David Ayer and the ‘Suicide Squad’ cast respond to negative reviews

David Ayer already weighed in on the negative Suicide Squad reviews on Twitter, but last night at the London premiere of the movie, Reuters caught up with him and some of the cast to get their take.

Everyone pretty much gave the same answer — they made this movie for fans, not critics. David Ayer even takes a jab at some of those critics. Check out the video above or some excerpts below for more.

“The critics have been absolutely horrific, they’re really, really horrible. You know, I just don’t think they like superhero movies,” Cara Delevingne said. “It doesn’t really matter what the critics say at the end of the day. It’s the fans that we made this movie for.”

“At the end of the day critical acclaim is really nice, but we made it for the fans. If the fans like it then we did our job,” Margot Robbie replied.

David Ayer added, “I made the movie for real people who live in the real world. I made the movie for people who actually love movies and go and see movies. The movie’s a lot of fun and the fans are really going to enjoy this.”

“I think people had expectations that may have been different, but I’m excited for the fans to get to vote,” Will Smith said.

Digital Spy caught up with some other members of the cast. Jay Hernandez, who plays El Diablo, said that the critics can kiss his ass!
