11 years since Heath Ledger departed to Joker's heaven or hell and here we are still making stupid comparisons between two different types of Jokers. Nevertheless, Ledger made sure to raise the bar to the stratosphere so no one could ever upstage him ... you heard me Jared Letto boy. LOOK AT ME!!! still reverberates inside my head after one decade plus.

phoenix is obviously the better joker. i’m sorry but why does everyone always say ledgers better. don’t get me wrong i love ledger. but just because the role killed him doesn’t mean he’s the best

This is really an incomparable study of one character portrayal. No one and I mean no one can or ever will top Heath's portrayal of the Joker we are familiar with. On the other hand no one can or ever will beat Joaquin's portrayal of of the madness and complete disintegration into the dark tunnel of mental illness. So different yet somehow the same. Both are pure genius in their portrayal. I learned to read with Marvel and DC in the early sixties and absolutely love Batman and his his most powerful Nemesis to have ever existed. I have studied and read a ton of perceptions and studies of each of them. Think about this and let me know what you think. Heath is DEFIANTLY the genuine Joker. Joaquin's portrayal is so very mysterious on so many levels. This is one concept I have...he's not really Joker. He is a severally mentally ill character who's muse is Joker. Nothing in his world is real simply illusion. He is way age inappropriate to fit categorically into the proper place and intent. I truly believe his role is that he loves Joker and has become him in his dive into being "someone" as he is personally pained by being no one and very alone. He needs to be someone powerful and unforgettable such as his personal hero. After all he is in the Asylum and all his people's around him are illusion's. Not at all saying I'm right but I find it to be a very incredible portrayal as such. So tell me...what do you think about my concept!? Either way they both are true genius and irreplaceable in their portrayals.

Of course heath ledgers joker won because he’s dead and they like to pander. Joaquin played the better joker hands down.

They both did a great acting, there's no doubt about it. But what I love about Phoenix is how he had to show a transformation from an innocent sad person to someone like Joker. In the theater, all the audiences experienced sadness, laughs, anger, hate, ... all because of his great acting.

I remember when I first saw the Joker from The dark knight at cinema... I didn't see Heath Ledger... I just saw the Joker playing the Joker... So, yeah.. Heath's Joker is irreplaceable. His laugh, his costume, his figure.. In dark knight, Joker was a rational psychopathic... And I loved how we didn't know about his past... This film ruined everything now... :/

However -
in my opinion, the depth of the character Phoenix created wins, even if Ledger played adequately to the narrative and did it perfectly. Character study by Phoenix was more demanding. So in my opinion - wins.

Ledger reminded me too much of Two face from Batman and Robin or Batman Forever. They are both shit so hard to remember.

After Heaths "Joker" i never thought someone could be on the same level but than came Joaquin Phoenix !! He is the only one who can be as good as Heath !! Such a good method Actor
Damn son where'd you find this.
Only thing i didn't agree with is appearence since i like Joaquin's joker appearence more.

Heath ledger without a doubt. His walk in joker, his tongue movement, his “psychotic behavior” all of those factors. I liked JP’s joker but he was missing that “crazy psychotic” aspect of joker.

Just gonna say the joker 2019 movie is a brilliant movie. If you’re into that kind of villain stuff I highly recommend watching it. I loved it!

I really liked extremely intelligent yet sociopath Dark Knight version personally, yet I've to admit that Joker movie is way more deep and interesting. It's useless to compare them as they are similar only with general design and name, the rest is different. Same generally applies to the old Burton Batman movie.

You cannot compare them with lower that sh!t joker version from Suicide Squad either, just different league.

Phoenix played Arthur perfectly , he only played Joker for 5 minutes which is not fair to compare to someone who played joker for 2 straight hours

The ultimate joker in my eyes is the appearance and style of Ledger, the voice of Hamill and the story of Phoenix (except for the scars story Ledger brings)
The worst. Leto

Ledger is cartoonish joker approach(the allure is that the actor was actually suicidal), Phoenix approach is conceptually actual human becoming a bad person joker 😈

Ledger wins 2 for 2! First up again Jack Nicholson, now Phoenix. All astounding actors, but Heath's portrayal of the Joker stuck with me because he had me shaking in my seat as a kid when the movie came out. Ledger's Joker had me thinking that if it came down to it, people I would consider friends, would turn on me to save their own skin.

But Ledger and Phoenix both worked on different storylines and they both nailed it

I can relate to Joaquins joker better. Without the psychological woes. Joaquins Joker was innocent and because the movie was so intense I believe the writer had to give us something to root for by giving him a legitimate reason for allowing his crazy physiological mind to take over.
NUTCool - 22 hours ago
Imo Phoenix and Ledger are the same Joker for me, one is at his prime and one as an origin younger version.

Heath ledger was being the joker all the way.. There was no alternate emotions to him.. He is the JOKER...
Phoenix played more of a guy behind the mask character seeking the limelight..
Never compare..
I loved the chaotic joker more...

Heath Ledger was my favorite joker. This joker movie just became probably my favorite movie ever. I don't think anyone will ever be a better Joker than Joaquin Phoenix. I wish I have enough money to go watch that movie everyday.
