Video: Even if you didn't see Suicide Squad and somehow escaped the reviews of it and, like, also didn't hear the horror stories about Jared Leto's Joker, you'd already know that it would never have topped Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight anyway. Not only is Ledger's Joker an iconic performance, his character was also the most perfect antagonist there's ever been for Batman (or maybe, for any superhero).
