Say Goodbye to Mark Hamill as the Joker

Many people’s favorite Joker will not be returning for another video game sequel after the upcoming Arkham Asylum 2.

It seems that Hamill, beloved for his portrayal of the quintessential Batman villain in Batman: The Animated Series and the Batman: Arkham Asylum video games, will not be returning after the upcoming sequel, after requiring some major convincing to even be involved in that. Here’s what Hamill had to say about it at IGN:

"My answer to [developers Rocksteady] for the sequel was, ‘Guys, we’re never going to be able to top the original.’ It was so claustrophobic. There were so many abilities like the stealth mode, and all those things you can do with the new technology. I wanted to be able to say I’d gone out on a high note."
