Best Actors That Portrayed The Joker In the Batman FranchiseMatrixGuy
The Top Ten
Why so serious?
Ledger gets the edge over Hamil to me. He played Joker so perfectly that I really don't think anyone will perfect a villain like he did with Joker. He made Joker seem believable, and completely insane on the big screen. Joker was thought of as some insane clown before The Dark Knight, now you think of him as just an insane dude. He's a huge reason why The Dark Knight is, in my opinion, the best superhero movie ever made. - JohnnyBoy1246
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.
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_mezV 6 Comments
Yes, definitely. - Oxymoron15
As compelling as Ledger was, no actor brought the character to the screen quite as well as Mark. And he did it with just his voice! Admittedly superior writing and a flawless animation design aided him but still, that voice. No voice has captured as character with such finesse in history except for maybe his father, James Earl Jones. - DysenteryGary
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.V 18 Comments
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!
He was awesome. He was the first Joker and he inspired future versions of the character. The Joker messing around with art was first used in an episode of the 1960s show, not the 1989 film. Also Heath Ledger's Joker laugh sounds similar to Cesar Romero's laugh. - girlcool
He did so good in Under the Red Hood! - Not_A_Weeaboo
This guy is the best Joker in (SPOILER ALERT)
both forms, he does the psychoticness and crime boss style in such and amzing way. He honestly made me love the Joker. I don't think I've seen anyone more dedicated to their roles. Plus, his performance is littered with cool references to other stories like The Killing Joke and The New 52. He even has his own cult that is probably an accurate reflection of the Gotham fanbase without Nygmobblepot. His relationship with Bruce is also the best way to present the Batman-Joker relationship, he doesn't just see him as a roadblock like some itterations (ahem*Nicholson*ahem). Fox can say what they want but Cameron (at least as Jeremiah) has definitely earnt to be and will go down in the hearts of fans as a true Joker.
This actor was playing Jerome, not the Joker. It's not the real Joker so this actor should be on a different list. - girlcool
This guy is great. The Prototype Joker is awesome. He even gets a name, Jerome.

His voice was great. But the concept of Joker looks terrible. - asantalo
What is the point of having him in the top 10 twice?
He is the best joker
Until I have played this game I thought there can't be better Joker than Hamill or Ledger.
I was so wrong...
Jon Doe is definitelly my favourite Joker. Despite the fact he is one of very few Jokers that can actually care for someone, and all the good things he has done, his mental illnes was showed so realistic he was giving me the creeps every time he appeared.
Also seeing him work together with batman was pure gold!
Seriously? Why isn't this guy ranked higher? Did anyone on this list even play the game? It's one of the best portrayals of the Joker ever. You actually pity the Joker!
Also, he makes a nice Impression of Harrisson Ford
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
He was okay. More of a creep than psychopath. Doesn't stand anywhere close to Ledger, Hamill, or Nicholson
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.
I thought he was good. But not the best. - asantaloV 4 Comments
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. - asantalo
He mimicke dHamil perfectly in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
I love his voice. Really underrated. - girlcool
He was good. I hope he plays the Joker again. - girlcool
Very underrated. - girlcool
The Joker wasn't even in Beware the Batman. - th3d4rkkn1ght
