‘Suicide Squad’ Gets Ahead Of ‘Batman V Superman’ In Blu-Ray/DVD Sales

Suicide Squad

It seems Suicide Squad has gotten ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Blu-Ray and DVD sales, according to The-Numbers. The former, since its release on home video, has sold over 1.6 million Blu-Rays and 971,026 DVDs. Whereas Batman v Superman has sold 1.5 million in Blu-Ray units and 619,096 DVDs. Monetarily speaking, Suicide Squad beats out Dawn of Justice by a pretty large margin, with the former making a total of $48,416,041 vs the latter’s $39,156,850 in Blu-Ray sales.

This is interesting seeing as how Dawn of Justice came out on home video far before Suicide Squad did and by all accounts, both Batman and Superman are both far more popular characters than many of the ones who appear in David Ayer’s film. Another fun fact is that the movie is also beating out other comic book movie adaptations like Deadpool and Captain America: Civil War.

Fans have long argued over which film is better and, although both films were received by a mixed critical reception, both Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman have made a good amount of money at the global box office. Suicide Squad 2 is already being developed and Batman and Superman will be seen again in this year’s Justice League.

10 Deadliest Super Villain Groups In Comic Books

Super villain
Everyone loves the hero, but the super villain gets to have all the fun. The Justice League and Avengers are great, but their foes are just as powerful. And, unlike their heroic counter parts, the villains have no problem being deadly on the battlefield.

Some villains are scary enough on their own (I’m looking at you Joker) but sometimes they need to team up to be able to meet their goal. Two heads are always better than one, even if their evil heads, and ten evil heads is even better. At the end of the day there are very few villains who can take down a full team of superheroes by themselves. It falls to super villains to come together and start alliances to earn any of the respect they so badly want.

Head to the comment section and let me know if I forgot about any of your favorite super villain groups!

    How the F**k?
    BvS had a really good extra footage bonus, SS had 10 minutes of padding.

    The numbers website shows over 52 million in blue ray sales for BvS

      I don’t know who put this article together or why they used that website, or how they managed to get everything so wrong. Their charts only show Suicide Squad total through early January and their DVD numbers are at almost 1.14 million units even though this article says it’s at less than 1 million. And the BvS numbers stop in November for DVD sales and December for Blu-ray. And those numbers are wrong too. They have BvS DVD totals at nearly 1.16 million when this articles states it only has 619,000 and the Blu-Ray totals are at 2.2 million compared to the stated 1.5 in this article. Then you go to monetary sales and Suicide Squad has $49.6 million (another number this article got wrong) be BVS
