RUMOUR: Mark Hamill rumoured cast as Joker in The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover

August 6th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, we all know that Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in Batman: The Animated Series and the Arkham games, will be playing an older version of Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event on The CW later this year.

Which is awesome news.

But almost immediately, people wondered if Mark Hamill would be in the crossover as The Joker, having been well-known as the character in the same series and games.

And, if the new rumour is to be believed, he will.

Kapownews is reporting that Hamill has been cast in the series: “Reports are coming in saying that Mark Hamill has been cast as The Joker for the upcoming Arrowverse crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths”.”

Now, full disclosure, I cannot conform this but, if true, it’s not only fantastic news – the star has played The Trickster in The Flash before (above) – but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least as it really seems that The CW is pulling out all the stops for this year’s event.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
