“My cut is vastly better”: David Ayer Promises His Suicide Squad Version is Like Zack Snyder’s Justice League After Rumors of Being Restored By James Gunn


Suicide Squad released in 2016 was certainly not the cure that DC was looking for. Helmed by David Ayer, the movie boasted an impressive cast of Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and Jared Leto. The movie’s script, however, was so weak that the plethora of actors and characters could not save the film from flopping.

After its release, it was revealed that David Ayer had been made to forcibly cut scenes from the movie which were thought unimportant. After the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the people also wished for Suicide Squad Ayer’s Cut to be released to redeem the 2016 movie.

David Ayer Teases The Release of Suicide Squad Ayer Cut

With the success that Zack Snyder managed to garner after the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, people had found power in revolting. Forcing Warner Bros. Discovery (formerly Warner Bros.) and DC studios to release the Snyder Cut, people had left the entertainment giant no choice but to comply.

The #ReleaseTheAyerCut has been trending for a long time. According to reports and the director, The Ayer Cut contained additional scenes that were cut in the post-production of the movie. David Ayer stated that the scenes included clips of Jared Leto’s Joker, a change in the overall storyline, and more in-depth dive into several characters. The director may get his wish fulfilled as he teased that the release of The Ayer Cut is far but surely happening.

Taking to his Twitter account, David Ayer replied to a tweet and stated that his cut is vastly better than what was released in 2016.

As for the people, Suicide Squad’s Ayer Cut is not far from its release date. As per reports, the new co-head of DC Studios James Gunn and David Ayer have been pals for some time. The duo also exchanged a conversation on Twitter pertaining to a potential release date of The Ayer Cut.

In an interaction between James Gunn and David Ayer on Twitter, it was revealed that they have been good pals for quite some time. When people asked about Ayer’s relationship with James Gunn, here’s what David Ayer had to say.

“He’s always been a good guy. Has been incredibly respectful to me. As far as my cut – Of course I want it seen. And I believe there’s a real shot at it. It just won’t be tomorrow”

The above-stated tweet comes as a relief since it is confirmed that The Ayer Cut will indeed see the light of day. Many people have taken to Twitter in support of David Ayer and his version of Suicide Squad that the people were not allowed to see. As for now, the case remains unconfirmed as DC Studios has not officially greenlit the project nor have they given any official release date.

The 2016 Suicide Squad is available to stream on HBO Max.
