Remember Suicide Squad? You know the movie that cast Will Smith as Deadshot and started Margot Robbie out as Harley? You know the film grossed $746.8 million world-wide? Well rumor had it that there was so much more to that movie. Rumor had it that there was a so called David Ayer Cut. And turns out, rumor was right. And now with the confirmed release of the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League looks like the people are starting to demand that Warner Bros #releasetheAyercut.
Now I think it important to note that Ayer himself has is doubtful that his full version will ever see the light of day stating that: "It is simply not my call or my IP...My cut of Suicide Squad may always be just a rumor. And that’s just fine." However, I think all of this will depend on the success of HBO Max's release of Snyder's Justice League. A re-release that is sparing no expense and reportedly going the distance. Dropping upwards of 20 grand to complete and add new visuals. So yeah, it's looking like they're betting on success.
Success, which will bode quite well for the so-called "Ayer Cut" of Suicide Squad. And the reality is that this is a cut worth releasing. Even more so than Justice League. Because there is reportedly HOURS of Jared Leto's joker that never made the cut which to me was always dumb choice made by Warner Bros. Jared Leto definitely got the short end of the stick on this one and then was destroyed by Joker fans who never truly got to see him shine OR fail in the role.
So here's hoping Justice League gets it right the second time around. But that's just how I feel. What do you think? So you think we should get the Director's cut of movies at a second pass and are you one of the people who want Warner Bros to #releasetheAyercut? Let us know in the comments section below!
