David Ayer Has One Last Request From Warner Bros. For His Suicide Squad Cut

Word from David Ayer about the demise of “Suicide Squad” and his hope for a funeral screening seems somewhat surprising, especially given a hopeful post by the director on X, formerly known as Twitter, in August 2023. In the post, Ayer stressed the better quality of his director’s cut over the original. But he also seemed to understand how pursuing the release of the revamped film may not be a priority for DC Studios co-head James Gunn, who has rebooted the old DC Extended Universe and is starting anew with the DC Universe.

“All I know is my unseen film plays much better than the studio release,” Ayer said in the post. “The interest in my cut being shown seems real and organic. And Gunn told me it would have [its] time to be shared. He absolutely deserves to launch to launch his DC universe without more drama about old projects.”

If Gunn’s alleged promise doesn’t come to fruition and Ayer gets his wish for a private screening of “Suicide Squad,” it wouldn’t be unprecedented. After the studio shocked the filmmakers — if not the entire movie industry — by canceling the release of “Batgirl,” it was reportedly going to be screened by Warner Bros. for the movie’s cast and crew.
