I must be the only person who wasn't moved by Ledger's performance. He was a great actor. I am glad he recieved the Oscar. He is deeply respected in that role by most of the planet.

Before Joaquin Phoenix showed up, it was definitely Heath Ledger all the way. But now I would say it's impossible to compare the two (not only as they BOTH hit a perfect 10 with their character) but also because they both are on such completely different dynamics / sides of the Joker. One (Joaquin Phoenix) wins the most realistic version of the Joker. As all villains have vulnerabilities and weaknesses (no matter how brilliant they are). The other (Heath Ledger) has far more edge, even though the Dark Knight version of Joker had far less vulnerabilities. Heath played the style to the same amount of perfection in performance as Joaquin did. So, that's like asking which diamond is better - when they are BOTH perfectly cut and clear. Perfections done in different shapes. So, now it's impossible to choose, because you just can't. I vote for both. They both did much better than all the other Jokers we have ever had. It's a tie. Jack Nicholson comes in as second, but then again - the script they gave him was cheesy.

<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="275">4:35</a> I disagree with Joaquin Pheonix laugh "upping the creepy factor". When I heard that laugh, I felt bad for him.... He couldn't control things around him, so it must of been infuriating to not have self control of his response to situations (laughing) sometimes either.

Not agreeing with this at all... Heath: the smartest and most serious joker who doesn't laugh too much Pheonix: the real joker who thinks chaos and violence are funny
They are two faces of the same coin, but both wonderfully unique, thanks to the amazing depth of both the actors and the character. I will always prefer the way that Ledger portrayed Joker, but the Phoenix movie is a piece of art. For those reasons, I cannot separate them.

There is not One Joker To discuss about. Ledger's Joker is an Anarchism whose Badness cause to understand Batman's Rule and Orders Phoenix's Joker is a nihilism guy whose actions are individualy personalized but when it become socialized turn to a movement while joker does not plan to. We sympathize with Phoenix's joker because of his deep personal senses which never allowed to be accepted in sociaty. We admire Ledger's joker because he showed even in dark path there are some human realities which our fears cause to ignore.

I don't see how people can even compare the two. Phoenix isnt even a good joker. The "Joker" would have been better as a stand alone movie, rather then then to try to emulate or recreate an iconic character. That is well established as a criminal mastermind, and has a high iq capable of coercing anybody to his will no matter how criminally insane the act. The Phoenix joker was just a mentally ill man that had fallen through the cracks of society unable to get the help he needed. Not to mention his intelligence was below average and he was socially awkward.

I don't mean no disrespect at all when I say this... But y'all need to stop "clowning" Jared Leto's Joker. He did the best he could. Stop saying he is a joke. It's rude and disrespectful. And to all the people who make fun of Jared Leto's Joker until I see/hear that you got casted the role of the Joker and you deal with the pressure of playing this character... Stop it. To be completely honest, I love every last Joker ever created. All the actors over the years who have played the Joker did they best they could why doesn't anyone else see that?

I'm conflicted. I like both of them. 😍 Round 1: Both of them Round 2: Both of them Round 3: I think Heath took this one. (But I like both of them). Round 4: I think Joaquin took this one. (But I still like both of them).still Round 5: Both of them killed his voice. Both of these actors win frfr. Joker was portrayed by of these actors perfect. I do prefer Heath Ledger version of Joker but both of these actors did perfect. Joaquin Phoenix's Joker has also become one of my favorite Jokers. That's why if someone where to ask me who played Joker better between these 2 males... I wouldn't be able to choose. 😍

I don't think there can be an actor who can play Joker better than him at least for another 9 years. Was he the main character of the movie like Phoenix?No. But was he the one that was talked about the most when someone opens a conversation about movie for these 9 years?Yes. Than that means he really left a huge effect on us.

