Batman: Arkham Origins' New Joker Showcases His Voice

Mark Hamill has been playing the Joker's voice for more than a decade, but he recently retired his take on the character. For Batman: Arkham Origins, Troy Baker has stepped in to fill the clown's shoes, and he offered a taste of his Joker at New York Comic Con.

The clip below is from a panel covering the development of Batman: Arkham Origins. They talk about bringing Baker on board to play the Joker in the game, and he reads a monologue from Alan Moore's comic, The Killing Joke.

Troy Baker has been a hugely prolific video game voice actor this year playing the roles of Booker in Bioshock Infinite and Joel in The Last of Us, and many others. Batman: Arkham Origins is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on October 25.

  • I'll admit I was a little skeptical about the new voices for the joker and batman, Troy Baker seems to have quite the talent! I will also hope to enjoy Roger Smith as he takes on the new voice of Batman.
  • He does a very good job with The Joker.
  • Wow. After that I wouldn't mind seeing him take on any and all future roles of the Joker. That was impressive.

  • He does a very good hamill joker, i'm happy with it, as should everyone else be.
  • at this point, I'm surprised he hasn't been a part any all of the games this year.
  • I'm disappointed. The voice does sound enough like Mark Hamill and it's well done and you can see he's really into it and all. But Troy shouldn't have been trying to imitate someone and should've found his OWN take on the character.

    Don't get me started on this is a prequel to the Hamill games. Troy should have found his own take to be used on future iterations of Batman games and cartoons and had his own contribution to the character. Now he's just a really good Mark Hamill impersonator and nothing more.
  • I think I can safely say that Troy Baker is amazing at everything.
    Plus he's damn charming
  • Wow, Baker is pretty much a dead ringer for Hamill.
  • It looks like someone's waving around Yuna's staff there at the end.

  • Troy Baker is the new Nolan North.
  • There's a reason this guy keeps getting work. His range is incredible.
  • Soooo... what happened to Nolan North? Did his career go South?

    Is Rocksteady going to create anymore Batman games or have they moved on to something else?

    Why is Kevin Conroy not on board?

    Why have I been living under a rock?
  • wow he does a good job for the new joker

  • I was already pretty pumped about Baker's inclusion in the Arkham Origins cast but now I'm completely sold. The guy has an astronomical amount of talent and I have no doubt he'll do The Joker justice.

  • He needs to work on his laugh alittle, but other than that i'm sold.
  • Wow. He can even do the Hamill laugh. He's crazy good!

  • Such a talented Actor.

  • I was extremely surprised that he was announced as the Joker, but I knew they had to have picked him for a reason.  And with that monologue...WOW, it's pretty obvious why.  Troy Baker is an amazing voice actor, and he was a charming guy when I met him at an anime convention in the past.  He definitely deserves the work/parts he's been getting.

  • I wonder what mark hamil thinks of this?
