4. The Joker
Undoubtedly Batman’s greatest rival, Joker is one of the greatest movie villains of all time. While Jack Nicholson played Joker as well as anyone could, Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight is probably the finest we will ever see this super villain portrayed on screen. The dichotomy between the Batman and Joker is unparalleled and Ledger and Bale took it to another level. While a lot of criminals are masterminds, the reason why Joker is the best villain is summed up by this simple dialog from Alfred, “Some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”
