The lights are on
Mark Hamill will appear as the Joker in a DC Universe Online expansion, despite saying he was retiring the character back in October on twitter.
It's possible that the dialogue for, "The Last Laugh" DLC may have been recorded before Hamill announced his retirement, but I like to believe that he just couldn't stay away.

he is an incredible voice actor. it's a real shame that he's cackled his last Joker laugh. but, better to go out on top.
batman the joker chronicles? maybe
I think him retiring the character was more due to the direction they were going with the Batman games. Glad he's coming back
Well at last year's VGAs, Hamill did say that his 'retirement' will only last until there is something equally amazing as Arkham City to get involved in. He said that he wants his last performance as the Joker to be really powerful, and if another project of such caliber rears its head, he will be ready to take it on. This is also the same thing he said at the end of 2010 after Arkham Asylum, and he did return for City.
Is this a hint at the quality of this expansion? Kyle Hilliard could be correct on the convenient timing of its release, but I must argue that his recording for this DLC could not predate his work on Arkham City, which is long after he decided to minimize his Joker roles. And while this is a bit of stagnant speculation, I know I speak for many when I say that I'd love to see him come back to the Joker, for he owns that character. :)
Mark is back from retirement? BEST NEWS STORY EVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice. He is the best Joker ever!
If it's added content i'm sure he was contractually obliged to return.
this made my day!
I'm not happy to hear this. With all due respect to Mark Hamill, his rendition of the joker always sounded too cartoonish to me, and never truly had the sense of evil and menace that Heath Ledger's portrayal did. Even compared to Jack Nicholson's joker, Mark Hamill's seems a bit goofy, more like Caesar Romero's in the Batman tv series.
i hope this is true
Hamill will always be the best joker
I like to think that he couldn't stay away either. I mean, c'mon! It's Mark Hamill. There is no one else that should voice the joker imo.
He was the joker of my childhood, and he will always be my joker. I kinda have a sick, twisted, Harley Quinn thing going for Mark Hamill's joker voice, I'm just saying.
Never played this game
