It wasn't too long ago that Suicide Squad director David Ayer suggested he would "no longer speak publicly" about his cut of the 2016 critical flop, but that hasn't stopped DC fans from pleading with Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheAyerCut. The filmmaker has clearly taken note as he's once again been responding to people on Twitter to explain what it would take to finish off his version of the movie.
After Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice underperformed financially and critically, Warner Bros. panicked and made a series of sweeping changes to Ayer's vision for Suicide Squad to make it lighter in tone. This resulted in an incoherent mess of a movie, but those of you still rooting for the "Ayer Cut" will be excited to hear that making it a reality wouldn't be too difficult.
In the Tweets below, the director reminds his followers that his version of Task Force X's big screen debut is completely different to what ended up in theaters, adding that there's "No need for reshoots. Just some VFX work." In other words, it would be relatively simple for Warner Bros. to add the finishing touches and drop the "Ayer Cut" on HBO Max to finally silence those very vocal fans.
However, even after Zack Snyder's Justice League proved to be a hit for the streaming service, we don't see Warner Bros. returning to the "SnyderVerse" to share David Ayer's Suicide Squad with the world.
Stranger things have happened over the years, of course, so we'll have to wait and see for now.
