QUIZ – The Live Action Joker Movie Quiz

The Joker is one of the most recognisable supervillains in all of fiction – and arguably the most recognisable bad guy in the world of comic books and superheroes.

As a result, he’s long transcended the pages of DC’s comics and appeared in a variety of other media and on countless pieces of merchandise; movies, television shows (both live action and animated), video games, toys, clothes, you name it – if it exists, there’s probably a version of it with the Joker on it.

As far as live action movies are concerned, no less than five actors have portrayed the Clown Prince of Gotham; Cesar Romero (in a 1966 spin-off of the 1960s Batman television show), Jack Nicholson (in 1989’s Batman movie), Heath Ledger (in 2008’s The Dark Knight – the second movie in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy), Jared Leto (in 2016’s DCEU Suicide Squad movie) and, most recently, Joaquin Phoenix (in 2019’s brilliant Joker movie).

The reception, success and popularity of those versions of the characters has, without a doubt, been a mixed bag – two of them have won Oscars, while one of them was almost universally disliked, for example – but one thing they all have in common is that they’re widely known. As a bona fide fan of comic book movies, you know everything there is to know about them all, right?

Well then, let’s put that to the test with this live action Joker movie quiz!
