People’s Joker Pulled from Toronto Film Festival After One Screening

After having a single screening at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, the comedy film The People’s Joker was pulled from the event’s programming. The movie by director Vera Drew (Who Is America) told a different origin story for the world-famous Batman villain, much like Warner Bros. did with 2019’s Joker. In this universe, however, the title character has a queer identity. In its synopsis, the movie made it clear that it was “completely” unlicensed by DC Comics and Warner Bros., and if the movie wasn’t on either company’s radar so far, after the premiere event, it certainly is.

Details of why the movie was pulled are yet to be made official by any of the parties, but it’s pretty safe to say that it has to do with using the name and appearance of a major character that’s trademarked. The People’s Joker’s page on the TIFF website now reads that “the filmmaker has withdrawn this film due to rights issues. We apologize for any inconvenience. Current ticket holders will receive an email from TIFF Customer Relations with information on their purchase.”
