SALT LAKE CITY — Mark Hamill has no ill feelings about the new “Joker” movie.

Hamill, who famously voiced The Joker character in a number of animated “Batman” projects, tweeted Wednesday about how excited he is for the upcoming “Joker” movie starring Joaquin Phoenix, according to ComicBook.com.

“A diabolically delicious character + a superb actor + a brilliant writer/director = YES PLEASE!!!” he tweeted.

“Joker” dropped its first trailer on Wednesday.

The film's description reads, "Drama. 'Joker' centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study but also a broader cautionary tale."

The film hits theaters on Oct. 4.
