If you have been keeping up with our Top 10 lists recently, then you will know that we are coming close to finding out who the number one choice is for our Top 10 Superhero Movie Characters list. Yesterday we gave you Hugh Jackman in the role of Wolverine for the X-Men movies, at number three on the list, which means today we have our runner-up for you.
Over the past few years, superhero movies have really started to take over the movie industry, with a number of superhero movies being released on a yearly basis, giving us a lot of superhero characters along the way. This has led to us getting so very impressive performance in some of these movies, with some actors really showing that they truly understand the character they are playing.
The Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy received a huge amount of praise, with most people agreeing that The Dark Knight is one of the best superhero movies of recent years, which is mostly down to the performance of Heath Ledger in the role of The Joker. Heath's performance was so impressive that he landed the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.
While the performance of Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight will always be colored by the untimely death of the actor, he still gave a perfect performance as the character, which will see him go down as one of the greatest on-screen movie villains of all time. We pity the actor who takes on the role of The Joker in the future, as they have impossibly big boots to fill.
Tomorrow we will give you our number one pick. Who do you think it will be?
