The R-rated film, which portrays the DC Comics villain as sharing the psychological traits of real-life mass shooters, is expected to collect at least $80 million in the United States and Canada by Sunday. If the film reaches that total, it would give Warner Bros. its biggest non-sequel opening in two years. “Joker” has artistic legitimacy, having won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival last month.

With Avengers: Endgame almost upon us, Marvel is pretty much all the world is talking about this April. Will our favourite heroes come back from the dust? Is Ant-Man really going to expand inside Thanos? Will Tony Stark die? Will Captain America?
