David Ayer Reveals Joker Footage Cut From 'Suicide Squad'


David Ayer

When 'Suicide Squad' made its way into the DC Extended Universe back in 2016, the critics didn't seem too impressed, but fans managed to turn it into a box office hit. Bringing together a group of villains from the world of DC, all under lock and key but used by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) to go out on undercover illegal missions that would likely see them killed, audiences were introduced to a whole slew of new additions to the DCEU. That included Margot Robbie's take on Harley Quinn, Will Smith's portrayal of Deadshot, and Jared Leto's introduction as the Clown Prince of Crime, Joker.

Ahead of the film's release, speculation was rife as to who would serve as the Big Bad of the picture. All signs pointed towards Joker, but it would turn out being Cara Delevingne's Enchantress that the Squad were forced to take down. In fact, when 'Suicide Squad' did make its big screen debut, Joker's screen time was extremely lacking.

David Ayer Felt "Gun Shy" Directing 'Bright' Following Negative 'Suicide Squad' Reactions


David Ayer

David Ayer is a director who seems to have been through the mill when it comes to the entertainment industry. Creating pictures is something he was clearly born to do, but as of late, he's made two huge films that have been critically ripped to shreds by the majority of reviewers, in the form of DC Extended Universe entry 'Suicide Squad', and last year's Netflix original film release, 'Bright'. Fortunately for Ayer, the wider viewing public seem to enjoy his work.

Though he clearly has a thick skin when it comes to reviews, Ayer recently admitted that he did let the negative response to 'Suicide Squad' get to him. It's something we can all imagine - being told your hard work and dedication wasn't enough over and over again isn't anything any of us would like. Magnifying that on a grand scale must have been a very strange experience indeed.

10 Worst Films Of 2017

When it comes to the biggest flops of the year, most of these movies feature actors, actresses and filmmakers really should have known better. None of them are easy to watch, and unfortunately the list does not end here. Some were huge disappointments, while others went predictably downhill.

David Ayer Still Proud And "Grateful" For 'Suicide Squad'


David Ayer

As one of the most divisive movies to come from the DC Extended Universe, it's fair to say 'Suicide Squad' has both its heavy critics and its heavily loyal fans. Bringing in a slew of new faces to take on some of DC's most recognisable villains and anti-heroes, the movie was set to serve as a launchpad for much of the DCEU, but failed to light a fire in the hearts of everybody watching.

David Ayer was the director responsible for the flick, and whilst he has said in the past he has his regrets about where he took the movie and its central villain, he's still very much aware about the success it DID see, and how proud he should be because of that.

David Ayer Wishes He Made Joker The Primary Villain In 'Suicide Squad'


David Ayer

The DC Extended Universe is not a movie series without its controversies. Just this month, the most-recent entry into the DCEU, 'Justice League' received a lukewarm response upon its official big screen release, and could end up losing Warner Bros. around $100 million when all is said and done in the worldwide box office. A shame, as this year's 'Wonder Woman' did incredibly well both with the critics and wider audience, taking in over $800 million across the globe. 'Justice League' should really have broken a billion.

One of the earlier disappointments for many from the DCEU was 'Suicide Squad'. Released in 2016, the film saw a roster of DC's most recognisable villains come together in the titular team, also known as Task Force X. Ran by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), they were forced to tackle some of the most dangerous missions to help save the world from a grim fate, in a less-than-ethical program that would see a bomb in their brains detonated if they refused to help.

Is it really wise to trust your most dangerous sworn enemies? Sometimes you have little choice when there are threats in the world too brutal to put your best men on. Amanda Weller is in charge of a top secret government organisation known as A.R.G.U.S. They have in their detainment some of the world's craziest psychopaths, supervillains and powerful mutants, and while they are being of no use to society stuck in prison cells, Weller introduces a brand new team known as the Suicide Squad in which these criminals can carry out seemingly impossible missions with the promise of freedom or, at least, reduced sentences. Among them are such fiends as Harley Quinn, The Joker, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Enchantress, Rick Flagg and Killer Croc - who are all willing to band together and save the world, even if they die trying.
