Definitely a worthwhile use of arguably our best working actor.

Playing The Joker has basically become the closest thing American culture has to playing Hamlet (and as many actors have won an Oscar for one as for the other).

I mean so many serious actors (Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto, and now Joaquin Phoenix) have interpreted the role that it’s starting to seem like some kind of ultimate role for a certain kind of actor. I’m not being entirely earnest, I’m riffing on Mark Ruffalo joking about following Edward Norton and Eric Bana in playing The Hulk: “... the way I see it is that Ed has bequeathed this part to me. I look at it as my generation's Hamlet.”

Everything else in that costume looks heavily padded, so why not?
