Mark Hamill NOT retiring as <i>The Joker</i> after <i>Batman: Arkham City</i> after all!

In a reply to a fan on Twitter it appears as though the rumours surrounding Mark Hamill’s retirement from playing The Joker after Batman: Arkham City were untrue!

After the revelation of Batman: Arkham City last year, Mark Hamill revealed, regarding his role as The Joker that:
“this will be my last, there’s no question about that. But it’s the last hurrah.”

This lead to widespread speculation that Hamill would be retiring from the role following the game's release this October. However, the rumors saying that this would be his last time in the role have been proven to be untrue by the man himself. Hamill clarified the through a response on Twitter last night in response to a fan, explaining:

“I only said Arkham Asylum would be hard to top, not that I was quitting.”




Hamill has been providing the voice of The Joker since 1992 during Batman: The Animated Series and now across nearly every medium possible. So what do you think? Does this announcement mean DC may have more projects voiced by Hamill lined up? As usual, leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Batman: Arkham City comes to the Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 18, 2011.
