Just in time for “Batman Day”, Joker voice actor Mark Hamill has shared pictures of himself hanging out with Kevin Conroy.
Both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill first appeared together on Batman: The Animated Series as Batman and the Joker respectively, and since then the two have reprised their roles across multiple mediums, including the Arkham games and the animated film adaptation of the Joker origin story The Killing Joke. The photo of Kevin Conroy appears to have been taken while Mark Hamill was preparing to film for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which would have been around the show’s 25th anniversary.
Mark Hamill also shared other images of himself and Kevin Conroy as he commemorates the superhero’s anniversary, which you can see in the collage below:
