Previously, "Deadpool" achieved the achievement of being the highest grossing adult film with 783 million raised in 2016.
In fact, the protagonist of "Deadpool", Ryan Reynolds, congratulated Twitter for the tape that has surpassed its record with a photo of the "Joker" poster in which Joaquin Phoenix appears as the villain of the DC comic book franchise.
The news of the achievement of "Joker" comes after a great controversy for his screening in movie theaters due to his explicit violence, for which he was accused by certain groups of being a danger for promoting violence.
Some people recalled the mass shooting of 2012 in the town of Aurora (Colorado), in which 12 people died during a screening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises", and expressed concern about the upcoming release of "Joker" .
The attacker, who was then 24 years old, was arrested on the outskirts of the place by the Police, before which he was identified as the "Joker" ("Joker"), one of Batman's enemies in the fiction story and protagonist of The new tape.
"Make no mistake: Neither the fictional character Joker nor the film supports real-world violence of any kind. It is not the intention of the film, the filmmakers or the studio to make this character a hero," the company said in a statement sent to the media of the entertainment industry.
For his part, Phoenix himself said in an interview with Efe that "accusing a film of glorifying violence is absurd."
