When it was announced Mark Hamill would not be reprising the role of The Joker for the third Arkham game, Batman: Arkham Origins, I was sad, like I’m sure were many of you. It’s difficult to imagine anyone else bringing that same sneer mixed with a hint frivolity to the voice. That was, until I heard this.

This video comes from the Batman: Arkham Origins panel at NYCC where the new Joker, Troy Baker, gave the audience a taste of what he’s got. Reading an excerpt of the Joker’s monologue from The Killing Joke, Baker simply kills it! (The Joker starts talking at about 2:12 mark.)

WOW. All my doubts have been cast aside! Not that Hamill has been bumped from the top spot, he’s still the best Joker ever. But Baker? I’m super impressed. What do you all think of Baker’s Joker? Worthy of following Hamill in the Arkham series?
