First announced at last Summer's Comic-Con, now it's confirmed Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy are returning for the animated Batman: The Killing Joke movie, which will see Hamill reprise as Joker, with Conroy as the voice of Batman. The image above is a first look from the film.

In addition, CBR has it that Tara Strong will voice Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Ray Wise will provide the voice for Commissioner Gordon.

"The chance to work once again with Kevin Conroy, my favorite Batman, in what some consider the definitive origin of this iconic villain is a dream come true for me," Hamill said in a statement. "I am beyond thrilled to return as The Joker in The Killing Joke!"

Kevin Conroy offered: “I’ve had the great privilege of voicing Batman for more than two decades, and some of my favorite moments in the recording booth have been alongside Mark Hamill. Mark always enables me to be a better actor. I’m thrilled that we’re both back to bring these characters to life in one of the most heralded Batman/Joker stories of all time.”

The Batman: The Killing Joke animated movie will premiere at this Summer's Comic-Con, with a later release date to-be-announced.

Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy are also voicing their respective characters for the new Justice League Action animated series coming to Cartoon Network.
