Here are the results from the last poll Who Played the Better Joker?
78% – Heath Ledger
22% – Jack Nicholson.
I’ll have to side with the majority on this one. It’s not that Jack Nicholson did a poor job as the joker, it’s just that Ledger was beyond amazing.
I think it has something to do with the mood of the films as well. Batman was always good and entertaining but it was a little hokey. And that’s the type of character Nicholson played.
However, the more recent versions on Batman have been dark, real, and disturbing. Ledger fueled these feelings. Check out our new poll!
