Star Wars actor Mark Hamill ditches his lightsaber in favor of a deck of cards in new artwork that shows him as The Joker for the Arrowverse.
Mark Hamill has dedicated the last few years to reprising his role as Luke Skywalker in the new Star Wars movies, but fans have been clamouring for a brand new Joker performance from the 68-year-old actor. Known by many as the definitive voice of the Joker, Mark Hamill made his debut as the Clown Prince of Crime in Batman: The Animated Series and has reprised his role countless times since. Most recently, Mark Hamill lent his grimy voice to the Joker in the video game LEGO DC Super-Villains. Mark Hamill has gone toe-to-toe with Kevin Conroy as Batman (vocally speaking) for over two decades, but unlike Conroy, Hamill hasn’t had the chance to play his DC Comics character in live-action.
Kevin Conroy was recently given the opportunity to star as Batman in the next Arrowverse crossover event, a first for the voice actor. Fans have rejoiced at the prospect of seeing their favorite voice of Batman finally play the role in a live-action capacity, but some were quick to announce their displeasure that Mark Hamill won’t get the chance to bring the Joker to life opposite his Batman: The Animated Series co-star. Digital artist “Skull101ify” decided Mark Hamill could give his time to just more than Star Wars and gave us this brilliant piece of fan art of the actor as a live-action Joker. You can check out the artwork of Mark Hamill as The Joker for the Arrowverse crossover event below.

Unfortunately, it may be too late to see Mark Hamill as a live-action Joker in the Arrowverse crossover, but we’re still grateful to have seen what it could have been like. With the Skywalker saga wrapping up this December, Mark Hamill should be free from Star Wars, and able to take on more projects as time goes on.

The Arrowverse crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of the Grant Gustin series 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 Stephen Amell’s 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 the Emerald Archer made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
Crisis 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 the latest news on Mark Hamill, Star Wars and the next Arrowverse crossover event.
