It had been rumoured for a while, but the best Batman and Joker will be in the new animated adaptation of Alan Moore & Brian Bolland’s The Killing Joke.

Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, will reprise their roles as Batman and the Joker for the film and I couldn’t be happier. Tara Strong will voice Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Ray Wise will voice Commissioner Gordon in Batman: The Killing Joke.

“The chance to work once again with Kevin Conroy, my favorite Batman, in what some consider the definitive origin of this iconic villain is a dream come true for me,” Hamill said in a statement to CBR. “I am beyond thrilled to return as The Joker in ‘The Killing Joke!’”

“I’ve had the great privilege of voicing Batman for more than two decades, and some of my favorite moments in the recording booth have been alongside Mark Hamill,” Conroy added. “Mark always enables me to be a better actor. I’m thrilled that we’re both back to bring these characters to life in one of the most heralded Batman/Joker stories of all time.”

Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland, The Killing Joke is one of the most iconic and acclaimed Joker stories ever published, along with one of the most controversial, primarily stemming from its depiction of brutal violence against Barbara Gordon.

While a release date has yet to be set for Batman: The Killing Joke, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will host the world premiere this summer at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The film will arrive in stores later this summer.

Mark Hamill also shared the first image from the film.
