Suicide Squad director David Ayer in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, talking on his latest Netflix movie Bright, was asked on the reviews that Suicide Squad received and them being divisive.
Ayer goes on to say that the reviews were bad and he got his throat cut, but also talks on how the fans reaction for the film was polarizing and does say regardless how Suicide Squad returned out, he loves Warner Bros. and wouldn’t walk away.
You filmed this at the end of last year, right after Suicide Squad had come out and the reviews, obviously, were divisive.
It was sh*t. Yeah, it was sh*t reviews. I got my throat cut. [Laughs]
And then fans, whether they loved it or hated it, tend to get very loud.
It was a super polarizing movie. Incredibly polarizing.
Lastly, you mentioned getting your throat cut on Suicide Squad, but I appreciate the fact that you haven’t walked away from DC and you haven’t walked away from that world considering everything.
You know, I’m not a film school guy. I didn’t go to college. I’m kind of vocational in my outlook, and it’s like, Now I know how to make that movie! Now I could fix Suicide Squad! So… And I love the comic IPs. I mean, I’m a comic geek. And I love Warner Bros. and I would definitely go back.
