Yes, you've read it right. Star Wars. Why would I ask such ridiculous question? Well, the answer lies in the voice behind Joker in the animated series and most of Batman games, who is no other than Mark Hamill, known from his little role as a boy who didn't want to work as a moisture farmer any more, and actors are well known to introduce such Easter eggs about their other movies.

  • @JakeGould Yes, and whoever else. But to be honest I don't recall that anyone at any stage was advertising animated Batman as "movie with an actor that played Luke Skywalker" and personally I didn't even know for a long time that it was THE Mark Hamil behind the killer clown. Anyway, the question was about any easter eggs, no matter who placed them.

  • Also in recent "The Flash" TV series he played Joker's ripoff, The Trickster, and in one of the episodes he had a nice Darth Vader moment: youtube.com/watch?v=KWxZ6hmWbFA Commented Dec 21, 2015 at 14:43
  • Note that Hamill also played the Trickster (twice) in the "Flash" TV show from 1990-91. Might be interesting to have him encounter John Wesley Shipp's Earth-2 Flash (as Shipp was Barry Allen/The Flash in that 1990 show). And it's likely that his 1990 turn as the Trickster predates his voice-over role as the Joker, as BTAS debuted in 1992.

    @HBhatia - I'm honestly not sure how much more blatant they could make it, short of writing in the word "Jedi" and crossing it out with the word "Joker"

    Accepted for the "floss be with you". "Return of..." is bit too common.

    As an aside, the 1991 SNES game "Return of the Joker" was re-released as "Revenge of the Joker". This would seem to be a clear reference to Return of the Jedi's original title "Revenge of the Jedi", albeit pre-dating Hamill's involvement by two years.

    @Richard Also worth mentioning that the logo behind the words looks an awful lot like the logo for the Rebel Alliance, twisted slightly to one side.
