David Ayer Writes Open Letter on the Suicide Squad Criticism


David Ayer, who wrote and directed Suicide Squad has responded to a fan who praised the film and told him to not let anyone tell him its anything short than a masterpiece.

In the letter, Ayer goes on to mentions that it took him a couple of years of his life, which debunks the rumor that he only had 6 weeks to complete the script. The note also says that there is no special cut of the film with loads of Joker scenes, debunking that rumor as well. He does acknowledge that while it has some flaws he is still happy the film managed to let the general audience get familiar with the great characters in the DC Universe.

We know he is returning to direct Gotham City Sirens, this tells us that he enjoyed his time working on the film and the rumors that there were issues are false.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    A great person, David Ayer is really humble and respectful. The fact that he spent some of his time to write this means a lot. This is a good example of how a person should be. Unfortunately we live in an evil era, where people hate and hate again just for the sake of it. How many directors are so humble to write something like this? Almost none. He spent years trying to make a great movie, to reinvent a well known character like the Joker, to present the cinematic version of comics characters. Just to let people know, he’s the one who said to Warner that he wanted to make a Suicide Squad movie. In the matter of fact, is only thanks to him if a Suicide Squad movie exists, if Harley Quinn was finally presented on the big screen, along others beloved villains. Is only thanks to him if now we will get a Gotham City Sirens movie, and possibly more movies about villains and some spin-off. People juts need to learn respect, a word that only few people seems to understand. David did a great job with Suicide Squad and I’m looking forward to Gotham City Sirens and more.
