It’s official: Suicide Squad has taken home an Oscar! The action-packed flick made its way into theaters last year, and the blockbuster introduced a slew of villains to the DC Extended Universe. Baddies like Harley Quinn and Deadshot were forced to work together on a task force focused on making super-villains do the jobs normal soldiers could not. Despite mixed reviews, the colorful film went on to make bank at the worldwide box office, and it can now add an Academy Award to its long list of accolades.
Of course, the win has caused quite a stir online. Fans of the DCEU are taking a moment to celebrate a major win for the franchise while others question the film’s win. Either way, the Academy has caused sites like Twitter to be inundated with reactions to Suicide Squad’s win.
So, naturally, ComicBook.com is here to help you find some of the funniest (or saltiest) replies to news.
Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad: The Extended Cut is now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
