DC Comics has been trying to get its cinematic universe fixed for a few years and with successes like Aquaman, Shazam!, Joker and The Batman, they may have finally found their place. You’d think a company that had great success with its animated universe, created by Bruce Timm, wouldn’t have struggled so much with live action. With projects as classic as batman beyond, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Static shock, Superman: The Animated Series and even Batman: The Animated Series there is a clear formula for DC’s success. Batman: The Animated Series definitely made Batman even more popular with kids growing up in the early ’90s, but it also made the Joker just as famous. In the animated series, Joker was best known for being voiced by Star Wars legend Mark Hamill, but he was previously voiced by Tim Curry. Curry was replaced by Hamill, but not before recording dialogue as the Clown Prince of Crime. A fan of the show found some of the actors’ dialogue from a recent documentary and replaced Hamill’s voice in a key scene which you can check out below.
“In a recent documentary with Batman TAS, they released some of Tim Curry’s Joker recordings before he was replaced by Mark Hamill,” the account revealed on Twitter. “I cleaned up and improved his audio recordings a bit while trying to sync them to better footage.”

DC Comics’ next project featuring the Joker will still be a sequel to 2019’s Joker film, Joker: Madness for two. The film is directed by Todd Phillips and will bring Phoenix back with Lady Gaga set to join the cast as Harley Quinn. Phillips has been in the news lately after his name popped up in reports suggesting he was a filmmaker. Warners potentially wanted to direct DC Films. At one point, the director admitted he threw a whole “dark” tag at DC bosses, though that never materialized – yet.
‘When I threw them’Joker“, it wasn’t a movie, it was, let’s do a whole label,” Phillips said in 2019. cinema? But they said, let’s do this one.”
He added, “Here’s the real truth about a sequel. Although Joaquin and I have talked about it, and traveling around the world with Warner Bros executives — going to Toronto, Venice and other places — of course we sit down to dinner and they say, ‘So, have you thought about…?’ But, speaking of contracts, there’s not even a contract for us to write a sequel, we’ve never approached Joaquin to be in a sequel. Will that happen? Again, I think. just that the article was at best anticipatory.
