    I liked Leto as the Joker, but more of what I liked didnt end up in the movie. Suicide Squad was an editing fuck up. That story had so much potential and it just got shredded. I am not going to blame the actor for that.

    Funny story about that.

    I was in high school when that movie came out. I was taking "Film Studies".

    One of the things we did on mondays was briefly discuss new movies.

    After Daredevil came out we talked about it. It was destroyed by the students.

    But my teacher was not familiar with the teacher, so he naturally asked

    Teacher: Well, what's his superpower?

    Student: He's blind.

    Teacher: Well, most people wouldn't consider that a super power...

    I always think of that whenever the movie is brought up.

    Spiderman has had so many changes in actor and reboots that they just overdid it. And Tobey Maguire sucks donkey balls.

    I liked the Wolverine movies.

    I liked all the Iron Man movies, but don't remember Thor Dark World. Not ever sure I've seen it.

    I really liked the movie itself.

    But it wasn't the punisher in a lot of ways.

    Iron Man 2 and 3 are some of the weakest marvel universe stuff. So is Dark World.

    he was good as Peter Parker though.

    I thought the Wolverine movies were pretty meh at best.

    haven't seen Logan yet, but it got mixed reviews as well.

    93% on Rotten Tomatoes, among the highest for any superhero movie ever, is not mixed reviews. Logan was critically acclaimed.

    Eh, he's more of a clown than Ledger's joker, but much less of a clown than either Romero or Nicholson. Not to mention that Leto's joker was much closer to the comic book joker than LeLeto's also much more of the classic comic book joker than Ledger as well.

    As @MilkSpiller22 is alluding to, I think you see Leto's joker as more clown like b/c he was just a background piece, a plot tool, in Suicide Squad. We didn't get to see him in any action--no real shooting, killing or brutality. The chance to see that is why I think a movie featuring Leto's joker would be a great idea.

    I didn't like Nicholson's joker either even before The Dark Knight was made. The only Batman related story I've read was The Joker by Brian Azzarello which is more of a noirish story of his release from Arkham Asylum. It's supposed to be kind of a take on Ledger's batman but I think it's more or less a grittier version of the Joker from the cartoon series than any real life portrayal of him on film. I liked that version of Joker a lot more than Leto's as well.

    I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. I think he is fundamentally more of a gangster than an eccentric/zany hooligan.

    No one can touch Hamil’s joker.

    Clearly #1.

    Voice acting does not hold a candle to live action acting. There are subtleties that Ledger hit that are simply impossible for Hamil to have achieved with just his voice.

    Not to take anything away from Hamil. His Joker is great. It is just B&W when compared to Ledger’s color.

    I'm not a Batman or Joker fan but I preferred Leto's joker.

    Ben Affleck was pretty good both as Batman and as Bruce Wayne. He had probably the two best scenes in BvS, the one when he's driving through Metropolis while Superman is fighting Zod, and the Warehouse fight. Both are outstanding.

    Too bad most of the rest of the movie was an incoherent mess.
