Mark Hamill Meets the Joker and Trickster in JUSTICE LEAGUE ACTION

Mark Hamill Meets the Joker and Trickster in JUSTICE LEAGUE ACTION

Whenever most comic fans read issues of Batman featuring the Joker, there is usually one voice they hear in their minds, and that voice belongs to Mark Hamill. Since 1992, Hamill has played the iconic villain in animated form to utter perfection. Put that on top of that Luke Skywalker guy he plays and it adds up to a pretty amazing career. Recently, Justice League Action decided to make history and show what would happen when Hamill actually got to meet the Clown Prince of Crime.

Getting into what he thinks is his ride share, Mark is abducted by the Joker and the Trickster in your basic “ransom the famous celebrity for millions” scheme. Makes sense, except for one thing: Why is the Joker teaming with the Trickster? Well, fans of the TV series The Flash (new and old) remember Hamill played the Trickster. This worked out perfectly for Hamill, whose voice acting skills helped play the two villains against each other, leading them right into a trap set by Swamp Thing (Guess who provides Swamp Thing’s voice? Hint: it rhymes with “Shark Mammal”).

This animated short works on multiple levels. We get to see an animated Mark Hamill. We get to hear him perform two of the characters he is known for, as well as a newer one. Then there’s the fun and subtle breaking of the fourth wall. This is yet another example of Hamill absolutely loving what he does.

You can check out more Justice League Action shorts on the DC Kids YouTube channel.

So what do you think? Who did Hamill play best? Joker? Trickster? HIMSELF? Let me know on Twitter @donnielederer or sound off in the comments below.
