TV Guide has announced that Michael Emerson will be voicing the Joker in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2. Although the Joker will not appear in Part 1, which releases later this month, the special features will showcase the voice talent for the second part.
Emerson talked briefly about his upcoming role. "He's one of those great villains that an actor like me likes to play because he has layers — he has a face for the world and a face for himself. He is, in a way, a villain who is a natural actor. All of that is that is delightful and confounding at the same time."
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 release September 25. Part 2, featuring Emerson, will release in early 2013.
