The Suicide Squad has been out for about two weeks now, and since this is the kind of thing the internet loves, here is how the various DC Extended Universe movies stack up for me. There are 11 films in the franchise so far, which in case it’s not clear, means I am only looking at films in the current, interconnected universe that started with Man of Steel. If I’m honest, this list didn’t turn out exactly how I thought it might when I decided to do it, which is interesting to me at least!
If you agree or disagree, feel free to reach out to me on social media, I’d love to hear from you. And now, on to the list:
James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad will hit theatres this weekend, and it is one of the most highly anticipated DC films in ages. There are nine films in the DCEU so far, or ten depending on how you count the versions of Justice League, and here is where you can rent, buy, or stream each one.
Here you go folks. [Zack Snyder tweeted an official image of the new Batmobile](https://twitter.com/ZackSnyder/status/509889431210192896). It looks… fine. There were some photos posted yesterday by a bystander of the thing parked in the street which I didn’t post, partly because i am on holiday and partly because they were terrible photos, but this gives a much better idea of the actual look.
Yes, there’s a big gun on the front. Apparently there is more than a little backlash around the web about the gun but I don’t really care. Every Bat-vehicle so far has had lots of guns and Zack Snyder’s style isn’t exactly subtle, so why are we at all surprised?
Besides, this new franchise has already missed the point of Superman and this movie in particular only exists to set up more movies in the future. Another studio tried that with one of the most popular superheroes on the planet this year and it went, uh, poorly.
Don’t get me wrong here: I sincerely hope this movie turns out to be fantastic. I really do. WE’re living in a golden age of nerd properties being cool and I want to revel in every moment of it before it passes. I just have no faith that this director and this writer are going to deliver a good movie. They couldn’t even come up with a good title after all.
Remember how a few months back we figured out that [both DC and Marvel had movies scheduled for the same weekend in May 2016 and it turned out that it was going to be _Batman v Superman_ opening at the same time as _Captain America 3_ and neither camp said they’d consider moving their movie](https://awesomefriday.ca/2014/03/awesome-captain-america-3-and-man-of-steel-2-aka-superman-vs-batman-are-coming-out-on-the-same-day-and-nerds-of-the-world-will-have-a-field-day-arguing-who-will-win-the-box-office-that-weekend-for/)? Well turns out that Warner Brothers and DC have changed their mind and moved _Batman v Superman_ ahead two months to March 2016 and announced 9 new release dates to boot.
