That's a tough one for me, they are my three favorite batman villains. Liam Nieeson was fantastic as Ra's, but I do wish he got more screen time in Begins. Ledger's portrayal of Joker was sensational and horrific at the same time. Was very impressed with the job he did, especially because I hated the idea of him playing Joker when he was originally cast. I liked Nolan's more realistic vision of Bane more so than the over the top one you see in like Arkham City. Tom Hardy was wonderful as Bane, He was menacing and vicious. The fight scenes he had in Rises were by far the best of the Trilogy. If I'm going with sheer individual performance, I've got to go with Heath Ledger as the Joker. Favorite villain interpretation, Ra's loses out to Bane simply because he did not have a great amount of screen time.

I personally liked Two Face the best.

The Agent of Chaos and Two-Face.

My favorite was Two-Face, simply because Aaron made Harvey so dark at the end after being so positive and upbeat in the movie. Second is a three way tie between Bane, Joker and Ra's. All such great acting.

They were all fantastic, but Heath Ledger's Joker stands out the most.

I know I'm in the minority, but I think that the Joker was a little overhyped. My preference of the villains in order goes:

1. Bane 2. Two-Face 3. Joker 4. Ra's 5. Scarecrow 6.Talia Al Ghul

I loved the top 5 though, so the ranking is in no way a reflection of not liking them. Talia is the only one I wasn't crazy about.

Bane, Hardy's performance was amazing. Joker in a really close second.

Bane, for me. I think Ledger's Joker is overrated. Good, but overrated.

#19 Posted by KenTheProfile (402 posts) - - Show Bio

@buttersdaman000: Joker and Two Face not even a real contest. ra's was in the film so little it hard to even say he was the bad guy falcone was more so.

Dont consider Two-Face to be a villain in this series,same goes for Catwoman.

Performance wise Ledger is still at the top.

#23 Posted by Gambit1024 (9843 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker. Bane was fantastic, but Joker was the best, in my opinion.

#24 Posted by jonijavier (12 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker. Joker. Joker.

#25 Edited by Uncanny_Doom (488 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker, Ra's, Two-Face, then Bane. Bane was the low point of TDKR to be honest.

#26 Posted by gats_botl (78 posts) - - Show Bio

joker is the best villain ever

#27 Posted by buttersdaman000 (11296 posts) - - Show Bio
Personally, I think Bane was one of the high points of TDKR.His voice, brutality, and intelligence just made for a imposing villain in a way the Joker could never be. I may change my views on this later, but he is my favorite villain of the trilogy. 
- Bane 
- Ra's 
- Joker 
- Talia 
- Two-Face 
- Scarecrow 
#28 Posted by nichart (2 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Joker was my favorite, followed very closely by Bane. I thought Scarecrow was awesome, just wish he had had more screen time.

#29 Posted by Jaymundo (177 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker, Bane, then Two Face in my opinion.

#30 Posted by pulseangel666 (313 posts) - - Show Bio

Bane, but I'm also a sucker for Tom Hardy's acting work. Ledgers Joker is a close second. With Liam's Ra's a third place,

#31 Posted by The Stegman (27266 posts) - - Show Bio

1. Joker 
2. Bane 
3. Scarecrow 
4. Ra's Al Ghul

Seconded, also Aaron Eckhart was highly underrated as Harvey Dent. I thought he was great.

^^^ win

1. Bane- Hardy did such a great job in portraying Bane. He was intelligent, calculating, ruthless, brutal, and had the best fight scenes in the trilogy.

2. Two Face: Eckhart is severely underrated in that performance

3. Joker- Ledger is a little overrated in his performance. Is it great? Absolutely. It's not overwhelmingly great the more I see the movie though. I think Ledger's death had a lot to do with people's acclaim for him.

#38 Posted by Chronus (1115 posts) - - Show Bio

Bane. He was the only good character of the three. Ra's the worst.

Joker was obviously the best. Bane was pretty cool too.

#46 Posted by batmanary (790 posts) - - Show Bio

Villain wise, Ra's. Performance-wise, Bane. Tom Hardy did a phenomenal job. Heath Ledger was good, I'm not saying he wasn't, but it was a tad overrated.

#47 Posted by Selinaky (681 posts) - - Show Bio

Ra's is my favourite villain of the three, but in the films I'd choose Joker, Bane then Ra's. Love Tom Hardy. Scarecrow was awesome too.

#48 Posted by JamesKM716 (1995 posts) - - Show Bio

When it comes to acting Heath Ledger's Joker wins no doubt. If it comes to my personal favorite, Bane Wins. Followed by Joker, then Two-Face

#49 Posted by Xanni15 (6758 posts) - - Show Bio

Ra's, he was easily the smartest of the bunch and had reasons which he could defend for why he wanted to do things. Bane seemed more of a pawn, and Joker should have been taken out much easier but Bruce is restrained when it comes to him.

Bane was my favourite, but Joker was the best. Makes sense right? ;p
