Joker Vs. Joker (Vs. Joker Vs. Joker): There Are Four Sides to This Story
With “Suicide Squad” around the corner and Jared Leto’s Joker making quite the stir (have you seen those teeth?), we thought it was about time to find out once and for all: Who is of the best Joker of all time? So, we went straight to the source–uh, sources–to find out, gathering a panel of four Jokers and grilling them on the hot button issues, moderated by the only man who can keep them under control (kind of): Batman.
Drawing together Jokers from across time and space, we were able to wrangle Jack Nicholson's Jokers, Heath Ledger’s Joker, Mark Hamill’s Joker and, of course, Jared Leto’s tattoo-laden Joker. Before the greatest Joker of all time is determined, Batman will need to collect the evidence (he is the world’s greatest detective, after all), like which Joker is the best at preparing his diabolical schemes, and which one just most looks the part.
Considering this is a room full of the sinister clowns, the proceedings don’t exactly go as planned. But we do get a glimpse into the future, with a prognostication of Joker casting yet-to-come!
Make your own decision about Leto’s Joker on August 5, 2016 when “Suicide Squad” debuts in theaters.
As part of Comic-Con International: San Diego, Marvel announced that the new season of their ‘Avengers’ animated cartoon will be titled 'Avengers: Secret Wars,’ with an all-new cast consisting of The Vision, Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel, Black Panther, Wasp, Ant-Man and the Jane Foster version of Thor. They also broke news that a series of Rocket Raccoon and Groot-led series of animated shorts, inspired by the work of Eisner Award-winning comic book writer/artist Skottie Young, are on the way.
