Me, being the Scooby-Doo fanatic I am, decided to make a complete timeline of all the Scooby-Doo content that include the animated series, animated movies, live action films, and possibly the worst Scooby rendition which was the puppet movie all in chronological order. I wanted to show how the gang and the animation style had changed throughout the years, so enjoy!
“When Suicide Squad came out, you couldn’t escape the world’s worst heroes. They were everywhere, despite the average audience-goer knowing only who Harley Quinn and the Joker were due to pop culture osmosis. Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is. Yet a quick look at the playlist for Suicide Squad vs. Wonder Woman on the official Warner Bros. YouTube page is as different as night and day.
Approximately a month before Warner Bros. releases one of their biggest films of the year, one that will go down in entertainment history one way or another simply for being the first film starring Princess Diana, the company has released three trailers and two “Tilt Brush” videos explaining the concept art.
At the same point in the marketing cycle for Suicide Squad, the villainous flick already had three trailers, four TV spots, a “Buy Advanced Tickets” promotional video, and fun little biographies for each member of the team. That’s a hell of a lot more promotion for a B-string list of heroes (at best) than for WONDER WOMAN.
Speaking for myself, I have seen exactly ONE commercial so far and that was two nights ago! Where I live they were showing Suicide Squad ads on basically a non-stop loop this far out from the release of SS.
In the LEGO Batman Movie, Joker mentioned to Batman that they’ve known each other for 78 years. This is because the Joker was first created as a character 78 years ago, in 1939. The very next spring, on April 25, 1940, Joker made his first appearance in Batman #1, published by D.C. Comics.
Ryan Reynolds, who is known for his savvy and humorous social media posts, took to Instagram to honor a superhero — and it wasn’t Deadpool. When the actor found out that Wonder Woman box office tally reached $368 million, surpassing Deadpool‘s domestic box office of $360 million, he posted a picture of the Merc with a Mouth making a heart shape with his hands over a Wonder Woman gold chain with the mildly crass, yet sweet caption “The Merc May Be Filthier, but Her B.O. is Stronger. Congrats #WonderWoman #BoxOfficeBoss” https://instagram.com/p/BWYyVO2jV86/
The DC superhero pic starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins is still going strong at the box office since its June 2 release especially against the likes of Marvel/Sony juggernaut Spider-Man: Homecoming and Edgar Wright’s breakout heist pic Baby Driver. This weekend it earned $9.8 million, placing it in the number four spot in the top five. On its opening weekend it raked in $103.2 million and has since earned over $746 million worldwide, not far behind Deadpool‘s $783 million. The Warner Bros/DC movie broke records as the highest grossing live-action film directed by a woman.
