Whether or not the Ayer Cut will be released down the line is still up in the air, but it’s nice to hear Ayer’s recent remark about his version, adding more fuel to fans’ excitement.
Reddit user DJ31259 unearthed evidence about David Ayer’s cut of 2016’s Suicide Squad, pointing out that the director claimed back in 2018 that he had no access to his cut.
However, a previous tweet from Ayer might suggest that he saw his cut recently, potentially hinting that the director is currently working on his cut.
I took the hits like a good soldier when the studio cut hit the streets. It’s who I am.
I watched my cut for the first time since it was abandoned.
It is f*cking amazing. On God.
I felt guilty for years like I f*cked. Nope. It’s fire. It’s the tone of the Comicon trailer 100% https://t.co/sFlFiGW5yN

It remains to be seen if David Ayer’s version of Suicide Squad will experience the same treatment with the Snyder Cut, but this new evidence clearly provides hope for longtime fans of the film. Additionally, Ayer’s reference to Suicide Squad’s Comic-Con trailer is an interesting bit, since the footage and tone presented in that teaser were the main selling point that got fans hooked.
