                    I think that the second joker movie will be better because he just became joker and Hasn’t gone through the stuff the ledger joker did in the movie leger joker had been joker for a long time and know what to do now while Phoenix joker is new to the whole villain job and stuff so I feel like the second Phoenix joker movie will blow ledgers joker out of the water

                        I would have loved to see a Daniel Day Lewis joker. That’s would have been amazing.

                            It's not a Glasgow smile, it's a Chelsea smile. You're thinking of a Glasgow kiss, which is a headbutt.

                              We can all agree about that Joaquin Phoenix is the perfect replacement of Heath Ledger :(

                                      Ledger no doubt Phoenix was a nerd weak virgin guy hallucinating he was the actual Joker ( pathetic soy boy )

                                        They’re both great but Joaquin played Arthur Fleck and he is Arthur Fleck.

                                          You can’t compare them, they’re completely different aspects of the character

                                            Phoenix's laugh is nowhere nearly as effective as Ledger's.

                                                You can't really have a conversation about joker without bringing up jack Nicholson joker. The movie itself wasn't as good as the other two, but his joker was written the closest to classic joker. He had the look, the gadgets, and the right look. Ledger was a good combination of funny and dark, while phoenix really did well to show the psychological path to becoming joker. All were good. I didn't care much for suicide squad or that version of joker though so Leto comes in last.

                                                      I see a lot of comments here who says it is not fair to compare the two. This, too me, reveals the bias people have. As soon as they don't like one thing and love another, they compare. If they love both of them, you should‘t compare.

                                                      I'm talking about Leto's Joker here. People bash him left and right because they- COMPARE - the Jokers. Leto's Joker ofc sucks if you compare him to Ledger's Joker. But they're totally different movies, aren't they?

                                                      I think it really is NOT fair to compare Leto's Joker to any of them. It is MORE fair to compare Heath to Joaquin, because they have more real takes on the character. They both starr in movies that are more on the realistic side of things. None of the movies are comedies.

                                                      Whilst SUICIDE SQUAD is a totally stupid, overblown, fun comedy-action-cartoon-film. So it really is not fair at all to compare Leto to either Heath or Joaquin.

                                                      So please - if you think it's not fair to compare Heath to Joaquin, do not compare Leto's to either of them.

                                                      I enjoyed Leto's Joker a lot, btw. Yeees, he overdid it a few times. But I can live with that.

                                                        This is ridiculous. They, along with Nickelson, were all fantastic. They are three different jokers with three different storylines. As an origin story you could not expect this Joker to have developed the ability to "scheme" yet. That started only with the talk show shooting.

                                                          Without any doubt Phoenix win the title.

                                                                Two different storylines, you get two different Jokers. The Dark Knight wasn't based in the 80's, and the 80's are a lot different. They're happy, and bright, but The Dark Knight (at least in my research) takes place in 2006. A darker time, a darker Joker. But we shouldn't compare them, we should like them the way they are.
