Looks like Mark Hamill is playing the Joker in MultiVersus
MultiVersus received tons of new characters, with drunken scientist Rick Sanchez from the adult cartoon jumping back in time rick and morty being the latest addition to the Warner Bros. crossover fighter. The roster expansion won’t stop there, as data mining has suggested for some time that characters such as Gandalf, Mad Max and the Joker are also planned for the game. Now, however, a dataminer has apparently uncovered voice lines for The Joker that are sure to sound like actor Mark Hamill’s iconic take on the character, indicating the game could become one of the most beloved incarnations of the Clown Prince of Crime.

Dataminer Laisul, who already leaked Rick as MultiVersus‘ last fighter, took to Twitter to share his findings. With a short 30-second clip, Laisul revealed the announcer pack voice lines for The Joker. Announcer Packs are not actual battle line character voices. Instead, think of them as skins, replace the default announcer with the fighter of your choice to provide in-game commentary. Although short, the video lets you hear the Joker emphatically say things like “I think you lost that one, bucko!” And if you listen closely, it really sounds like Mark Hamill’s distinctive vocal styles that bring the character to life here.
There’s no official confirmation as to whether The Joker will be joining the roster, or whether Mark Hamill will be voicing the character. As far as we know, the announcer pack voice lines for the Psycho Criminal might sound similar to Mark Hamill, although if so, it’s a pretty good one. Developer Player First Games is committed to getting as many original voice actors as possible to reprise their roles. Perhaps Hamill was asked for this? Only time will tell, especially since Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has yet to comment on the leak.
Kotaku contacted Laisul and Warner Bros. for comments.
Probably better known as star wars‘ Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill have voiced the Joker since 1992, starting with Batman: The Animated Series. Hamill reprized the role for decades, although he briefly removed the character in October 2011. Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham City was at one point meant to be his last portrayal of the deranged clown, but he has since returned, appearing in the 2016 animated thriller Batman: The Killing Joke and the action-adventure platformer of 2018 Lego DC Super-Villains.

MultiVersus was quite successful for Warner Bros. since its release on July 19. In fact, best-selling game that month was the Super Smash Bros. clone, which is ironic considering it’s free.
