Mark Hamill Will Voice the Joker Once Again in Justice League Action
Warner Bros. just announced a new DC Comics adaptation on Cartoon Network, Justice League Action, focusing on, well, the Justice League doing action-y things. It will feature the return of voice actor Kevin Conroy as Batman, and most excitingly, the return of Mark Hamill as the Joker.

Hamill has voiced the DC supervillain in various media in the Batman franchise since Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, and has arguably become the most iconic version of the character, aside from Heath Ledger's interpretation. He was also recently confirmed to reprise his role in The Killing Joke, the upcoming animated adaptation of Alan Moore's beloved and controversial graphic novel. 

The show looks to have a similar aesthetic to Teen Titans Go!, and will also have 11-minute episodes. In addition to the Trinity and Joker, it will feature Lex Luthor, Booster Gold, and more from the DC oeuvre.

Here's the official (and enthusiastic) description from DC Comics:

Opening quote
Featuring the return of Kevin Conroy as Batman, the Dark Knight will join with Superman and Wonder Woman and the rest of DC's iconic team of heroes in a series that promises to put the action back in heroics. Whether defending the Earth, facing invaders from space, or battling the bizarre forces of magic, the always-rotating team of Justice League heroes, are up to any challenge. Episodes will be eleven minutes in length, meaning that the action will be tightly-paced and exciting. And awesome!
Closing quote

There's no word yet on when Justice League Action will premiere, but it will likely be ready in time for the 2016-2017 television season.
