Despite Jared Leto‘s controversial methods in preparation to play The Joker in Suicide Squad, many people loved and praised his performance, especially one celebrity superstar in particular: Mark Hamill.
That’s right, the man behind Luke Skywalker and the voice of The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series told Polygon that he “loved” Leto’s performance, but remained generous saying he “hasn’t seen an interpretation yet that made him go, “That was terrible.”
“Everyone brings a different spin to the character… I don’t think there’s a definitive version of The Joker and I don’t think there can be. It’s like Hamlet really. It’ll be constantly redefined,” he added.
Hamill first voiced the iconic character from 1992 until 1994 and continued to bring The Joker to life in Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993), The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999), Batman Beyond (2000), Static Shock, Birds of Prey, Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009), Batman: Arkham City (2011), Batman: Arkham Knight (2015), and most recently Justice League Action and The Killing Joke.
