Joker and Trickster Kidnaps Mark Hamill in new Justice League Action Short
A new Justice League Action short has gone full meta because it involved Mark Hamill (Star Wars, Batman The Animated Series, The Flash), The Joker and the Trickster!
Watch the full episode “Missing the Mark” below:
In this short, Joker and Trickster realize that kidnapping an actor of Hamill’s stature will give them a lot of money because the studios will need him back. What they failed to realize was that Hamill is also an accomplished voice actor lending his voice to characters like – you guessed it, Joker and Trickster.
Hamill voiced Joker for WB’s Batman: The Animated Series AND Batman: The New Adventures in the early 90s. He’s also lent his voice to the subsequent Joker appearances within the DCAU including Justice League Unlimited and the very dark and very classic Batman Beyond: The Joker Returns.
Meanwhile Hamill starred as the Trickster in the 80’s live-action together with John Wesley Shipp (who later became Jay Garrick and Henry Allen in CW’s The Flash).
I also loved how they ended the episode with a quick appearance of Swamp Thing just to make things weird and fun.
