Question Best Batman Villians?

Over the past weekend, the internet has been going crazy with news about Jared Leto's new Joker look.


What do you guys think of it? Personally, I don't think it's too bad and after Heath Ledger a big change was needed really.

So, what do you think are the greatest villains Batman has ever faced? Whether it's on TV, film, games or graphic novels, let us know below! Which actors who portrayed the villains did you love the most too?

I think I'd go for the Penguin as my fave villain. It's such a silly idea but that what makes him so awesome! Danny Devito played him perfectly too.

Jared Leto is an outstanding actor and I think he will be a fantastic Joker but the tattoos need to go seriously they look stupid.

Yeah, I'm with Nordy on this, the tattoos spoil it

The Joker has always been my favourite comicbook villain (not just Batman, but in general), ever since watching the old Adam West TV show as a kid in the 80's

I think it has potential and could could be an extremely intense and scary Joker, similar to the one portrayed by Heath Ledger.

My favourite is probably Danny DeVito's The Penguin, but I also really like Selina Kyle/Catwoman as played by Michelle Pfeiffer, rather than Halle Berry in the god-awful film where she was the main character. (in case you can't tell, I rate the Tim Burton films very highly!).

In terms of the best, that would have to be Heath Ledger's Joker, who was a perfect foil and a brilliant portrayal of the character almost as written by Alan Moore.

Great choice Dem but I think we need a few more Gifs just to get your point across

As much as I like Catwoman, Ra's al Ghul is the villian for me

I have always been a massive DiVito fan especially his Penguin man, he and walken do such a great job of playing devious characters, i was truly disturbed by his (penguin man) death at the end of the film. and the little penguins look so sad

But from the comic book i like the character 'Clay Face' he is essentially a living version of the 'incredible melting man' only he doesn;t die... well he has died a few times but new people have teken on his DNA and so they also being to drip and are able to change thier appearance to anythingt hey like to foil the Bat! If you ever get to read Arkham Asylum by Grant Morrison you will get to meet Clay Face.
