Leave a comment


Suicide Squad may have just proven that sometimes, it’s good to be bad. The trailer for the highly-anticipated super villain film has officially garnered more views on YouTube than the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Promos for both films officially premiered during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con but EW reports that as of Tuesday morning, Squad‘s had garnered the most views, with more than 37.5 million hits on YouTube. Meanwhile, despite having a two day head start, Batman v Superman‘s latest trailer has been viewed 35.7 million times.



Suicide Squad, which stars Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and more as some of DC Comic’s most notorious villains-turned-heroes on a secret mission commissioned by the government, posted its trailer last Monday after a poor quality version of the Comic-Con exclusive leaked on the Internet. The leak forced Warner Bros.’ hand and the studio wound up releasing the HD version of the trailer way ahead of schedule.



If the latest numbers are anything to go by, looks like the trailer’s early release may have have worked to its benefit.

Both films are set to hit theaters next year with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiering on March 25, 2016 and Suicide Squad landing on August 5.
