Best Actors That Portrayed The Joker In the Batman FranchiseMatrixGuy
The Top Ten
The way I see it, there are two ways you can be the best joker; animated and live action. Hamill is clearly the latter and Ledger, the former. If these two had switched places in their versions, neither would ever held up. They basically both just made their own versions of the character and completely owned those versions.
Heath Ledger was definitely the best at playing the Joker and I'm not just saying that because he's dead. The Dark Knight was a great movie and the Joker had really cool makeup. - Catlover2004
Pre-2008, you think of the joker as some weird clown guy. Post-2008, you think of the joker as something made of pure nightmares.
2016: " the joker is so hot with Harley Quinn and tattoos are sexy" I hate Jared Leto joker - Alxg_mez
I like Mark Hamill better than Heath Ledger. - asantaloV 4 Comments
The fact that Heath Ledger is number one shows how uneducated people are about batman. Ledger didn't play joker, he played some insane guy with white makeup that's all, he didn't act anything like the traditional Joker everyone loved. Hamill is the joker, when you imagine the joker, you hear Hamill. Any educated Batman fan will say Hamill is Joker, not Ledger. - roflcash4
Hamill was a fantastic Joker but he never had to actually act as The Joker. He said that he would never be able to portray the character on screen whereas Ledger had to not only create a great Joker voice but also have the body language and act like the Joker. He became the Joker. And as for the comic accuracy, it's an adaptation and Ledger was going for the more modern take on the character not the silver age version. And if you look at the more recent Batman comics Joker is very similar to Ledger's Joker. - HarryPotter12
He has that iconic bone chilling voice and laugh that the joker should have. He has been the joker for over 20 years featuring in animation to the Arkham games that have made the joker a iconic and loved character without Hamill the joker wouldn't be as popular since he appeared In all forms of media appealing to children to teens to adults.
From Batman: TAS to Killing Joke. Mark Hamill is the best. He was amazing in Killing Joke. My wish is always granted when he plays as Joker in the graphic novel I always love. He was awesome in the Arkham Games big time. He deserves to be number 1 than Heath Ledger. - asantalo

He is the most comic accurate representation of the joker yet so you got to give him that for sticking true to the comics.
Nicholson all the way!
I really loved his Joker, I hate how they basically cut him out of the movie, he deserved way more screen time; also Catwoman should have been in this movie. I LOVE Harley Quinn, but it was basically her movie. Katana got like 2 lines. - Stevenuniversefangirl
Leto is to punk and tattooed to really be the joker he doesn't have the look of Nicholson, the personality of ledger or the voice of Hamill to really reletate to the joker. He seems just like some street gang leader who likes pink and green.
He was okay. More of a creep than psychopath. Doesn't stand anywhere close to Ledger, Hamill, or Nicholson

His voice was great. But the concept of Joker looks terrible. - asantalo
This guy is great. The Prototype Joker is awesome. He even gets a name, Jerome.
My sisters true love
He is very good. When I first heard him in Assault on Arkham I thought he was Hamill. He also did a great job in Arkham Origins. - JasonTodd
I think that he did great in Arkham Origins. - asantaloV 1 Comment
