‘Suicide Squad’ Director Tries To Piggyback On The ‘Snyder Cut’ News, Gets Evaporated By The Internet

Warner Bros.

Last week, the entertainment industry experienced a massive paradigm shift as Warner Bros. announced they were providing Zack Snyder with an additional $30 million in funding so that he can complete his “Snyder Cut” of Justice League, which will then be released exclusively on HBO Max next year.

It was a momentous moment for both the film industry and fan culture, as the release of the Snyder Cut proved that the movie-going audience has more power than they realize — they have the legitimate power to get projects made.

Naturally, with that realization in mind, Suicide Squad director David Ayer tried to swim in the wake of the Snyder Cut news by putting out a tweet explaining how “easy” it would be to complete the “Ayer Cut” of Suicide Squad and how it would be personally cathartic for him.

“This is a good question. 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,” Ayer said on Twitter.

Unfortunately for Ayer and hilariously for us, though, the internet was nowhere near as receptive to the idea of the “Ayer Cut”, as the Suicide Squad director was soundly and uniformly dunked on for his suggestion:

Hey, uh, sorry David, but unfortunately there’s no director’s cut without Jared Leto’s truly abominable portrayal of Joker. That one is on you, slick, and since we have to live with it, so do you. Keep that Ayer Cut locked and buried.
