I think Magneto is the best comic book villain of all time. From there , Joker is the best villain in Batman's rogue gallery. I don't think TDK was the best villain in cinematic history but I'd rank him high on the list.

You guys thinking the Joker is the best villain or tied for must be children. You need to see more movies. Is he awesome yes, but best no way.

He isn't, but he's miles ahead of Nicholson's Jokah.

This came from a Nicholsonfan, neva forget that.

The best movievillain ever for me is...










Gary Oldman in Léon, followed closely by Anthony Hopkins as Lecter.

I'd say Norman Bates is my personal favorite, but I love Ledger's Joker.

Normally, I'd say Darth Vader is the best villain ever, but Heath Ledger's performance I think surpassed any other villain I've ever seen.

Even Hannibal. Hannibal was great, but at the end of the day, he's just Anthony Hopkins turning in a great performance. Same with Vader and JEJ.

Ledger wasn't Ledger in TDK. He transcended himself and truly became someone else. Without question, one of my favorite performances of all time.

In recent years yes he is the best. Personally though he is tied with Vader.

I think if we are talking in recent years he is not even the best. Bill the Butcher or Anton Chigurh should fight for that honor

I would not hesitate to say that TDK's Joker is the best film villain in the superhero genre. But if we were to look at film villains as a whole, there are a few I'd put above him.

Norman Bates
Hannibal Lecter
Jack Torrance
Walter Kurtz
Darth Vader
Anton Chigurh
Hans Landa

Also, it was a very small role, but I have a soft spot for Delbert Grady. Philip Stone is so damn unnerving in that bathroom scene.

Not Chigurgh, because I still think NCFOM is the most overrated movie ever, no matter how good TLJ was in it.

Honestly theres way too many movies to single out the Joker. But he would def be on a top 10 list.

I think dude from the Hitcher was pretty creepy....

Am I wrong in saying that Joaquin Pheonix's Commodus is absurdly underrated? Why do i never see people mentioning him on lists like these? He was a fantastic villain. Better than both Jokers.

And it seems a lot of people need to watch a lot more movies. For example, One Who Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Nurse Ratchet. Best villain of all time.

Agreed... it seems like a lot of peopes "best villain of all time" lists consists of polled movies from that last 20 years.

Nah, not really. She was just one of those "kill the ***** already" characters.

As apposed to movies made 30 years ago?

I've seen Rachet, I've seen Lecter, Vader and Jaws (the later two being from 30+ years ago too, btw), I've even seen Frankstein, Dracula and the Phantom of the Opera...and all things considered, IMO, Ledger's performance is better those all of those mentioned.

Don't go and try to discredit my opinion - and in the process insult my rather extensive knowledge of film - by saying I haven't seen any old movies.
