The Joker is a compelling bad guy that all ages can understand. He’s the supervillain with an evil sense of humor, a devil-may-care attitude, and a blood-curdling laugh. Kids have active imaginations, love to play pretend, and quickly pick up on the roles that characters play in an imaginary world. The Joker is a classic, almost timeless villain that will instantly spark kids’ imaginations. They’ll have a great time coming up with their own stories about The Joker as they color him in.
Whether you’re a kid with an active imagination or an adult who loves comic books, The Joker Coloring pages are a great way to pass the time—there are plenty of versions of The Joker, some of which are more serious and appeal to adults more than kids. If you’re a Batman superfan, or if you’re fascinated by the Joker’s brand of twisted humor and villainy, you’ll have a fun, relaxing time coloring in your favorite likeness of The Joker.
From the first time The Joker was imagined by a cartoonist in 1940 all the way to his film portrayal in 2019, he’s maintained his classic, crazed look with a purple suit, white face makeup, red lips, and green hair. When you’re coloring him in, you can stick to the original color scheme, or follow your muse and go in another direction. Maybe he’s decided to switch to pink hair and blue makeup. Or maybe the Joker was feeling particularly crazy one day and decided to wear a suit with every color in your crayon box on it!
Like Batman, the Joker doesn’t have any superhuman powers, instead of using his devilish cunning and evil gadgets to put Batman in tough situations, or sometimes just to toy with him. His accessories and devices make for fun things to color in—his classic gun that fires a flag that says “bang” on it instead of a bullet is a goofy pop-culture staple, and the flower pinned to his lapel that fires big clouds of toxic gas is a zany, fun idea.
The Joker comes in many different forms: there’s the mischievous, impish cartoon version from the ’90s, the chilling and more serious version of Heath Ledger’s Joker from the 2008 movie, the more recent and equally iconic Joker from the 2019 movie played by Joaquin Phoenix, and countless other versions imagined by fans. The Joker keeps getting reimagined by fans, cartoonists, and filmmakers, and you too can imagine The Joker however you want with these Joker Coloring Pages.
The Joker is a complex, dark character, and some portrayals of The Joker involve extreme violence, mental illness, or other themes that young kids might not be ready to engage with. If your kid loves coloring in pictures of The Joker, they might start to get interested in movies that feature the Joker—and not all of them are age-appropriate. Coloring in any version of The Joker is a great, wholesome activity, but always make sure that your child is developmentally ready before you let them see the latest Joker movie or go watch The Dark Night. As long as you make sure that your child is consuming age-appropriate content, you can let the character of The Joker spark their imagination.
