‘Suicide Squad’ Replaces ‘Iron Man’ In The Top 50 Highest Grossing Domestic Films Of All Time

suicide squad

Iron Man was Marvel’s introduction to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as such the movie ended up being a smash hit. Old shell head has held the 50th spot in the list of top 50 highest grossing domestic films of all time for quite some time, but DC and David Ayer’s team of villains has just passed Tony Stark for the prestigious 50th spot. Despite negative critical reviews, Suicide Squad has been raking in the cash both domestically ($319 million) and internationally ($731 million) and has more than earned their spot at number 50.

Take a seat Stark, the Squad is here. Suicide Squad will be joining other super hero power players like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (#46 w/ $331 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy (#45 w/ $333 million) on the list of top grossing domestic films. This is no small accomplishment, especially for a film that was completely panned by critics and doesn’t star Batman – even though he was still in it for a couple minutes. Up next? Passing Michael Bay’s Transformers for the 49th spot.

Since the summer was weak in terms of high grossing films, there is a good chance Suicide Squad‘s numbers will continue to grow as it is still playing in some theaters. Also, with a number as high as $319 million, a sequel is almost a guarantee. Let’s just hope its continuation is better than the sequels Tony Stark was given.

Are you surprised that Suicide Squad is doing so well at the box office still? And are you looking forward to an almost inevitable sequel? Make sure to let us know down in the comments!

      Congratulations to WB/DC on finally getting there after almost 40 years…

      • MCU has 5 movies in the top 50, DC has 4, so, isn’t the first one…

      I think that Iron Man was a great movie that was well received by critics and fans. If money is the metric for quality, then I guess Avatar MUST be a good film or something.

      • Peter James

        Avatar is a good movie, though.
        Perhaps not “great”, but it would be hard to argue from an objective perspective that it’s not a good movie.

        It doesn’t matter how you feel about it or Cameron, but fact of the matter is that objectively it is a well-made and enjoyable movie.

        And money is not even the metric I’m using to come to that conclusion.

      I’m not a “MCU lover” by any stretch of imagination (although I do enjoy their movies), but if I were, I imagine I’d probably say, why don’t you make a movie that actually grosses $1 Billion at the Box office in this new DCEU universe of yours first, and then we’ll talk.

      Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man alone has been in, or starred in MCU movies that have grossed over $4.5 Billion for Marvel since they started making them -and he’s looking at another $2-3 Billion from his next two movies for them (Spider-Man and Avengers : Infinity War).

      Join the Billion dollar club first, and then we can talk like grown-ups, but until then, enjoy the JV league.

      I mean,….I imagine, that’s what I’d say….

      Movie ticket prices has risen a lot since Iron Man was released so I’m pretty sure if you adjust for inflation or compare number of tickets sold, Iron Man still comes up on top… but hey, who really cares?

      I wasn’t a big fan of how the movie turned out. It was clearly tampered with by a panicking studio. But if this movie was such a huge success then that means more are coming our way, and that could be good news in itself. Let’s just hope this time they don’t panic and they actually let the director do it the way he wants to do it.

    YEAH BRO!! I mean, big deal that the movie has a 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as long as we make that $$$!!! Quality? Pfffffff…we don’t need that. Just give us those big bucks.
