With the recent DCEU movie turning out to be not as good as it could have been, there’s still no beating the Justice League animated series as the finest screen adaptation of DC’s super-team to date. Airing from 2001 to 2006 (if you count the revamped Justice League Unlimited as the same show), the series is still remembered fondly – hence the interest in getting the cast back together for a reunion.
As part of the ongoing social media campaign to get Warner Bros. Animation to put something together, actress Susan Eisenberg – who played Wonder Woman – shared a Tweet to whip up some support from fans. In response, one individual questioned whether Mark Hamill could be involved as well, given that he played the Joker in several episodes of the show, which was a spinoff of the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series.
Can @HamillHimself come too?

Eisenberg responded with a promise that she would love for Hamill to be included. And, unsurprisingly, it looks like Hamill’s interested, too.
You know where to reach me Susan. 😍- mh

The idea for the Justice League reunion is to get WB to produce an animated movie that follows the continuity of the animated series, or at the very least gets the original cast back together once more – which included Kevin Conroy (Batman), George Newbern (Superman), Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern), Michael Rosenbaum (Flash) and others.
Thankfully, there’s already been a DC animated movie that did something similar. Last year’s Batman and Harley Quinn reunited BTAS‘s Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester, as well as echoing the show’s animation style. Unfortunately, it was tonally very different, which caused it to receive some backlash from fans.
As for getting Hamill back on board as the Joker, that shouldn’t prove too difficult. The actor has been playing the Clown Prince of Crime for decades and looks happy to keep on going. Most recently, he voiced the part in the Justice League Action cartoon.
If you want to see a Justice League reunion happen as well, you can drum up some interest by using the #JLReunion hashtag on Twitter. Fingers crossed, eh?
