  1. I'm surprised that Kevin Smith hasn't watched Joker yet. He's a super fan of comic books, but hasn't seen Phoenix's infamous performance. I am sure that he would have watched it already if this was an overrated MCU film.

  2. The joker: should be number 3 joaquin phoenix
    The joker: should be 2
    Jack nicholson
    Andddd drum roll please!! For the number one spot the Joker:………..
    Heath Ledger
    Now let's put a smileeeee on that face!

  3. There is no world in which Jared Leto's isn't the worst, voice only or not. If he bothered watching "Joker", Phoenix's performance should be 2nd to last as it was heavily derivative of Ledger's performance and the screenplay was actually quite bland for a supposed "character study". He also really underrates Monaghan (whom he hasn't really seen either. Monaghan was a little derivative of other performances like NIcholson's, but he created something very interesting and unique nonetheless. 3rd tier: Galifianakis/Romero 2nd tier: Nicholson/Monaghan 1st tier: Ledger/Hamill. And you can arrange within each tier any way you'd like. It all depends on what metrics you use for defining best.

  4. Ign does know how to review anything, this is a perfect example of how uninformed they are when it comes to the thigs they review. They should just stop.

  5. I agree with heath ledger as number 1 but I think Cameron Monaghan should've been ranked higher. And Jared Letos joker wasnt anyomes cup of tea haha I'm not a fan at all. Not really a fan of the suicide squad movie at all. It was all hype no substance imo. Havent seen Joaquin Phoenixs Joker other than the trailor. I have high hopes but he has some huge shoes to fill. Nicholson is the classic Joker to me. U cld argue Romero but I wasnt a huge fan of his portrayal. None come close to ledgers performance tho.

  6. I didn't even watch the video, I disliked because you can't compare them, they are very different.

    Edit: YOU HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN THEM! Also Leto>Gotham

  7. First off, I'd have to say it's a tie for first with ledger and Phoenix 2nd, I'd say would be Gotham's multiple versions played by a single actor Cameron Monahan shows his acting skills with those roles. After that, Nicholson, then hammill, and so on, Leto being dead last.

  8. I’d say this is about the best joker ranking I’ve seen yet if you put Joaquin and Ledger ties at first. They both had the best performances but they where playing two different roles and they where both at there peak in there own role

  9. SORRY KEVIN SMITH, BUT YOURE NOT EVEN QUALIFIED TO EVEN RANK JOKERS IF YOU HAVENT EVEN SEEN THEIR PERFORMANCES IN FULL, ONCE HE SAID “OK SO I HAVENT SEEN JOKER”
    I IMMEDIATELY STOPPED THE VIDEO, WASTE.

  10. 1. Heath Ledger – Joker in his prime.

    2. Joaquin Phoenix – A version of Joker that I love and honestly I would call it a tie but that wouldn't be fair.

    3. Literally anyone but Jared Leto

  11. For me.
    1st: Heath and Joaquin ( Just can't pick. Both amazing )
    2nd: Jack Nicholson.
    3nd: Cameron Monaghan ( Jeremiah )
    4th: Jared Leto.
    5th: Cameron Monaghan ( Jerome )
    6th: Cesar Romero.
    7th: Cameron Monaghan ( Mr j or Jack…Joseph… Whatever ).

  12. You should have watched Cameron Monaghan and Joaquin phoenix’s full performances before doing this ranking of the jokers, it’s not really a true ranking if you haven’t seen two of the actors full performances, Joaquin’s Phoenix’s performance was awesome and through the hole series of Gotham Cameron Monaghan plays 3 different versions of the joker and he plays all 3 Magnificently
