5 Greatest Comic Book Villains On The Big Screen
#1 The Joker
The Joker is a mysterious terrorist with seemingly random, inexplicable motivations. He's Batman's greater villain because he has all of his talents for chaos but none of his sense of justice.
Heath Ledger was actually awarded a posthumous Oscar for his performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight, and the performance has gotten more unsettling over the years. We may know next to nothing about who the Joker is, but Ledger embodies him with so many unexplainable quirks, tics and habits that we're able to wonder who he is and what he really wants without getting any real answers. The Joker is the embodiment of a true psycho, and his genius plans mixed with chaotic unpredictability make him the most iconic hero's most iconic antithesis.