<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="654">10:54</a> exactly!! Because it wasnt always the joker. He hadn’t truly became the joker till the end. He was a normal guy and over the course of events in the movie he transformed slowly into the joker meanwhile heaths joker was always full blown joker from the get-go
David Pryor

This is unfair .., considering heath passed away a lot of people will give it to him just because of his early death. But realistically you can’t really compare the 2 since heath played joker when he was full blown joker but Phoenix played an origin of joker , he was never full blown joker till the very end. So one is the joker n the other is the person before he becomes the joker Tough to compare

Ledger played “the Joker”. Phoenix played “Arthur Fleck (?)”. The Joker is defined by his obsession with Batman and wanting to create chaos. Arthur is more of a victim of the system and circumstance. Plus we can deduce that Phoenix was in his late 30s-early 40s as Joker. This would put him in at least in his 60s when he faces off with Batman. We don’t KNOW if Arthur becomes the Joker or just an symbolic like figure in which the identity was assumed by a fanatic (as we know many exist in that world). As far as I’m concerned they both portrayed different characters with similar tendencies.

Seeing the comments and slamming my head against the wall 😂... the film "Joker" isn't really based on the backstory of Joker, it is based on mental illness.... so you can't compare them with each other, if your looking for the superhero/villian shit.... Heath Ledger wins

I didn’t want to but I watched the new joker. I considered it to be a rather rude move to try to remake the joker after Heaths recent performance. That was uncool regardless. But I watched the new joker and I think Phoenix did a good job acting. I think he portrayed the character he intended very well. But his joker was actually kind of a bitch. Sorry. He was pretty soft. Now Heath on the other hand. His joker was carved from solid steel. His joker was a ruthless badass. I’ve heard theories of how Heath’s joker was a frontline veteran. A door kicker. A man pushed to the brink. Forgotten and abandoned. So he formed his own justice. Through chaos. Sorry. We’re kinda fucked up. But Heath gave us the joker. Phoenix tried and failed. Best possible attempt. But nowhere near enough.

Dare not to compare and take anything away from these amazing actors who did an incredible job keeping you at the edge of your seat and hungry for the next scene. To compare makes one have to choose and it's not applicable. Both, did a job worth equal praise, putting their own unforgettable twist and personality fully into their character! Winner? Phoenix and Ledger. Period. Sorry mojo, but having to sit thru this video and feel bad that either was less in the end? I have only one word to say...DISLIKE!

Everyone here saying heath ledger is better, he got to get more deep into madness bcz he was in a superheroes movie stuff. I'm sure if Joaquin was with a batman he would have been in complete madness as well. So there's no much he could do.all the madness he was allowed to get to; was basically limited to real life or real existing or real world, so it was limited to possible craziness. No extreme actions.on the other hand fantasy movies have more creativity then real life case movies. Just imagine there was a batman with Joaquin. I can smell the madness through the screen. Not a joke

So true when she said that we hang off every word that Heath Joker says. There's a reason he won an Oscar for it. And OMG that scene when he blows up the hospital: Fun Fact, Heath Ledger ad-libbed it. It was supposed to blow up the first time he presses the detonator, but the explosives failed in real life, so Heath had to think quick and press it again and again because it wasn't a CGI explosion. It was a real building rigged that had to be done in one take. (source from IMDB)

Hmmm... I wonder how difficult it would be to combine all of the characteristics of both into one continuous character, in one movie? It may be impossible, but it would require a very long movie with a great amount of focus. As for me, I can’t really say who was “best.” Yes I think Ledger did an incredible acting job as the known agent of chaos, but I think Phoenix provided a good deal more depth and development.

They were comparable only IF they were both with Nolan, in the same room, shooting the exact same sequence. 'cause ledger came 12 years later the previous one, plus the previous one was the most cutting-edge joker to that point, plus the actor DIED and became a legend. Comparing two actors with such a different scenario is like trying to compare two language dubs in two different scenes of two different movies, instead of comparing two languages in the same exact sequence, that, if you ever tried, gives that easy and immediate feeling of "oh ok, this objectively sounds better"
