We finally got our first revealed newcomer for the relaunch. And it's none other than the Joker himself. It also appears that Mark Hamill is back as his voice actor.

Here's hoping we get more reveals and Joker gameplay soon.

Tony Huynh also confirmed in a tweet that Joker won't be the only newcomer at launch. He said that the Joker is "just the beginning".

Btw, the design and the trailer match what Papagenos said 2 years ago about Joker, so whatever info he had back then is pretty much legit.

Which means that we should expect

Samurai Jack reveal fairly soon as Papagenos was fairly confident he was coming

DCAU and killing joke I imagine
Would they be able to do his hat from KJ? I feel like it might mess with hitboxes a little given the wide brim... but either way, it'd be a favourite of mine.

I'd personally also like to see his white suit from The Dark Knight Returns. Feels like a snazzy look befitting of the clown prince of crime.

Or just add the Suicide Squad (2016) one to **** with people

Why not just make a Dark Knight Costume for Joker to recapture Heath Ledger's appearance of the character aswell as his famous lines.

They better start pumping these character reveals. We basically know this character was done over a year ago
I mean...I'd bet money that pretty much all of the characters at relaunch and a while after relaunch will be ones we knew about, like Joker. It just makes sense to get those out since they've been complete for like, ever. There are sleeping animations in the game tied to the Wicked Witch's poppy fields, the Instagram post had music from Beetlejuice, we have a Townsville stage, Scooby made a quick cameo in the NHL thing, and one of the LotR stages seems to have become Aku's Lair. Those alone cover a LOT of the characters who, like Joker, we knew were coming and actually had significant work done.

By the way, we have a reveal trailer:

Well, guess I'm eating my words. We do, in fact, have new characters for the relaunch. I wish I didn't have to color myself surprised, but this is WBD we're talking about.

I'm willing to bet Bugs was willing to play along and stick to the script, because I also doubt he'd be knocked cold by The Joker. On the other hand, Batman and Shaggy & Bugs and Arya were two of the first duos revealed, if not the first two. I'm probably the only person who remembered that.

Either they got a Mark Hamil soundalike, or Mark's getting up there in age. If the latter is true, I'm glad they got him to do one last bout with Kevin Conroy. Joker's design looks good, too.

New logo variant dropped, and we have Shaggy, Bugs, Tom and Jerry, Velma, Harley Quinn, Iron Giant, Batman, Gizmo, Rick, and Marvin. This implies that no one was cut between beta and relaunch. I hope this is the case, because I wouldn't want to see something like Mewtwo in Brawl happen for a live service game.

Why on earth would they cut anyone? It's the same game, not a sequel.

One thing's for sure: Mark Hamill is really bad at sticking to the promise that any of his Joker roles are The Last Time I'm Ever Going To Play Joker, I Swear To God. Seriously, he's been doing it ever since he reprised the Joker for a Robot Chicken sketch combining the Shawshank Redemption with Batman.

That said, he is 72, so something is going to have to force him to finally stop playing the Joker soon.

He later said at some point that as long as Kevin was in a project, he's in. After Kevin's passing he has shared that he no longer wishes to play Joker to honor his friend as it's not the same without Conroy.

That said, i do wonder if he's gonna make an exception for games such as this. I really doubt it but there's some leeway if u get other characters voiced by him. Anyone wanna make a Skips fan account?

It's entirely possible Hamill recorded his lines way ahead of time, before Conroy's death even.

We know no one is being cut. This is just the same game being relaunched, not a new product. If anyone was to be I could only really see Lebron but they'd have said. It's safe to say everyone is staying.

it's confirmed to be Mark, he's just much older.

It’s official:

Mark Hamill is The Joker.

As a reminder, Joker’s full gameplay overview will be Monday morning.

Edit: Have an image:

I think it's interesting that Bugs Bunny is the Jack on the playing card. I probably would have gone with either Red Hood or Superman (the latter if we're limited to characters already on the roster), but it's such a tiny detail it doesn't matter

Minor update:

Custom Games will now have support for exactly 3 players.

In the Beta, you either needed to add a bot or drop one player.

Edit: One more thing. The EULA (End User License Agreement) was updated to support more languages, including Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Korean, and Japanese. Thus, it can be safe to say Asian servers will be made available, especially since the game was confirmed to come to Japan.

How would we feel if this was this year's character release lineup? I don't necessarily believe this is what will happen, but one way that things could happen.

Release: Joker, Scooby, Powerpuff Girls, Wicked Witch of the West, Pickle Rick (clone)

June: Shazam (Black Adam clone), Samurai Jack

July: Danerys Tarnygen (Game of Thrones)

August: Dexter, Fiona (Finn clone)

September: Daffy Duck

October: Beetlejuice

November: Gandalf, Stevonnie (hybrid clone; takes normal moves from Wonder Woman and specials from Steven Universe)

December: Marceline
