    @jptheredskull I try and keep the Tim Burton batman universe seperate from the others. As i do with Nolan's version. Both jokers were great and to this day i hate trying to decide which is better. I love both.

    @skywise Yeah. The best film in that series was the first one with Jack Nicholson as the Joker. Not only did that film setup a great cartoon, it featured arguably the best Joker portayal, however, tied with Mark Hamill's voiceover work and Heath Ledger's portrayal.
