DC fans are fighting for the release of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad Director’s Cut, which was cut by Warner Bros. before its release in theaters. The film has been heavily criticized for its lack of character development and plot holes.
DC fans are demanding the release of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad Director’s Cut. The film was met with mixed reviews, but many people believe that it deserves a second chance.
More than ever, DC fans want Warner Bros. to #Release Suicide Squad: TheAyerCut, after writer-director David Ayer’s open letter on Thursday claiming that the studio cut of the 2016 hit is “not my movie.” Only a “handful of individuals” have seen the unpublished version of Suicide Squad, according to Ayer’s letter titled “My Turn,” in which the director expresses his support for Warner Bros. and the James Gunn-directed not-a-sequel The Suicide Squad. A critic wrote that Ayer should “abandon the concept” of the Suicide Squad director’s cut, which Ayer acknowledged exists ahead of the premiere of Zack Snyder’s four-hour Justice League Snyder Cut.
In a personal open letter released Thursday, the Training Day director said, “I poured my life into Suicide Squad.” “My cut is a complex and emotional trip with some ‘bad individuals’ who are spat on and abandoned (a theme that resonates in my soul). My film is not the studio cut. Reread what you just read. And my cut isn’t the 10-week director’s cut; it’s a completely developed Lee Smith edit built on John Gilroy’s amazing work. There isn’t a single radio tune in the whole film, thanks to Steven Price’s excellent soundtrack.”
The Ayer Style “features conventional character arcs, great performances, and a strong third-act conclusion Only a few individuals have seen it. If someone claims to have seen it, they most likely haven’t.”
Ayer went on to say: “I’ve never given my side of the story, and I’m not going to start now… That’s how old school I am. As a result, I kept my lips shut and endured the onslaught of often startlingly personal criticism.” Ayer continued by saying that he’s “”I support WB and am thrilled the franchise is getting the legs it needs… I am so proud” of Gunn, whose follow-up is neither a direct sequel nor a total reboot of Suicide Squad, concluding: “I support WB and am thrilled the franchise is getting the legs it needs… On this subject, I shall never longer talk publicly.”
In October, Ayer tweeted that his never-before-seen version of Suicide Squad “100%” fits the tone of Warner Bros.’ well-received first-look trailer from San Diego Comic-Con in 2015. “It’s awe-inspiring. Thank you, God “At the moment, Ayer sent out a tweet. “For years, I felt guilty, as if I had f*cked up. Nope. It’s a blaze.”
While marketing the $175 million DC Comics adaptation in 2016 and 2017, Ayer claimed ownership of the version of Suicide Squad that was released in cinemas. Years later, in response to repeated fan requests that WarnerMedia follow in the footsteps of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and premiere the Ayer Cut on HBO Max, Ayer stated in an October tweet that he would consider it “When the studio cut hit the streets, he took the blows like a good soldier. It’s a part of who I am.”
Ann Sarnoff, Chair and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group, said Variety only days after HBO Max debuted the long-rumored Snyder Cut of Justice League on the streaming service, that the firm “won’t be producing David Ayer’s cut [of Suicide Squad].” “Why?” tweeted Ayer in reaction to the news.
Despite the impending release of The Suicide Squad in cinemas and on HBO Max on August 6, Gunn recently stated that he supports Ayer and Warner Bros. releasing the Ayer Cut. In March, Ayer stated his desire to #ReleaseTheAyerCut — but after the release of Gunn’s film, tweeting that releasing his director’s cut so soon to the premiere of Gunn’s franchise-reinventing The Suicide Squad would be “horrific brand management.”
Fans are rallying behind the “Release the Ayer Cut” hashtag, which was inspired by the fan-driven “Release the Snyder Cut” campaign, which had Snyder complete and release his original vision for Justice League. On August 5, the fifth anniversary of Suicide Squad, fans will gather online to push Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheAyerCut.
