Mark Hamill Shares The Last Jedi Parody Poster Featuring Batman And The Joker
While Mark Hamill as the face of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, the Hollywood celebrity’s voice also reminds fans of his work as DC Comics’ The Joker in the Batman: The Animated Series and in many other animated projects.
However, after Lucasfilm dropped a new poster and trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi during last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration, Hamill shares a new image putting his two most iconic characters together.
Posted on Twitter, the parody poster swaps Hamill’s Luke Skywalker for his Joker, and then Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren for Batman. Daisy Ridley’s lightsaber-holding Rey is also replaced with Harley Quinn. Hamill’s hashtag? The Last Joker (Maybe #thelastjoke would have worked too).

Apparently the image was retweeted from Marcelo Millicay’s Twitter account Millicay was the fan who had made the poster himself had tagged Hamill and Batman: The Animated Series writer Paul Dini and asked the two whether it was “too much to ask for this movie too?”
While a DC probably wouldn’t venture in making an animated movie in the style of The Last Jedi, it’s definitely interesting to think about what might happen if they did. Hamill’s role as Luke may have catapulted his Hollywood career, but the legendary actor’s Joker voice is also pretty iconic. Putting the two together would make for an interesting mix, don’t you think?
Mark Hamill is set to return to the big screen as Luke in Star Wars: The Last Jedi along with Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong'o, Carrie Fisher, Benicio Del Toro, Kelly Marie Tran, and Laura Dern.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinemas on December 15, 2017.
