One of the highlights of MultiVersus is that, for the most part, Warner Bros. has recruited nearly all of the original voice actors for its eclectic lineup. It’s an amazing attention to detail, and data mining suggests it’s about to get better. According to the documents, it looks like Mark Hamill may be reprising his role as the Joker.
whistleblower lesul Twitter removed some of the voice lines they found in the game, which sounded eerily similar to Hamill’s work. He first voiced Batman’s favorite nemesis in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series. He’s since returned to various animation works, including Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy.
The leaked audio clips were spoken to the announcer and included joker quips like “Think you lost that, bucko”, “dot blue dummy” and “that’s who you’re going with?” . While this might be a convincing voice, Player First Games’ previous commitment to the original voice actor of the Multiversus character leads me to believe that this is really Hamill reprising his role as the Clown Prince of Crime.

While the Joker has yet to be officially announced as a fighter, his future addition was leaked back in March along with a massive roster of other pop culture icons. If this list is correct, we should also expect Robin and Poison Ivy to join at some point in the future. Personally, I’m more excited about the prospect of Raven and Neo in Teen Titans in The Matrix.
MultiVersus got off to a rocky start, but Player First Games has made good progress in sorting it out. As I said in my preseason review, MultiVersus has a good chance of being the best Smashlike on PC, and constant tweaks — like improvements to hitboxes — give me hope.
