Mark Hamill’s journey facing the evil force is yet to come to an end as he now may well be on his way to lending voice to the scariest of them all. In a new project helmed by DC, rumors indicate that the Star Wars franchise actor will return to voice the character of Joker in the MultiVersus project launched by DC. Although this is not the first time he has done so, the return of Mark Hamill in the iconic role in whatever capacity is something the fans have been looking forward to.

Mark Hamill Reportedly Voicing Joker in MultiVersus

According to a new post on Twitter, a clip uploaded by a user revealed the announcer lines in the signature maddening and snarky voice of the Joker. Although it is not much of a giveaway, the voice closely resembles that of Mark Hamill as he keeps mocking away, delivering one jab after another to players when they pick and choose, or even counting down the final few seconds left to finish the match.

The voice of the Joker in the clip resembles closer to a comic or animated film version villain rather than the eerie and unsettling renditions of live-action films. The obnoxiously self-assured and loud voice does little to upset and has more to do with the mechanism that is usually followed within the proprietary structures of a game. MultiVersus will feature a return of Mark Hamill, if this indeed is his voice, as the Joker after a much critically acclaimed voice-acting in Batman: The Animated Series and in the video game series, Batman: Arkham AsylumBatman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight.
