David Ayer says his original version of Suicide Squad "scared" the studio

  David Ayer says his original version of Suicide Squad The director talks his version of Suicide Squad, AKA the Ayer CutWhen Suicide Squad debuted in 2016, it was met with mostly bad reviews, but still managed to score over $700 million at the global box office – and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn became a fan favorite, starring in Birds of Prey and reappearing in James Gunn's upcoming soft-reboot/sequel The Suicide Squad (which now has a trailer and two TV spots).

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has revealed what he wanted to accomplish with his Worlds of DC sequel-cum-reboot.

Speaking to Den of Geek, the Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker suggested that previous "spectacle" movies were never given the freedom to unpack characters – perhaps insinuating that action sequences take precedence.

"I wanted to do the things that other spectacle films haven't been able to do, which is really take my time and investigate these characters, get to know them, focus on the character aspects, focus on who they were, and deal with time in a different way than it's been dealt with in these movies," he commented.

With a huge ensemble cast to contend with, it's a good job.

Gunn went on to discuss one of The Suicide Squad's surprise antagonists.

"Starro is hilarious because he's ridiculous. He's a giant, cerulean blue starfish, but he's also f**king terrifying," said the director.

"When I was a kid I thought that was the scariest thing of all time... and I think that exemplifies what this movie is: it is ridiculous and it's also terrifying, and serious. So he works really well as the villain of the movie – as one of the villains, actually."

The Suicide Squad is out in cinemas in the UK on August 6 and is released in cinemas and on HBO Max in the US on the same day.

James Gunn reveals that he is receiving threats from Suicide Squad fans if he kills off their fave characters .
If you’ve been keeping up to date with the many, many superhero films that are due to be released you might be aware that a new Suicide Squad movie is just months away from being released. The confusingly named The Suicide Squad is a sequel to 2016’s lambasted Suicide Squad, which introduced the world to new takes on beloved DC characters such as Harley Quinn and the Joker in the blockbuster about a ragtag bunch of supervillains who are made to do effectively impossible missions by the government or face death.
