Suicide Squad Has Defeated Batman V Superman On YouTube
It’s little surprise that two of the best or at least two of the most interesting things to emerge out of Comic Con this year was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. Exciting new trailers for both surfaced on YouTube, although the latter movie was a forced release due to leaks.
However something interesting has happened. Despite the leaked video of Suicide Squad sapping some 7 million views, the official trailer has managed to (at the time of writing this) exceed 40,035,738 views, which is mighty impressive. It’s been live since July 13.

What’s more impressive about this figure is that the trailer for Suicide Squad has actually surpassed the view count for the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic Con trailer, which currently sits at 37,369,543 views. Bear in mind as well that the Suicide Squad trailer released two days after the Batman V Superman one.
Of course there’s numerous reasons for this. A major one would be that people have already heard a lot about and seen a bit of Batman V Superman, whereas Suicide Squad is something completely fresh. The biggest reason would be that everyone wants to see Jared Leto as the Joker, especially to see what life after Heath Ledger will be like.
The curiosity alone to glimpse the new Joker makes this turn of events quite understandable. I’m sure Warner Bros won’t be complaining. It certainly helps as well that Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman will share in the glory of each others’ success, ideally speaking, given that they’re both set in the same universe.
Suicide Squad certainly seems to be a sequel to Batman V Superman or at least Man of Steel, given that Amanda Waller mentions Superman in the beginning of the trailer and the new Batman is in the movie. I’d venture a guess and say that the movie takes place after Batman V Superman.
Either way, those views are impressive, and the trailers were awesome. If you haven’t seen them by now, just do it!
