It seems David Ayer has given up hope of ever getting the opportunity to revisit 2016's Suicide Squad and finally releasing his director's cut of the movie...

David Ayer has held out hope that Warner Bros. would eventually release his director's cut of 2016's Suicide Squad for many years, and only recently confirmed that he had discussions with DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn about unveiling his original vision for the supervillain team-up movie to the world.

However, it seems Ayer has now officially thrown in the towel.

When asked for an update on Twitter, the filmmaker made it clear that he's "done with DC," because the studio has "no interest" in releasing his cut of the film.

Ayer also responded to someone asking about Gunn initially showing his support for the Ayer Cut, and he appeared to suggest that the GOTG Vol. 3 director may have simply been overruled.

It's a shame that we'll likely never get to see Ayer's cut of Suicide Squad, but, in all honestly, Warner Bros. making the decision to re-release a critically-panned movie - no matter how different this new version may or may not be - was probably always going to be a long-shot, especially with the DCU reboot on the horizon.

Are you disappointed about this development? Drop us a comment down below.

Figuring they're all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.

What was the studio going to gain by releasing it? If the film was as good as Ayers says it is, it would just infuriate fans and show that the downfall of the DCEU was their fault.

@GeneralZod - hope this is the last we hear about this completely unasked for “Ayer cut” that he keeps bringing up for no damn reason

@Shivermetimbers - i think he sees all 57 of the hardcore snyder fans still in his mentions asking about it and thinks there’s a mass appeal to releasing it, “but the evil studio won’t allow it!!”

@GhostDog - I think he genuinely feels a lot of anxiety and pain over that movie. He's made some really good flicks prior. Fury and End of Watch are good films. Shoot he wrote Training Day. I think he sees Suicide Squad as an indictment on his career and it's hard for him to get past it because there was some serious studio interference. Perhaps it wasn't a good movie regardless but I can't fault the man for feeling so terrible about the one that got away. I'd watch an Ayer Cut. I just don't see it working within what Gunn wants within a brand new vision for the IP. It would be rehashing old DCEU stuff amidst a brand new period in DC film content. I feel for him but it is what it is. Hopefully he knows he's got it in him to make some banger indy films down the line that show people he's always had it in em.

@OriginalGusto1 - I definitely did. I love the comic especially the late 80s/early 90s run. There were moments in the studio film I liked, and moments I liked in the Gunn version (and moments I hated). I have liked other things Ayer worked on, and feel like his version could have been a step up from the 2016 film.
