Todd Phillips recent hit movie Joker seems unstoppable in terms of reaching new milestones everyday. Joker had already became one of the highest grosser of the film industry.
IMDb had awarded a rating of 9 to Joker which is even higher than Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight which starred Heath Ledger.
Ever since Joker had released everyone just can’t stop praising the character of Arther Fleck portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix. Not only this, the fans are so esctatic regarding the character of Joker they just can’t stop themselves from comparing Heath Ledger’s portrayal of Joker in The Dark knight with Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.
At the point when Christopher Nolan lined up Batman Begins with 2008’s The Dark Knight, few could have foreseen the frenzy that Heath Ledger would be on screen as the Clown Prince of Crime.
Unfortunately, the on-screen character passed on just before the film’s release and was deprived to see the accomplishment of what an extraordinary feat the movie had achieved compared to other comic book movies.
With Todd Phillips’ Joker, critics and fans were expecting Joaquin Phoenix’s presentation to be keeping pace with, or maybe even outperform Ledger’s. Notwithstanding, as provocative as Joker is as a character investigation of Arthur Fleck’s separate because of society’s shallow ways, Phoenix’s Joker still can’t measure up to Ledger’s character.
Ledger truly helped set his film apart from contemporary superhero movies and achieving a posthumous Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role.
What made him popular was the tumult and political agitation he spoke to. Record’s Mistah J didn’t simply threaten society, he needed “a superior class of crook” for Gotham. His Joker even saw how more lawbreakers could make more vigilantes, individuals who likewise may be beasts and, generally speaking, a piece of the issue.
The manner in which the character progressed from needing the Batman dead to feeling his quality made him complete, truly brought a feeling of terrorizing the Gotham city.
It’s difficult to place Joaquin Phoenix in a similar classification as Ledger on the grounds that the majority of the film depicts Arthur as a compliant performer searching for work, battling impractically, and not knowing who his actual family is.
Arthur realizes Gotham’s general public is corrupted as well, yet his effect is inadvertent; Ledger’s Joker is systematic and ascertaining.
Instead, Ledger’s version is humor combined with bloodshed while Phoenix’s is self-pity combined with panic attacks.
What’s more, that is the reason just Ledger’s Clown Prince of Crime needs to watch the world consume. That is also why his Joker stands tall over Phoenix’s Arthur – he doesn’t discover the flares and respect them like Phoenix’s character – Ledger’s Joker strikes the match and embarks to cause the damage.
