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.

Newsflash this movie was about a joker , not the Joker from Batman

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.

10:54 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

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

I'm just happy we don't have to deal with Jared Leto (notice how I didn't say "Jared Leto's Joker")

As ledger said himself, when you cross an unstoppable with an immovable object paradox happens. Both are just good in their own categories.

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.

Phoenix is better and more realistic in my opinion...realism is what appeals to me. Ledger was really good. I think people like Ledger's antics ....he's more animated. Phoenix was just a troubled man.....Its like......people would pick scarface over Michael , character her wise.

they didn't follow the real story of the real joker at Joaquin Phoenix so for me, Heath Ledger was way better if i had to choose a new updated version of the joker then the suicide squad joker is what i would go with

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!

You can compare their effort into becoming the Joker but you can *never* and I mean never compare their Jokers.
Ledger was Joker fully developed
Phoenix was Fleck becoming the Joker
It's just not sensible

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

we're comparing a main character with a protagonist. that shows how the protagonist is so good. I mean no hate but Joaquin joker is like depressed and Ledger's Joker is like chatic and does things unplanned that makes him happy

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"

Actually Phoenix who can barely control his emotions and insane is the man who inspired the dude who would become our comic joker.
Ledger is the man who becomes the joker we know smart, deceives, evil, coldhearted, and really silly.

I thought they were both amazing.
Heath ledger played the joker brilliantly! But played him as the anarchist joker! Who is a psychopath. Psychopaths tend to not have much emotions and we seen that in heath ledgers joker!
Phoenix joker was also brilliant but he was playing it as if he was a victim and we got to see his incredible acting emotionally! It’s both perfect for the roles they were given to be fair to them!
