    I expect this to be among the worst Superhero movies ever made.

    The first preview that came out way back whenever ago made it look awful. In the past month, I'm become more and more excited about it, and will see it Saturday.

    FWIW SS has been getting a lot of mixed to poor reviews. A lot of the same problems that plagued BvS' production seem to happen w/ this one, studio getting too much involved, poor editing. Makes you think Warner Bros. might be more of a problem than previously thought.

    Interested to see what this iteration of the Joker is like in the film. I am very skeptical to say the least.

    Man, it's getting slated. I hope it absolutely bombs then maybe the film industry will see less superhero movies which are currently getting churned out left right and centre.

    Fantastic Four bombing hasn't stopped all the comic book films, I doubt this would. At the moment along with animated films superhero films are your best bet at a big hit, the MCU stuff rakes it in, and even Batman v Superman made almost $900 million despite being slammed by a lot of people.

    And Suicide Squad is projected to make $140 million in its opening weekend in the US, so I wouldn't hold your breathe on it flopping.

    People need to stop going to see crap films just because it has someone with special powers in it.

    Are they ALL crap? I think the MCU films thus far have been pretty good on the whole. Not to mention Christopher Nolan's Batman films, and some of the X-Men films. I'd argue comic book adaptations have had a higher percentage of good films than most other blockbuster types over the last decade.

    I didn't say they were all crap. I just said people need to stop going to see crap films. It just encourages more crapness.

    I think at least a small percentage of those watching are watching just to see how crap it is. But Bubba's right; if it makes money it'll encourage them to produce more.

    Superhero movies that have been released in 2016 (with Rotten Tomatoes score):

    Deadpool (84%)
    Batman vs. Superman (27%)
    Captain America: Civil War (90%)
    X-Men Apocalypse (48%)
    Suicide Squad (30%)

    2 flops, 2 good ones, and X-Men kind of in the middle. Pick any other 5 movies released in 2016 at random and you would probably see a similar distribution of scores. Superhero movies are like any other movie, if they have good writing and/or production value, they will be good movies. There is nothing special about the superhero genre that makes them more or less likely to be a 'crap' movie. Marvel proved this.

    I haven't seen X-Men or Suicide Squad, but I agreed with the critics on the other three. I'll rent Suicide Squad on Amazon or something.
