      I dont think people realize joaqins "joker" isnt the joker yet hes going into that role and he isnt supposed to be judged as the joker, its obvious that heath ledger is the best joker of all time and probs cant be topped, joaqins performance was not meant to be of the joker but more of what drives someone to be like heath ledger

          To be fair we haven’t seen Phoenix actually play the joker yet but for future films I hope he’s the only that play joker for now long

            Great analysis

            In fact they can be compared cause they’re take on the same role proves so - their performance is outstanding and the real thing is that each actors perform joker in difference perspectives; one the villain, the other more personal.

            Great analysis 👍🏽 Mojo!

                      Your fucking kidding me right heath is the best joker of all time he was a co star in the dark night and fuckin murdered it and your debating if Joaquin is a better joker when the whole movie is baste on him

                      • Abdelmelik Farooq Alwahid

                        Joaquin Phoenix made me empathize with the Joker. Great movie but he is still a villain not an anti-hero.

                              One of them was in a superhero movie (Ledger) and THAT Joker was "born" a long time ago. Plus, Ledger's Joker was in supporting role.
                              Phoenix was in a leading role and he had to introduce the process of becoming Joker.
                              Huge differences, but one thing in common:
                              They BOTH were FUCKING AMAZING!!!!
                              Phoenix must win!!!

                                Heath embodies the super villain in spades. He proves that he can terrorize millions of people and his brutal charisma made me totally believe that he has hundreds of disciples. Meanwhile, Joaquin’s showdown on the late show is shocking but he never does anything remotely world shattering. He doesn’t even transform into the Joker till the last 30 minutes of the film. Heath comes out swinging in the first few scenes and never lets up.

                                    joaquin phoenix didn’t do it for me, he didn’t feel like the chaotic genius the joker is, he seemed more like a mentally ill man that acted off a whim and emotion. This joker didn’t seem like he had the potential to do what the joker is capable of. I don’t think joaquin phoenix is the best joker, not even close to ledgers. Even when he became the joker at the end, he didn’t feel like the joker, he felt like a mentally ill man taking on the role as the joker. Do you think joaquin phoenix’s joker could have the dynamic with Batman like joker is supposed to

                                              But Joaquin gave a more realistic show

                                                Joaquin phoenix and heath ledger combined would be the perfect joker

                                                I want to see more Joaquin phoenix as the joker in some capacity a Joker sequel or a one off batman against joker.

                                                    Heath Ledger redefined Joker and showed us what the character could be. Joaquin Phoenix perfected it. I like to see it that way.

                                                          The best thing about Joaquin Phoenix is that he made it believable that Arthur and Joker are the same person .. Arthur was shy, timid, kind to his mom, sensitive.. yet from minute one we felt the unseen resemblance between him and the joker thanks to Joaquin’s performance .. he didn’t make it seem odd for us given how much we are used to the joker character, that’s not easy at all!!!!

                                                                  • hi lol

If Joaquin decides to continue to play the joker you don’t know where he will take the character. Both did an amazing job in respect to how the stories started.

                                                                                      Phoenix nailed it, but it's hard to compare them because they are both so good and so flawless. An origin compared to full blown is difficult but since ledger is no longer here to carry the role I feel Phoenix is the Joker. Such great actors taking on a very difficult role. Phoenix can take this Joker to new levels and will continue to do an amazing job perfecting an already untouchable take on a legendary role.

                                                                                        • sailor broom

                                                                                          • Jesus Reyes
