No Mark Hamill-Joker For Injustice: Gods Among Us

March 8, 2013


I know, I know: Mark Hamill has said a few times he was going to quit being the Joker, and, as always, I wished it wasn’t true. Even with an in-depth narrative promised for Injustice: Gods Among Us‘ story mode, Ed Boon has confirmed–via Twitter–that while they have a great voice actor, Mark Hamill will not be joining the cast.


A quick look on IMDB reveals the voice behind the Joker is Richard Epcar, a longtime anime and video game voiceover expert who has lent his talents to everything from Lupin the 3rd, Robotech, and VR Troopers to Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Dead or Alive Dimensions, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. In fact, he’s not just a veteran voice actor, but a veteran with NetherRealm Studios, having voiced Raiden in 2011’s Mortal Kombat.

So can a god of thunder replace a clown prince of crime? We’ll see when Injustice: Gods Among Us releases April, 16th, 2013, to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Born and raised in video games and "geek culture," Masoud has been bred off of fantasy worlds his entire life and doesn't see anything wrong with that. He loves RPGs (especially TRPGs), sandbox games, the sci-fi genre, dieselpunk, art deco, and anything that allows him to create. Having graduated from John Jay College with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, Masoud hopes to one day pen the same novels, comics, movies, and video games he enjoys escaping into when the real world gets too boring.
