Kevin Conroy, who many believe as the definitive Batman, has the longest history with the character, having voiced him in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992 and several other animated films. Conroy, in an interview with HeyUGuys, gave his thoughts on the Joker origin film, which was recently announced as one of the next projects at Warner Bros. and DC.
“I think that will be a really interesting film. There is an episode of Batman: The Animated Series which dealt with that and told that story. It’s really interesting. I had not heard they were doing a film version of it but I hope that Mark [Hamill] gets it!”
While Mark Hamill’s Joker has always been excellent, it’s doubtful that he might be playing the Clown Prince of Crime in a standalone film. But it is nice to know that Conroy approves of a film and he brings up a good point about an origin episode about the Joker has already been done in Batman: The Animated Series.
As of right now, there really isn’t much news about the Joker origin film or who will even play the character (it won’t be Jared Leto).

The Joker is one of the most popular villains in fiction. As a result of that, he has been featured in multiple movies, TV shows and video games. Fortunately, he’s a character who can be molded to fit his environment. He’s equally at home in The LEGO Batman Movie getting his feelings hurt as he is pushing Superman to the brink in the Injustice video game franchise.
One question persists through all those adaptations: who plays Joker best?
For all you Suicide Squad fans out there wondering why Jared Leto isn’t on the list, don’t worry I got an answer for you. I didn’t like him! Man oh man, I thought he was terrible honestly. Laughable in the wrong sense of the word. Perhaps some of the cut scenes might have changed my mind, but from what I saw I wasn’t left wanting more.
Do you think I’m wrong? Should Leto or someone else have made the list? Sound off in the comment section and let me know!
