9 Ways Suicide Squad Will Crush Captain America: Civil War

The late, groundbreaking producer Julia Philips referenced the following saying in her book You’ll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again: ‘If you can’t be the best, be first’. By this logic, the cinematic smack-down between Captain America: Civil War and Suicide Squad is already over. Why? Well, Civil War comes out May 6 and Suicide Squad drops August 5.

To that end, considering that the films come out three months apart, this really isn’t a fair fight. We’ll only know which film did better by the box office receipts that are tallied. At present, word of mouth on Captain America: Civil War is quite good. Suicide Squadhas had decent word of mouth, but it seems that there are many things working against it.

In fact, the 41-year-old actor has received a total of five nominations for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor by the Academy over the years. But he has yet to take an Oscar home. All might change this year: Up for grabs is the Best Actor award for his role in The Revenant. Will 2016 be this actor’s lucky year?

Acting since the age of 5 (his first appearances include the TV shows Romper Room and Growing Pains), Leonardo DiCaprio has ranked up quite a career, acting in the second highest grossing film of all time (Titanic), which incidentally won a record-tying eleven awards that year, but none in the Actor categories.
