This is why Ledger couldn't be the Joker to me:
The Joker commits crimes with comedic weapons (such as razor-sharp playing cards, acid-spewing flowers, cyanide pies, exploding cigars filled with
nitroglycerin, harpoon guns that utilize razor-sharp BANG!-flags, and lethally electric joy buzzers) and Joker venom, sometimes referred to as "Joker
Juice", a deadly poison that infects his victims with a ghoulish rictus grin as they die while laughing uncontrollably. All of his equipment and
comedic weaponry are ingeniously designed to look at first harmless, (so as to not raise suspicion) and then kill unwarned enemies. They are so
ingenious to the point where they can even outsmart Batman.
The Joker's origin mostly is based on chemicals turning his face white, hair green, and lips red. He Is infact a master criminal whose
characterization has varied from a violent sociopath who kills people and commits crimes for his own amusement, to a goofy trickster-thief and
fiendishly intelligent lunatic with a warped, sadistic sense of humor.
Now...reading the comics....watching the old shows and cartoons...playing the games....owning the oldschool toys....
I have to say that Ledger was not to blame! It was bad casting! Ledger was a GREAT person to act "psychopathic" But he WAS NOT Joker!
Jack N- made a MUCH CLOSER Joker, but not all there! he was funny and sadistic, but not all insane like Ledger!
All in all, Ledger was by far THE WORST JOKER I'VE SEEN!
I went to the movies wanting the Joker- I HONEST TO GOD- Walked out the theater 30 minutes later! I was really really disapointed with the director, i
do not blame Ledger.
Though if this wasn't based of the Batman we all know and love in the comics and shows- then whatever. But growing up to Joker and seeing this was
just A KICK IN THE NUTS!
=-for those who whine he's the best Joker (Ledger), i could care less, this is the truth so get it through your heads, YOU DON'T KNOW THE TRUE
