An official release date has been set for the controversial movie Joker in the US.

The People's Joker, a controversial movie that was pulled from a film festival, now has a release date in the US.

The movie makes fun of a lot of Batman figures and follows a transgender version of Bruce Wayne's most famous enemy, the Joker.

The first time it was shown was at the Toronto International Film Festival. However, director and star Vera Drew had to cancel more showings because of copyright problems with the source material.

Now, the movie publisher Altered Innocence has bought the movie and said that The People's Joker will come out on April 5.

Warner Bros. Discovery, which is owned by DC Comics, has the rights to the Batman world and all of its characters.

Warner Bros. has never said anything about The People's Joker in public, but there is a disclaimer before the movie that says, 

"This film is a parody and is at this time completely unauthorized by DC Comics, Warner Brothers or anyone claiming ownership of the trademarks therein (e.g. "Joker," "Batman," etc.)."

Drew's Joker "grapples with her gender identity while unsuccessfully trying to join the ranks of Gotham City's sole comedy program in a world where comedy has been outlawed" (via Variety). The movie is a "absurdist semi-autobiographical dark comedy."
