It’s Official, Troy Baker Kills as the Joker

Junkie Monkeys: During a Batman: Arkham Origins Comic Con panel Troy Baker decided to flex his voice acting skills once again. The following video was taken by a guest who attended the panel, and if Mark Hamill were to see this, we think he would be very proud.

Good replacement. Sounds just like Mark Hamill, and that's exactly as the Joker should sound.

Ezz20131082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

yeah the sound is very close
Tory Baker is really good at what he do

but no one will ever be as good as Mark Hamill when it come to the Joker
and KC as Batman voice

If it's anything near Mark Hamill then it will be good.

aCasualGamer1081d ago

He sounds absolutely phenomenal as the Joker, really great. Just as Hamill but his own twist to it.

But... I've always wanted a darker Joker, a darker version of the myth. I'm ofcourse speaking of John DiMaggio. What i wouldn't do to see that man voice Joker in the next batman.

PurpHerbison1081d ago (Edited 1081d ago )

I think it's above average though.

I dont understand why ppl want him to do a 100% exact copy of hamill. If anything he adds a new twist to the voice of the joker and I like it.

ChrisW1081d ago

To me it sounds like a mix between Mark Hamill and Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving).

I really like it!

Hicken1081d ago

Because Hamill's version is, essentially, the definitive version. You don't mess with perfection.

TopDudeMan1081d ago

I thought they were gonna struggle to find another voice actor for the joker. But he knocked that out the park!

-Foxtrot1082d ago

I don't think he's that good as The Joker to be honest, rather have Mark Hamill

Treezy5041082d ago

No one could ever replace Mark Hamill, but I think he perfectly imitated Hamill's Joker.

-Foxtrot1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

I just don't see it to be honest, I think I've spent too much time growing up hearing Mark Hamill to be honest.

He just has one of those voices that are a perfect fit for the character.

I hope he returns for Rocksteadys game if it's Batman

Anyway just my opinion btw

SilentNegotiator1081d ago

"I think he perfectly imitated Hamill's Joker"

Sans the laugh, yes. But it's still a great laugh. This guy will make a great joker.

vork771081d ago

if you heard injustice joker that is pretty close

Pintheshadows1082d ago

I understand your views but I think you may need to grieve and move on. Mark Hamill was amazing but he isn't the only Joker.

HeavenlySnipes1082d ago

He sounded almost exactly like Hamil

-Foxtrot1082d ago

That's exaggerating it a lot

Enemy1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

^ Not nearly as exaggerating as the way you let nostalgia cloud your judgment. This guy is an incredible voice actor, and he sounds so much like Mark Hamill, in some ways better, that it's actually dumb to think he wouldn't be a good Joker when he already is.

-Foxtrot1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

@Enemy

I'm not I'm just stating my opinion, don't go to insults please and try to twist it around to make my opinion look small.

" guy is an incredible voice actor "

...when did I say he wasn't ? I'm not saying he's a bad voice actor, he's good but I just don't think the Joker is like Mark Hamills or much close to him, I've seen the trailers to Batman Origins and he doesn't sound much like him in MY opinion. It's better going off the trailers then a crappy video like this where it's all echo-like.

Are you actually judging the voice by whats coming out of his mouth or just "Troy Baker" in general because it looks like a lot of people here are doing the latter

kenshiro1001081d ago (Edited 1081d ago )

Foxtrot, are you kidding? Seriously...?
I thought that was amazing. That brought me back to my childhood right away.

Troy Baker comes VERY close to sounding like Mark Hamill and I've grown up listening to Hamill's voice ever since the very beginning of The Animated Series.

optimus1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

this new joker is pretty damn close to mark hamill's joker and that's better than getting someone that would give it an entirely different tone ala' the new splinter cells and metal gears.

optimus1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

@Foxtrot...deducting 5 points for the overuse of the phrase "to be honest". i never understood why people actually say that as if to say they are dishonest under the circumstance...(it's a pet peeve of mine, as well as people saying "in my opinion"- well who's opinion would it be if it's not yours?? do you normally speak for the rest of the world in your everyday life??)...anyhow...

this new voice actor does a very good job keeping it close to what we are all used to...i don't think they would have given him the job if he didn't.

BigDollarZoe9541081d ago (Edited 1081d ago )

was pretty good imo close enough its not Mark i know if you could do better give it a try voice acting looks tough otherwise Troy Baker a good Joker

JackStraw1081d ago

he sounds literally exactly like him. stop.

overrated441081d ago

You should probably get used to being disappointed then because Hamill has retired himself from the Joker role, and it's pretty doubtful that he is coming back.

Wow, the more I see of Origins the more I am looking forward to it. I know it isn't Rocksteady but WB Games seems to be hitting all the right notes. Can't wait.
