Well, the choices and names which people have submitted above are hilarious and impressive but on a serious note, if we really think about the greatest villain ever then no wonder it is going to take a lot of research and a good memory because there has been a lot of interesting names in the category. But, Heath Ledger’s Joker was loved by every person on the planet and even Academy Awards back in 2009 honored his work with an Oscar as the Best Supporting Actor.
The man won the Oscar against a very good line-up of villains that year like Josh Brolin for Milk, Michael Shannon for Revolutionary Road, Robert Downey Jr. for Tropic Thunder, and Philip Seymour Hoffman for Doubt. So, against all these tremendous performances it was Heath Ledger who won the Oscar and the only reason behind it was the perfection in his portrayal of Joker.
There have been a lot of stars in the past who have portrayed the same character and once again, we are going to see Joaquin Phoenix portraying the Joker in the upcoming DC movie Joker which also features Robert De Niro, Shea Whigham, Zazie Beetz, and many more. The movie will release on October 4 this year.
