Most of your argument is about ledger’s cartoony like character and villain aspects but obviously Phoenix was playing the role before he became a villain. That movie was a master piece

Phoenix's suit isn't purple. It's reddish orange or rust colored.

Although I enjoyed the video, I don't think the comparison was fair. Phoenix played a character named Arthur for 95% of his movie, while Ledger was Joker from beginning to end.

How did DC go from ledger's Joker to leto's joker? It's absolutely insane to think how badly David ayer ruined the character Glad they did the joker 2019 Will improve the character's image

For me Joaquin and Heath can't be compared. They are two completely different persons ,in two completely different movies. They two did a great job. I love them both

Heath is the best at playing Joker when it comes to personality, Joaquin is the best at playing Joker when it comes to how he really is as a gangster.

The comparison is more between Philips and Nolan. The actors do not decide the behavior

Phoenix Joker wasn't just a great addition to DC but also a superb piece of cinema overall. Haven't watched anything of this quality and genre since "Clockwork Orange" and "Natural Born Killers"... In some sense it's even better because it doesn't even have to make murder and violence a central theme to make you really feel for an evil psychopath.

Not including Jared is insulting all interpretations of the character are unique and quite honestly this video is pointless none of them are comparable and hit what they were going for right on the head

Let me just say this go into this movie prepared to feel uncomfortable sympathetic mad confused cuz some deaths are like your seeing a real killer killing there so fast and loud with some and other are slow and painful and sometimes when you look into his eyes you feel the tension pls read this and then go

They can’t be compared. JP Joker is a criminal in development and HL Joker has already embraced his criminal mastermind life. We never saw HL Joker before he became the Joker but rest assured that his voice was not what we see on screen before he became the Joker. Finally the categories chosen to pick up a winner are simply not enough and certainly unable to draw any conclusions. This is one of the weakest videos I ve seen on this channel.

These two movies are completely different and should not be compared. That being said, "Joker" is 10 times better than batman the dark night. Phoenix>Ledger

I think Warner Bros should do a Batman movie with Phoenix as joker. That would be a much better comparison.
