Mark Hamill The Joker Mask of the Phantasm

2. Mark Hamill

Looking at the entirety of his career, there's certainly a strong case to be made that Mark Hamill may be the best Joker of all time. That said, his one major movie appearance in Mask of the Phantasm (The Killing Joke was a limited release Fathom Event, so it doesn't count) isn't his best work. Hamill delivers a reliably strong performance as the Clown Prince of Crime, but it's pretty clear that Joker was an afterthought for the film's third act, and it shows in the writing. This Joker is damn near perfect for a large chunk of the movie, but certain minor moments (such as Joker showing fear when Batman's actions might get them both killed) just don't feel true to the character. Other than that, this is about as good as Jokers get.
