Even if you were not the biggest fan of ‘The Killing Joke‘ (as I was not), you have to admit there is a certain magic whenever Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy return to their iconic voice-roles as the Joker and Batman. And based on a recent appearance by both during Canada’s 2016 Fan Expo, it seems that neither is done yet playing these characters, which is especially surprising considering the fact that it was not that long ago that Mark Hamill claimed he was done playing the Joker. Apparently, a fan asked the duo whether they were done playing their respective characters, and then what other projects they had on the docket. The answer was great, as Conroy apparently first stated “no” to either of them being done with the roles, and then turned to Hamill and coyly asked “What do you think about doing ‘Hush?'” And then once the crowd’s excitement was piqued, Hamill then asked Conroy, “What do you think about doing ‘A Death in the Family?'” The audience roared, but the question is still lingering about whether the pair were actually revealing the next DC Animated ‘Batman’ movies or just having some fun with the crowd while talking about storylines they would like to see done in the future.
For those not in the know, ‘Hush’ was a popular Batman story that introduced the super villain named ‘Hushed’ in a plot that pitted most of Batman’s rogue gallery against him in a vast conspiracy. ‘A Death in the Family’ is the famous late 80’s ‘Batman’ storyline that culminated with the death of Jason Todd at the hands of the Joker, a scene that was briefly seen during the ‘Under the Red Hood’ animated movie from DC, but has yet to be fully explored in the animated universe.
