Suicide Squad Director’s Cut Would Be ‘Easy to Complete,’ Says David Ayer

Suicide Squad director David Ayer says that a director’s cut of his DC universe movie would be “easy to complete.” The comment stands in contrast to the news of the infamous “Snyder Cut” of Justice League releasing in 2021 and costing $20 – $30 million. Ayer made the comments in a tweet Monday, responding to a Collider editor asking why DC didn’t release his cut of Suicide Squad on a service like HBO Max. “This is a good question,” Ayer responded. “My cut would be easy to complete. It would be incredibly cathartic for me. It’s exhausting getting your ass kicked for a film that got the Edward Scissorhands treatment. The film I made has never been seen.” [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=every-dceu-movie-review-score&captions=true”] Ayer made similar comments about other footage cut from or left in Suicide Squad. When asked about a scene from a trailer featuring Katana’s eyes being suddenly filled with a murky black liquid, Ayer said he’d filmed a scene where Enchantress uses a tendril to take over Katana and attack her allies. Ayer also seemingly criticized the cuts that were made to Suicide Squad for ignoring some of the fundamentals of good storytelling and editing.  “Good screenwriting means complete arcs culminating with some kind of closure for each main character,” Ayer said. “It’s not rocket science. When you cut the joists the building sags.” Ayer says that the “only battle I won” was keeping in a bit where the character Diablo references that he’s killed women and children.

Look at my films – death, guilt, redemption and emancipation from toxic relationships are themes I explore as a filmmaker. The human soul is beautiful and complex.” Ayer added that an impressive shot of Enchantress’ hand gripping June Moon and transforming her was his idea, and that he had more footage fleshing out their relationship. Yes – Enchantress / June Moon were more solidly arced out in my cut. https://t.co/Zoaaug3cTU — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) May 24, 2020   With the news of Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League being revived, some DC fans have taken to calling for a similar director’s cut of Suicide Squad, which was originally supposed to end with a different villain and a much bigger Justice League connection. Ayer appears to still hold some complicated feelings…
