Mark Hamill is beloved, let’s just get that out of the way first. Not only is he iconic for his role as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, he’s also a prolific voice actor. He’s most notable for his Joker from Batman the Animated Series. But he’s also done a few other DC characters you may not know of. And this short, he gets to show off his characters.
In this Justice League Action short “Missing the Mark” (ha!), Hamill plays himself, waiting on a ride to pick him up. A purple car speeds up and the driver is none other than Joker. Before he can get out, Trickster comes into the car to block him as Joker locks him in and speeds off. Hamill played Trickster in the 90s live-action Flash TV series.
During the car ride, Joker and Trickster make barbs at one another and Hamill begins to mimic the two villains to make them more mad at one another. This causes them to crash into some grass where Swamp Thing, another character Hamill has played, catches the car and villains. They also make a meta joke that Hamill is a talented voice actor, causing Joker to ask what a voice actor is.
It’s a really cute clip and really funny. Mark Hamill is always a riot and really game to be included in some great, small features. It’s also great to see DC giving some love back to Mark after his incredible performances. It’s a short I recommend to any DC fan.
