SUICIDE SQUAD Director David Ayer Is Back To Teasing The Ayer Cut With New Look At Jared Leto's Joker
Despite saying he was done talking about his original "Ayer Cut" of Suicide Squad, director David Ayer continues to tease fans with a new image of Morbius star Jared Leto as the Clown Prince of Crime.
When James Gunn's sequel/reboot arrived in theaters and on HBO Max back in August, director David Ayer took to Twitter to issue a lengthy statement. Reiterating that his version of the 2016 movie was vastly different to what Warner Bros. released, he concluded by stating, "I will no longer speak publicly on this matter." Well, that didn't last long, as the filmmaker just dropped another social media tease.
This time, he's shared a never-before-seen image of Jared Leto as The Joker, accompanied by a message stating, "Jared killed it...But no one knows."
At this point, we do know, as it's been mentioned several times. Leto reprised the role of the Clown Prince of Crime in Zack Snyder's Justice League for a memorable epilogue, but the Oscar-winner now appears to have moved on from the role as he's got Sony's Morbius on the horizon.
It remains to be seen whether Ayer will continue to tease Suicide Squad, but after The Suicide Squad underperformed, it's hard to imagine revisiting this franchise is a priority for Warner Bros. in any form (HBO Max's Peacemaker was in development long before that movie was released).
