbreaking (But Understandable) Reason He Probably Won’t Play The Joker Again

Although Mark Hamill will arguably always be best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, in the realm of voice acting, there’s no question that his biggest role has been The Joker, Batman’s arch-nemesis. Hamill first voiced the Clown Prince of Crime in Batman: The Animated Series, taking over the role from Tim Curry before the show premiered, and the last three decades have seen him playing the cackling villain across all sorts of TV shows, movies and video games. Unfortunately, it looks like Hamill’s time as The Joker has come to an end, with the actor explaining the heartbreaking, but understandable reason why he probably won’t return to the role.

Last November, Kevin Conroy, who voiced Batman opposite Mark Hamill’s Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and various other projects, passed away at the age of 66. Hamill was among the celebrities who paid tribute to Conroy, and while speaking with Empire Magazine (via ScreenRant), the Star Wars actor shared that the main reason he kept returning to play Joker was if Conroy was involved in the project. With Conroy no longer around, Hamill’s heart isn’t in the role anymore. In his words:

They would call and say, ‘They want you to do the Joker,’ and my only question was, ‘Is Kevin Batman?’ If they said yes, I would say, ‘I’m in.’ We were like partners. We were like Laurel and Hardy. Without Kevin there, there doesn’t seem to be a Batman for me.
