David Ayer recently called his cut of Suicide Squad “amazing ” and a “heartfelt drama”.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League has now passed us. Hence, DC fans are looking for something to focus their energy on. Fans do want to watch Snyder’s DC Extended Universe continued in some way but they are also very excited and vocal about their support for David Ayer’s cut of Suicide Squad. WarnerMedia’s head Ann Sarnoff announced last week that Ayer’s cut will not see any development.
Since 2016, David Ayer has said many times that the Suicide Squad which released in 2016 and was loved by all was not his cut. He recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly where Ayer stated that executives had an idea to turn Suicide Squad into Deadpool after seeing the movie’s success and had said that his version was “amazing”.
He said in the interview,
“I get it, it’s a business. It’s frustrating because I made a really heartfelt drama and it got ripped to pieces and they tried to turn it into Deadpool, which it just wasn’t supposed to be. And then you take the hit, you’re the captain of the ship, my name was on it. [Laughs] Even though it didn’t represent what I actually made, I would take all the bullets and be a good soldier. I made an amazing movie. It’s an amazing movie, it just scared the shit out of the executives.”
Will we ever get to see David Ayer’s cut of the movie?
This is the synopsis of The Suicide Squad by James Gunn-
“Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”
