Good news animated Joker fans, Mark Hamill is back.

Ever since an animated adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s 1988 graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke was announced by Warner Brothers and producer Bruce Timm at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks back, fans have been fervently hoping that actor Mark Hamill, who voiced the Joker in the classic Batman: The Animated Series (as well as in a few other iterations over the years, most recently the Arkham Knight video game), would come out of “bad guy retirement” to play the Clown Prince of Crime one more time.

When a fan tweeted Mark Hamill that he had his fingers crossed he’d get to play the Joker in the new movie, Hamill responded “you’re not the only with fingers crossed!” suggesting that it wasn’t yet a done deal.

Well, it looks like Hamill was being maybe a little bit deceptive there, because according to a report on Collider, it looks like the actor already completed his voice acting work on the film, which is set to come out in 2016 (with a premiere supposedly set for next summer’s SDCC).
