Suicide Squad director David Ayer has revealed that DC Comics executive James Gunn has suggested that a director's cut of the movie could be released in the future.

The DC Studious movie was released in 2016 and received negative reviews. It starred Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis and Cara Delevigne.

Following the poor reception Suicide Squad received, Ayer assured fans that the theatrical version was not his version and that a much better director's cut existed, and it actually might see the light of day judging by his latest comments on Twitter.

"There’s a genuine curiosity and interest from a lot of people," he wrote.

"And I’m aware of there is another group of people that have fun mocking the film. Your comment is a perfect example of how many are magnetically drawn discussion to the 2016 film in a negative way. Have you ever had an experience in life that didn’t until the way you wanted, that dragged you, that made you rethink everything?

"I have.

"All I know is my unseen film plays much better than the studio release. The interest in my cut being show seems real and organic. And Gunn told me it would have its time to be shared. He absolutely deserves to launch his DC universe without more drama about old projects.

"In a way, I’m chained to this thing. I’m riding a tiger here and navigating this situation the best I can. Life is a very strange journey."

Interestingly, in 2021 Gunn directed a sequel to the movie, titled The Suicide Squad. It received much more positive reviews from critics and fans.
