I've been critically reviewing fandoms and geek culture for eight years. After spending four years of college focusing on literary analysis, I now apply that passion to my hobbies and love for the geekdom.

Joker is one of the most controversial films of 2019. Between hardcore Batman universe fans, and the subject matter of it’s content, it has been a huge conversation. While critic’s remain split on the entirety of Joker as a movie. Many come together in agreement that Joaquin Phoenix put on a stunning performance.

One of those praising the performance is Mark Hamill himself. If you follow the Batman universe at all, you may remember him playing a huge role. That role being the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. The actor who has played the Joker the most is Hamill. Who has regularly voiced the character in animated projects and video games since 1992. Hamill most recently voiced the Joker in an episode of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? which was broadcast last month. Giving Hamill the reputation as the Joker. Just as much as Kevin Conroy is the Batman.

This is what he had to say via tweet:

Joker is already considered an Oscar contender. Phoenix’s portrayal of the Joker is looking like a serious challenger for the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2020. Previously Heath Ledger as the Joker won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor The Dark Knight back in 2009. It’s possible that Phoenix might be able to accomplish something similar during the 92nd Academy Awards in 2020.
