Suicide Squad Passes Iron Man 2
Suicide Squad continues to do well at the box office and continues to beat out Marvel.
As of today, Suicide Squad has passed Marvel's Iron Man 2 with a $313.7 million gross at the domestic box office. The number also sees Suicide Squad pass Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, Thor, Ant-Man, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Incredible Hulk.
Suicide Squad is just shy of passing Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy as well.
Suicide Squad has a total worldwide gross of $718,882,332, and a Margot Robbie Harley Quinn spinoff is in the works, with Suicide Squad 2 rumored in development with David Ayer writing the script and back to direct.
While not a perfect movie by any means (not enough Joker, questionable villain and ending), Suicide Squad took a different and fresh approach by using villains as the main characters.
Top Comic Book Adaptations (U.S.):
"Suicide Squad" is directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
