I just rewatched Suicide Squad but this time with an analytical mind. That Movie is freaking awesome. I still don't understand why people or should I say critics bash the movie. Everything about the movie was just perfect. The plot, storyline, action scenes, characters (most especially Deadshot, Harley Quinn, El Dibio, Joker, Amanda Waller and Echantress), CGI (okay aside from those of Killer Croc and Enchantress Minions [they look disgusting. I felt like throwing up when I saw them]), Comic (thanks to Harley Quinn), Dark tone were just legit and so on point not forgetting the emotional aspect of it.

A movie about self centered criminals been used by a self centered government that only cares about their image to undertake secret missions for them but circumstances turned the self centered criminals into Selfless Humanitarian. What a plot, Epic.

Suicide Squad was dark, intense, brute, captivating and awesome.
It's dark tone is right for the movie because the movie is about criminals and criminals are dark people (not in complexion oh grin), so the dark theme of the movie is just right for it.

For me the movie is great and it doesn't deserve the criticism and bashing it got but life has a way of compensating as the bashed movie was a financial success grossing over $746 million. At least that's something to compensate for it's critical bomb, a box office hit.

For Me Suicide Squad Is An Awesome Movie.

the debut of black panther $1.3 billion+

MoS $650m+

Justice League $650m+

Black Panther that took 15+ movies to set up?
We are talking about MCU and DCEU start up movies and you are talking about movies riding on the success of others after a long period of time.
Next joke please!!!

Black Panther is overrated and you know it, and that's aside riding on the success of Civil War plus 14 other movies.
Let me ask you, was Black Panther better than Captain America: Winter Soldier?

I honestly feel the only way you can accurately judge these movies is if they were released the same time which obviously it wasnt. I say this because before the marvel movies ( and thus birthing Universes) only batman and superman movies were prominent. Those start up movies laid the groundwork for any comic book movie thus far, apart from that there's 7-10 years between both start up movies, during which time comic book movies became much more popular in cinemas and there's also inflation.
The question I find interesting is, if the MCU or the start up movies were released today do you think they wouldn't out gross the start up DCEU movies?

Warner Bros. are just too greedy. Because of the BO projections of Aquaman, they've started making plans for an Aquaman 2 just like they did wonder woman. What abt the ever slowing Flash film or stiff Man of Steel sequel or The Batman? That was 0ne of my reasons wanting Aquaman to fail. WB won't make decisi0ns creatively but think how to pluck m0ney fr0m that DC tree.

Warner Bros must be 100% certain Aquaman will be a hit.

If not why are they making plans for Aquaman 2.

5 years and counting and no Man of Steel 2. angry

But Wonder Woman and Aquaman will get sequels sad

The Flash movie has to be one of the most unfortunate projects at WB.

The movie had a March 2018 release date.
WB changed the director twice.
Pushed the movie back to start production in 2020....imagine that. angry

They say that Flash movie had to be delayed because Ezra Miller will be shooting Fantastic Beasts 3...one of WB's money spinners.

The Batman has a director and a script and could start production in late 2019 but without Ben Affleck. sad

It is obvious that Man Of Steel 2 may never happen.
Heck, WB wants to bring in a fresh Kryptonian in Supergirl.

I hope The Batman matches TDK in commercial success.
So that WB will take the character seriously and not dump him like they did Superman.

Apparently the only language Warner Bros understands is MONEY.

As they are making money they should also make great movies and build a successful shared universe.

What is DCEU without Batman and Superman.

WB got A-listers like Henry Cavil and Ben Affleck and they are clueless at what to do with them.

I'm okay with Aquaman 2 but with no Man of Steel 2 or Ben Affleck led Batman movie in sight, I think WB are not setting their priorities right.

Birds of Prey was even pushed forward instead of Suicide Squad 2 and Flash got delayed.

Come onnnn angry

films are made to make m0ney but its n0t always abt m0ney. Films are creative c0ntents aimed at satisfying a want; entertainment then make m0ney. If its all abt the m0ney, there's no creative c0ntent, you aren't satisfying any want, who would want to waste time with your brand? That Warner Bros has failed to do. They haven't built a brand let alone a brand image for DC contents. With the way they are going, it will get to a point WB goes bankrupt or sell out like Fox did.

films are made for a target audience and target market. Without them, the studio would be out of business. Disney kn0ws this, that's why they're able to trump the market. WB doesn't. They just rely on a loyal fan base like harry potter and CB fans. They don't branch out to include other publics or audience.

So why didnt MAN OF STEEL and BVS blow as expected despite following your logic?

The market is volatile and unpredictable... Solo: A Star Wars Story bombed, and when asked Disney said they didn't know what happened... And that's a movie in a money spinning franchise...
You can't blame DC for choosing to side with movies that are already guaranteed to be box office hits. As well as the entertainment, profit must be made, taxes paid, plus a whole lot of costs involved which are mostly not reported.
@bolded, Warner Bros already had a fantastic year branching out with successive box office hits:
- Ready Player One
- The Meg
- Crazy Rich Asians
- Detective Chinatown 2
- Rampage
- The Nun
- Ocean 8
- Paddington 2
- etc

The debut movie of WonderWoman made what Thor and Captain America: First Avenger made at the Box Office combined.
Thor: =$449.3 million
CA: FA = $370.6 million
WonderWoman = $821.8 million

Incredible Hulk : $245.4 million
Iron Man : $585.2 million
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice =$873.6 million

Are you not making a foöl of yourself bro?
context matters..
have you check checked the production costs of this movies?
I hate when people bring out lists like this before actually getting to know how much was spent making it.
