Two men have reportedly been spotted cosplaying as Joker and Batman amidst the ongoing violence in Ecuador.
Earlier this week, violent attacks by criminal organizations intensified in the Central American nation after the escape of gang leader and drug trafficker José Adolfo Macías Villamar. The president of Ecuador has declared a state of emergency, granting himself special military powers which has caused criminal organizations operating in the country to begin lashing out at authorities.
Amidst all of this, a video has surfaced of two men allegedly in Ecuador and carrying firearms dressed as the iconic comic book characters.

However the video is actually much older than the current conflict which began earlier this week with a version of the video appearing on YouTube in June 2022.
