A new rumor suggests Mark Hamill will play the Joker in the Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover.

The rumor comes from ComicBookCast2, who states, “New rumors suggest the Joker is about to make his big appearance in the Arrowverse played by a very familiar face, Mark Hamill himself.”

The rumor comes after it was announced that Kevin Conroy, known for voicing Batman and Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Animated Series, Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Justice League: Doom, and more, would be playing a live-action version of an older Bruce Wayne at a panel at The Television Critic Association’s summer event.

Hamill is no stranger to the Arrowverse. He appeared as James Jesse aka The Trickster on The CW’s The Flash in three episodes with his most recent appearance back in 2016. Hamill had previously portrayed The Trickster in the 1991 The Flash TV series and gave voice to the character in the animated  Justice League Unlimited series.

He also is an icon when it comes to the Joker. He’s given voice to the character in a number of animated shows and video games including Batman: The Animated Series, Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy, the Justice League animated series, and even the WB’s live-action Birds of Prey TV series from 2002. He most recently took on the role of the Joker in the Lego DC Super-Villains video game as well as in the animated Justice League Action series.

Crisis on Infinite Earths was originally a 12-issue limited comic book series written by Marv Wolfman with art by George Pérez. It was the centerpiece of DC Comics’ major crossover event that intended to abandon the idea of the DC Multiverse and create a single Earth. The story saw major characters like Barry Allen and Supergirl die as both heroes and villains were forced to unite in order to defeat the Anti-Monitor.

A previous report indicated the The CW crossover will also feature Lynda Carter, Burt Ward, and Tom Welling.
