David Ayer is still hopeful that the 2016 director’s cut of Suicide Squad will be released, despite the WarnerMedia CEO saying no last week.
David Ayer, 2016 Director Suicide squadHe’s still hopeful that there will be a director’s edit release for the much-maligned film. Before its release, the DCEU Suicide squad was highly anticipated among fans, generating buzz with its Queen-endorsed trailers and colorful posters. However, the movie itself turned out to be a huge disappointment, with many disagreeing with the confusing plot and tone. Since then, Ayer has opened up about how Warner Bros. ‘finally forced meddling Suicide squad in a different direction than he had originally planned. The studio was disgusted with reactions to the dreary Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and sought to prevent Suicide squad to go the same way.
Last year’s announcement that the famous Snyder Cut of League of Justice (the one fans had spent years fighting for) would debut on HBO Max spawned several fan campaigns in hopes that they could get similar results for projects that they felt the studios had neglected. This included Yesterday’s. Suicide squad director’s edit. Yesterday he encouraged fans to contact WarnerMedia directly about Suicide squad and some fans have tried to promote the cause. However, WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff said last week that the studio has no plans to launch the Suicide squad Cut yesterday.
Yesterday he initially responded to the news on social media with a disappointed face, but has now spoken a bit more on the subject. In a new interview with THAT, Yesterday he shared his continued hopes for a Suicide squad director’s edit. He believes that intense fan response to the Snyder Cut may drive a change in the way studios view their projects:
“I think studios now see that there may be canon, there may be no canon, the fans just want to touch it. They love the characters, they just want to spend more time with it. And people are much more sophisticated about how movies are made. and they want to be participants in the journey. There is room for different things, different versions, different assets that are shared with the audience. I think it just helps to strengthen the community. But absolute credit to Warner Bros. for supporting Zack and having the courage to explore that. “
Also, Ayer added that he is still frustrated with the way the initial Suicide squad It turned out, especially since his court was a “amazing movie“:
“I get it, it’s a business. It’s frustrating because I did a really heartfelt drama and it broke into pieces and they tried to turn it into Deadpool, which it wasn’t supposed to be. And then you get hit, you’re the captain of the ship, my name I was in the. [Laughs] Although it did not represent what I really did, I would take all the bullets and be a good soldier. I made an amazing movie. It’s an amazing movie, it just scared the executives. “
When looking at the Snyder Cut, it’s easy to believe that high fan interest can make anything happen. However, the two situations are actually quite different. Director Zack Snyder had to leave League of Justice about a family tragedy, and the resulting version of the film was different than what he initially planned. Fans campaigned for three years to see the Snyder Cut, employing methods like billboards, fundraising efforts, and endless hashtags. Any potential moves to the Ayer Cut have yet to do so on the same scale as the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign, and the reasons for Suicide squadThe alterations weren’t due to tragedy, just studio interference.
On the other hand, for Ayer to see that something he worked so hard on is unnecessarily destroyed due to decisions he didn’t make, it must be difficult. Yesterday is next to Suicide squad you did, and would like to share it with the world. That is understandable. It remains to be seen if WarnerMedia will feel the same, although at this point, it just isn’t happening.
