In the entire comic book universe, the joker is well known and relatable. I feel when someone new portrays the joker, that actor adds new things that the previous person playing the joker never did. It’s all about the purity and personality that is important to maintain when an actor performs as the joker.
My personal favorite out of all of the jokers is, Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson. Each of these actors brings something new to the table. Jack Nicholson focuses on a simple and polished make up and fancy suits while Heath Ledger’s joker has a sort of make up that is not perfect and looks worn down. Heath Ledger’s joker portrays the not so perfect life and everything bad in the world; the sort of broken side of a person.
