Fans were given a sneak peak at the movie Joker on Wednesday and some could not help but compare the new Joker to the one played by the late Heath Ledger.

Joaquin Phoenix is the latest actor to play the role. He follows Jared Leto, who filled the role in Suicide Squad (2016), Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight (2007), Jack Nicholson in Batman (1989) and Cesar Romero in the Batman series in the 1960s. 

The much-anticipated movie is expected to hit the big screen on October 4. 

Ledger stole many hearts as the Joker in The Dark Knight. The actor, who died in 2008, won numerous awards for the role, including an Oscar and Golden Globe for best supporting actor. 

Joker fans were delighted to see the trailer for the upcoming film, but some could not help but compare Phoenix and Ledger.
