Suicide Squad Passes $700 Million Worldwide
Despite lackluster reviews, a questionable villain and not enough of the Jared Leto Joker, Suicide Squad is still doing well at the box office and has now passed the $700 million mark.
Director David Ayer took to Twitter to thank everybody for Suicide Squad's success.

Suicide Squad is also close to passing Iron Man 2, Iron Man and even Batman vs. Superman, and is around $26 million behind Guardians of the Galaxy.
Suicide Squad box office:
"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date 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?
