Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy wants Mark Hamill to appear with him as The Joker for the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover on The CW.
Earlier this month it was announced that Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy would be portraying a live-action version of Bruce Wayne for the CW’s upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earth‘s crossover. The iconic voice actor has been portraying Batman for nearly thirty years, but never in live-action until now. Now it seems that Kevin Conroy wants another iconic voice actor from Batman: The Animated Series to join him in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
In a recent post, a fan suggested that Star Wars legend Mark Hamill, who portrayed the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, should join Kevin Conroy in Crisis on Infinite Earths. That way the fans could have both of the definitive versions of Batman and the Joker in live-action. Kevin Conroy seemed to have thought this was an excellent idea and asked if Joker voice actor Mark Hamill was listening:

Like Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill has been voicing the Joker for nearly thirty years. Mark Hamill first voiced the character in the 1992 episode Joker’s Favor, and the two have appeared in numerous adaptations together. So, perhaps we are due for a live-action version of Kevin Conroy’s Batman and Mark Hamill’s Joker for Crisis on Infinite Earths!

Crisis on Infinite Earths has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed that Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement Oliver made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January. Stay tuned for more updates Arrowverse crossover event!
