Who Is the Best Big-Screen Joker?
For every big-screen incarnation of Batman, there must also be a Joker. Actually, Joker now has the edge thanks to his new, Batman-less origin story starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime. Already fans are declaring Phoenix’s Joker to be one of the all-time best, and awards buzz is building.But how does Phoenix’s take on Joker compare to classic versions like Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger? Vote in the poll and let us know your favorite big-screen incarnation of Joker:IGN’s Jim Vejvoda gave Joker a rare perfect 10 score, saying, “Featuring a riveting, fully realized, and Oscar-worthy performance by Joaquin Phoenix, Joker would work just as well as an engrossing character study without any of its DC Comics trappings; that it just so happens to be a brilliant Batman-universe movie is icing on the Batfan cake.”

Not that Phoenix’s critically lauded performance came easy. Phoenix revealed how his weight loss affected his psychology, and discussed the difficulty in perfecting Arthur Fleck’s “painful” laugh.The only person who doesn’t seem to be thrilled with the new movie is previous cinematic Joker Jared Leto. Leto was reportedly “alienated and upset” when Warner Bros. greenlit the movie. Maybe a strong showing in the poll will put a smile on Leto’s face?
